Finely chop the garlic. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter with a dash of olive oil over a medium heat. Add 1/2 the garlic and cook until fragrant, 1-2 minutes. Add the jasmine rice, water (for the rice) and the salt, stir, then bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to low and cover with a lid. Cook for 12 minutes, then remove from the heat and keep covered until the rice is tender and the 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 the brown onion. Cut the broccoli into small florets, then roughly chop the stalk. Thinly slice the carrot (unpeeled) into half-moons. Heat a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the sesame seeds and toast, tossing, until golden, 3-4 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.
Return the frying pan to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Add the onion, broccoli and carrot and cook until tender, 6-7 minutes. Transfer the veggies to a medium bowl. In a small bowl, combine the teriyaki sauce, water (for the sauce) and soy sauce. Set aside.
Return the frying pan to a high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. When the oil is hot, cook the beef strips, tossing, until browned and cooked through, 1-2 minutes (cook in batches if your pan is getting crowded). Reduce the heat to low, then add the remaining garlic and season with pepper. Cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Transfer to a plate.
Reduce the heat of the frying pan to medium, then return the beef strips and veggies to the pan. Pour in the teriyaki sauce mixture and 1/2 the toasted sesame seeds. Stir until everything is well coated and warmed through, 1 minute. Season to taste.
Divide the garlic rice between bowls. Top with the sesame beef and broccoli stir-fry. Sprinkle over the remaining toasted sesame seeds. Garnish with the crispy shallots.
