Finely chop the garlic (or use a garlic press). In a medium saucepan, melt the butter with a dash of olive oil over a medium heat. Add 1/3 of the garlic and cook until fragrant, 1-2 minutes. Add the basmati rice, water and salt and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to low and cover with a lid. Cook for 10 minutes, then remove from the heat and keep covered until the rice is tender and the water has absorbed, 10 minutes. TIP: The rice will finish cooking in its own steam so don't peek!


While the rice is cooking, thinly slice the red capsicum. Thinly slice the courgette into half-moons. Drain the sweetcorn. In a medium bowl, combine the beef strips and 1 1/2 sachets of All-American spice blend. Drizzle with olive oil, season with salt and pepper and toss to coat.


Finely chop the tomato. Roughly chop the coriander. To a small bowl, add the tomato, coriander, white wine vinegar and a drizzle of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and toss to combine. Set aside.


In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat. Add the capsicum, courgette and corn and cook, tossing, until softened, 5-6 minutes. Add the remaining garlic and cook, tossing, until fragrant, 1 minute. Season to taste with salt and pepper, then transfer to a bowl and cover to keep warm.


Return the frying pan to a high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. When the oil is hot, add 1/2 of the beef strips and cook until browned and cooked through, 1-2 minutes. Transfer to a plate and repeat with the remaining beef strips. TIP: Cooking the meat in batches over a high heat helps it stay tender.


Divide the garlic rice between bowls and top with the veggies and beef. Top with the tomato salsa, shredded Cheddar cheese and a dollop of sour cream.
