Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking: 20 minutes
Serves: 4

 

Ingredients

500g beef stir fry strips
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 x 250g packets microwave brown rice and chia
1/2 cup frozen peas, thawed
2 spring onions, thinly sliced
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
3cm piece ginger, finely chopped
1 bunch asparagus cut into 3cm lengths
150g sugar snaps, halved diagonally
1/4 small Chinese cabbage, roughly chopped
1 tbsp Shaoxing wine
1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp honey, coriander sprigs, lime wedges, to serve

Method

Spray a large, non-stick frying pan with oil and heat over medium-high heat. Pour eggs into pan and cook for 1-2 minutes per side or until lightly golden. Set aside on a plate and thinly slice.
Prepare rice according to packet instructions.
Add rice, peas, green onions and egg to same pan over medium heat and cook for 2-3 minutes or until heated through. Cover with foil to keep warm.
In the same large, non-stick frying pan, heat half the oil over high heat. Cook beef, in 2 batches, for 1-2 minutes or until browned and tender. Set aside on a plate covered with foil.
Reduce heat to medium-high, add remaining oil to pan and cook red onion and ginger for 1 minute. Add asparagus and sugar snaps and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until vegetables are nearly tender. Add cabbage and cook for a further 1-2 minutes.
Return beef to pan, add Shaoxing wine, vinegar, soy and honey and toss to coat.
Divide rice between plates, top with stir-fry, sprinkle with extra spring onions, coriander sprigs and serve with lime wedges.

Tips:
You can slice rump, scotch fillet, sirloin or fillet of beef to make your own stir-fry strips.
Swap asparagus and sugar snaps for snow peas and Asian greens.
Use any type of leftover or microwave rice for the fried rice.
