This sizzling hoisin-infused beef bowl is a joy unparalleled. Simplicity is the winner here, with a garnish of mint and a squeeze of fresh lime being the crowning glory on this quick and easy weeknight winner.
Unfortunately, this week's Asian greens were in short supply, so we've replaced them with broccolini. Don't worry, the recipe will be just as delicious!

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 the garlic and cook until fragrant, 1-2 minutes. Add the basmati rice, water (for the rice) and the 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 is absorbed, 10 minutes.
TIP: The rice will finish cooking in its own steam so don't peek!
Thinly slice the carrot (unpeeled) into half-moons. Cut the broccolini into 2cm pieces. Zest the lime to get a generous pinch, then slice into wedges. Pick and roughly chop the mint leaves.
In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, water (for the sauce), hoisin sauce and a generous squeeze of lime juice. Set aside.
In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat. Add the carrot and broccolini and cook until just softened, 3-4 minutes. Add the lime zest and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Transfer to a bowl and cover to keep warm.
Return the frying pan to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Add the beef mince and cook, breaking up with a spoon, until just browned, 4-5 minutes. Add the hoisin sauce mixture and cook until fragrant and heated through, 1-2 minutes.
Divide the garlic rice, veggies and hoisin beef between bowls. Garnish with the mint and serve with any remaining lime wedges.
