  • ½ large Savoy cabbage, shredded

  1. Cook the rice following pack instructions. Meanwhile, in a bowl, mix the steak strips with the chilli sauce to marinate.

  2. Heat 1 tbsp of the oil in a large frying pan or wok over a high heat and stir-fry the meat for 2 mins until beginning to colour. Don’t be tempted to overcook the steak at this stage as you want it slightly pink in the centre. Once done, set aside on a plate.

  3. Add the garlic and most of the spring onions and chillies to the pan, reserving some to serve, and continue to stir-fry for 2 mins. Add the cabbage and cook gently for 10-12 mins until beginning to soften.

  4. Return the rice and steak to the pan and mix everything together until well combined. Sprinkle over the sesame seeds, the reserved spring onions and chillies, and drizzle over more chilli sauce to serve.

The recipe is very simple, but the end product was quite tasteless. The flavours didn't seem to quite go together. Something seemed to be missing. For a start, I would have used a bit more oil.
