Ingredients

  • 2 large garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1½ tbsp lime juice, plus extra wedges to serve
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 3 tsp light brown sugar
  • 2 x 300g beef sirloin steaks
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 long red chilli, thinly sliced
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 1 red and 1 yellow pepper, sliced
  • 175g tenderstem broccoli, trimmed
  • 150g podded broad beans, blanched in boiling water for 1 minute (then skins discarded, if you like)
  • 100g sugar snap peas
  • 50g cashews

Method

  1. Make a dressing by mixing the garlic, lime juice, soy and sugar together in a bowl, then set aside.
  2. Heat a griddle or frying pan over a high heat. Brush the beef all over with half the sesame oil and season with salt. Griddle for 2 minutes on each side, then remove and slice into thin strips.
  3. Heat the remaining sesame oil in a wok over a high heat. Add the chilli, onion, pepper and broccoli. Stir-fry for a couple of minutes, then add the broad beans, sugar snap peas and cashews. Add a splash of water (to help steam the veg) and stir-fry for a further 4 minutes.
  4. Stir through the strips of beef and cook for a further minute. Pour over the dressing and toss well to coat. Spoon among bowls and serve with extra lime wedges, if you like.
