Before you begin...
Get all your ingredients and equipment ready
Skim through these steps, then wash your fruit and veg
Note: Equipment and pan sizes vary. Make sure 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 a high heat
Once hot, add the beef mince and crumble in 1/2  Knorr beef stock cube
Cook for 3-4 min or until the beef is browned all over, breaking it up with a wooden spoon as you go
Add the mangetout to the pan and cook for 1 min until starting to soften
Add the Thai red curry paste, ginger paste and half of the chilli flakes (can't handle the heat? Go easy!) to the pan and cook for 1 min further or until fragrant
Meanwhile, chop the basil finely, including the stalks
Slice the lime[s] into wedges
Add the tomato paste, a pinch of sugar and a small splash of water to the pan and mix until everything is combined
Squeeze the pouch[es] of white basmati rice to separate the grains
Add the basmati rice to the pan, breaking it up with a wooden spoon as you go and give everything a good mix up
Stir through half of the chopped basil and the juice of 1/2  lime (save the rest for garnish!) and cook for 1-2 min further or until the rice is piping hot and the beef is cooked through – this is your Thai beef rice
Note: Please make sure you cook your beef thoroughly (until piping hot!) as cooking equipment varies
Serve the Thai beef rice and garnish with the remaining basil, chilli flakes (not a fan of spice? Just add a little!) and lime wedges
