Before you begin...
Get all your ingredients and equipment ready
Skim through these steps
Wash your fruit and veg
Note: equipment and pan sizes vary. Ensure you cook food thoroughly (even if it takes you a little longer than 10 mins)
Now, let's get started!
Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of vegetable oil over the highest heat
Meanwhile, rip the little gem leaves into rough, bite-sized pieces and add them to a large bowl
Microwave the steamed brown basmati rice according to packet instructions
Tip: if you're cooking two packets, pop them in together but increase the microwave cook time accordingly!
Once your pan is very hot, add the beef strips with a pinch of salt and the chilli flakes (Can't handle the heat? Go easy!)
Cook for 1 min exactly, turning once halfway and making sure you don’t overcook them
Once done, transfer the beef strips to a plate to rest
Combine the fish sauce, soy sauce, hoisin sauce and rice vinegar with 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] vegetable oil in a small bowl – this is your dressing
Slice the cucumber in half lengthways and slice finely
Add the cucumber, heated rice and dressing to the bowl with the lettuce and give everything a good mix up
Pick the mint leaves from their stalks
Set the dressed salad in the centre of the table, ready to share
Top with the beef strips, fried onions and mint leaves, and let everyone dig in
