  • Oil for Frying
  • 300g Sirloin Steak
  • 3 Tbsp Cornflour
  • 3 Garlic Cloves, Crushed
  • 3cm Ginger, Grated
  • 1 Fresh Chilli, Deseeded and Finely Chopped
  • 1 pack Mange Tout
  • 4 Spring Onions - finely sliced
  • 5 Tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 4 Tbsp Honey
  • Juice of 2 Limes
  • 1 can Coconut Milk
  • 1 can Water
  • 2 large handfulls Basmati Rice
  • Desicated Coconut to garnish rice (optional)


    1. Slice the Beef into very thin strips and coat with the Cornflour
    2. Mix the Soy Sauce, Lime Juice and Honey together and set aside.
    3. Pour the Coconut Milk and water into a pan and bring slowly to the boil.
    4. While that is boiling, heat your oil (about 4 - 5cms) in a wok until hot.
    5. Fry the Beef in batches until dark brown in colour and crispy - set aside on kitchen towel to drain off any excess fat from frying. Discard oil except 1tsp.
    6. Add Rice to the Coconut and Water mix which should now be boiling. cook for 5 mins then simmer for a further 7-10 mins or until cooked to your liking. Tip into a sieve when cooked and allow to drain.
    7. Heat up the wok (with the 1tsp oil reserved) and add the Garlic, Ginger and Chilli. Stir Fry for 1 min then add the Mange Tout for 1 min.
    8. Add the beef back to the wok along with the Spring Onion and stir fry for 1 min, then add the sauce. Stir Fry for a further 2 minutes and serve.
    9. Serve Beef with a good spoonfull of Rice, which is sprinkled with Desicated Coconut.
    10. ENJOY!

One of my favourites, the Mange Tout can be substituted for your favourite veg and the flavours are well balanced :D
