Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • Bunch of spring onions, chopped
  • 100g frozen peas
  • 500g ready-cooked Thai fragrant rice
  • 2 large free-range eggs, beaten
  • 2 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • Lime wedges, to serve

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a wok or large frying pan until very hot, then add the spring onions and stir-fry over a high heat for 1 minute. Add the peas, cook for a further minute, then add the rice and toss well.
  2. Make a well in the centre of the rice and pour in the eggs. When the bottom starts to set, scramble the eggs, then stir through the rice. Stir in the soy sauce and sesame oil and season to taste.
  3. Divide the rice among bowls and top with the stir-fried beef recipe. Serve with lime wedges to squeeze over.

    1. No make ahead – the rice should be cooked straightaway and eaten. Prepare all the ingredients ready for stir-frying up to a few hours ahead, keep chilled, covered until ready to cook.
