  • sirloin steak
  • Chinese five spice
  • fresh ginger – peel and grate
  • fresh chilli – de-seed and chop finely
  • garlic – crush, peel and chop finely
  • lemons – halve and juice

  • sugar snap peas
  • broccoli
  • spring onions – cut off ends and slice finely
  • beef stock granules
  • soy sauce
  • runny honey
  • olive oil, salt and pepper (from your pantry)


Step 1

Put a dry griddle/frying pan on high heat. On a chopping board rub both sides of the steak with salt, pepper, half the Chinese five spice and olive oil. Place steaks in hot pan and sear for 2 to 3 minutes either side for a medium steak. Adjust time to suit your preference. Important - only turn steaks once using tongs (or spoons). When done, place steaks on a chopping board and drizzle with olive oil. Then spoon on the ginger, chilli, half the garlic and half of the lemon juice. Let them stand for a few minutes and then slice at an angle (against the grain) into 1cm strips. Toss the strips in the spices and juices.

Step 2

Put a saucepan of lightly salted water on high heat. Add the sugar snap peas and broccoli and boil for 2 minutes. Remove the greens with a slotted spoon and set aside in a bowl and keep warm. Add the beef stock granules and mix well. Remove from the stove, pour the beef stock broth into a jug.

Step 3

Divide the following ingredients between the bowls for each serving:soy sauce, spring onions, runny honey, half of the Chinese five spice, half the garlic and half of the lemon juice.

Step 4

Ladle a splash of the beef stock broth into each bowl. Then add the greens and sirloin strips. Garnish with chopped coriander.
