Medium Pan
Large Non-Stick Pan



• Boil the kettle. Half-fill a medium saucepan with boiling water. • Add jasmine rice and a pinch of salt and cook, uncovered, over high heat until tender, 12-14 minutes. • Drain rice, rinse with warm water and return to the saucepan. Add the butter, stir to combine and cover to keep warm. • While the rice is cooking, halve any thicker stalks of baby broccoli lengthways. Roughly chop Asian greens.


• In a large bowl, combine beef mince, fine breadcrumbs, sweet soy seasoning and the egg. • Using damp hands, roll heaped spoonfuls of beef mixture into small meatballs (4-5 per person). Transfer to a plate. • In a large frying pan, heat a generous drizzle of olive oil over medium-high heat. Cook meatballs, turning, until browned and cooked through, 8-10 minutes (cook in batches if your pan is getting crowded). • Add lemongrass & ginger paste and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. • Remove the pan from heat, then add hoisin sauce, the soy sauce, brown sugar and a splash of water. Toss until meatballs are well coated.


• Meanwhile, in a second large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over medium-high heat. Cook baby broccoli until tender, 3-4 minutes. • Add Asian greens and cook until wilted, 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat, then add a drizzle of sesame oil and vinegar. Season with salt and pepper.


• Divide jasmine rice and Asian greens between bowls. Top with hoisin beef meatballs and spoon over any remaining sauce. • Garnish with crushed peanuts to serve. Enjoy!
