• Finely chop garlic. In a medium saucepan, heat the butter and a dash of olive oil over medium heat. Cook half the garlic until fragrant, 1-2 minutes. • Add the water and a generous pinch of salt and bring to the boil. Add jasmine rice, stir, cover with a lid and reduce the heat to low. • Cook for 12 minutes, then remove pan from the heat and keep covered until rice is tender and water is absorbed, 10-15 minutes.
TIP: The rice will finish cooking in its own steam so don't peek!
• While the rice is cooking, thinly slice cucumber into half-moons. In a small bowl, combine the vinegar and a good pinch of sugar and salt. • Add cucumber to the pickling liquid with just enough water to cover the cucumber. Set aside. • In a second small bowl, combine ginger paste, the soy sauce, honey, a splash of water and the remaining garlic. Season with pepper. Set aside.
• When the rice has 10 minutes remaining, heat a large frying pan over high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Cook Asian stir-fry mix, tossing, until tender, 4-5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl. • Return the frying pan to high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Cook beef strips and sweet soy seasoning in batches, tossing, until browned and cooked through, 1-2 minutes. • Reduce the heat to medium. Return all beef to the pan, then add the ginger-soy mixture, stirring, until slightly thickened, 1-2 minutes. Remove pan from heat, then return the veggies to the pan and toss to coat.
• Drain pickled cucumber. Divide garlic rice between bowls. • Top with ginger-soy beef and veggie stir-fry. Spoon over any remaining ginger-soy sauce. • Top with pickled cucumber and garnish with crushed peanuts to serve. Enjoy!
