Step 1

Preparation: Prepare all ingredients as indicated above. Boil the kettle.

Step 2

Brown rice: Place a saucepan on medium heat and pour in the boiling water (see quantity above for the brown rice). Add a little salt, then add the rice and boil gently for 18-20 minutes on medium heat. Drain and keep warm in a colander over a saucepan of hot water.

Step 3

Lime: Using the fine side of a box grater, grate the skin of the lime to create lime zest. Then cut in half and juice. Set aside.

Step 4

Broccoli: Cut the broccoli into florets and cut the florets in half. Set aside.

Step 5

Sauce: In a bowl, mix together the ginger, soy sauce, garlic, chilli (optional), honey, sesame seeds and the lime juice.

Step 6

Mince: Place a large pan on medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. When the pan is hot, add the mince and break it apart with a spoon. Cook for 5 minutes until golden. Add HALF the sauce and the green beans. Cook for 2 minutes, then add the broccoli and cook for another 2 minutes until the greens are bright green and cooked, but with a slight bite.

Step 7

Serve the beef mince with the rice topped with the REST of the sauce, a drizzle of sesame oil, a sprinkle of lime zest and the bean sprouts. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
