  • 200g dried basmati rice
  • Low-calorie cooking spray
  • 400g beef frying steaks, all visible fat removed, thinly sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp finely grated fresh root ginger
  • 2 onions, thinly sliced
  • 650g ready-prepared stir-fry vegetables
  • 1 tbsp medium curry powder
  • 4 tbsp dark soy sauce/tamari
  • 3 level tbsp sweet chilli sauce
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and thinly sliced, to garnish
  • Lime wedges, to serve


  1. Cook the rice according to the packet instructions.
  2. Meanwhile, place a wok or large frying pan sprayed with low-calorie cooking spray over a high heat. When hot, stir-fry the beef for 3-4 minutes, or until just cooked through. Transfer to a plate and keep warm.
  3. Rinse the wok, wipe dry with kitchen paper and re-spray it with low-calorie cooking spray. Fry the garlic, ginger, onions and stir-fry vegetables for 6-8 minutes, or until just beginning to soften. Add the curry powder and cook for 1 minute. Add the soy sauce and sweet chilli sauce and stir-fry for a further minute.
  4. Drain the rice. Toss the beef through the vegetable mixture, then divide between 4 shallow bowls. Serve, garnished with the chilli, with the rice and the lime wedges for squeezing over.

Tip: Make it veggie: Use 400g firm tofu cut into 1cm cubes instead of the beef, and follow the recipe as above – 1 Syn on Extra Easy.
