Method

Step 1

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

Step 2

Brown rice (parboiled): Pour the boiling water (see quantity above for the brown rice) into a saucepan, add the rice and some salt. Bring to the boil then gently simmer with the lid on for 18-20 minutes on a low heat. Drain if there is any excess water.

Step 3

Carrots: Cut into matchsticks – here’s how: peel and cut in half crossways. Slice each piece lengthways (5mm). Finally place each piece down flat and cut lengthways again into a matchstick – about 5mm wide.

Step 4

Cucumber: Cut into matchsticks – here’s how: cut the ends off the cucumber, then slice the four edges around the seeds. Cut these edges in half crossways, then lay them down flat and cut lengthways into matchsticks (about 5mm). Discard the core containing the seeds.

Step 5

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

Step 6

Salad: Mix together the carrots, cucumber, spring onions and red cabbage. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice to taste.

Step 7

Satay: Mix together the peanut butter, soy sauce, lime zest and juice, chilli (optional) and garlic. Add the hot water (see quantity above for the satay) and mix until the sauce is a runny consistency. Add a little more hot water if necessary.

Step 8

Beef kebabs: Toss the beef cubes in a little olive oil, salt and pepper. Thread onto bamboo skewers. Place a large griddle or frying pan on medium-high heat. Add a little splash of olive oil to the pan. When hot, add the kebabs and pan fry for 8-10 minutes, turning occasionally, until brown all over and still slightly pink inside. Remove from the pan.

Step 9

Serve the beef kebabs with the rice, topped with the salad. Top the salad with the peanuts and the satay sauce. You can also serve the satay on the side.
