It’s time to master this stir-fry staple in your own kitchen. For the best result, make sure your pan is searing hot before adding the beef. Don’t be afraid to cook the veggies for a few minutes either – you want them to keep a little bite. And finally, top it all off with a sprinkling of crushed peanuts for extra crunch!

Finely chop the garlic. 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 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.
While the rice is cooking, grate the ginger. Zest the lemon to get a pinch, then slice into wedges. Thinly slice the carrot (unpeeled) into half-moons. Cut the broccoli into small florets and roughly chop the stalk.
In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a high heat. When the oil is hot, cook the carrot and broccoli with a splash of water until tender, 6-8 minutes.
Reduce the heat to medium, then add another drizzle of olive oil to the veggies. Add the ginger and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Add the oyster sauce, lemon zest, water (for the veggies) and a squeeze of lemon juice. Toss to coat and cook until heated through, 1 minute. Transfer to a bowl.
In a medium bowl, combine the Southeast Asian spice blend and a drizzle of olive oil. Add the beef strips and toss to coat. Wipe out the frying pan and return to a high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Cook the beef strips, in batches, until cooked through, 1-2 minutes.
Divide the garlic rice between bowls. Top with the Southeast Asian beef and veggie stir-fry. Sprinkle over the crushed peanuts. Serve with any remaining lemon wedges.
