We are back with a small Hello Fresh series (I guess) as you may know, we had purchased and tested the Hello Fresh boxes previously, and although they are great, they were a tad bit too pricey for us, but when they came back to us with their new prices, we decided to give them another shot.
As well as their new prices, they have changed their packaging for easier access and understanding, bigger and better instruction cards, so far so good.
All ingredients listed were included and instructions are their own.
We don’t make enough beef dishes as we’d like to, so this was a good one, anything to be marinated is a good sign to us! Also, brown rice is never usually on our radar but it should be!
Makes: 2 | Prep Time: 5 mins | Cook Time: 25 mins
– 175g brown basmati rice
– 2 garlic cloves
– 1/2 tsp ginger
– 2 spring onion
– 1 bok choy
– 3 tbsp soy sauce
– 1 1/2 tbsp honey
– 250g flank steak
– 15g sesame seeds
1. Put a Large Saucepan of water with a pinch of salt on to boil for the rice. Rinse the brown rice thoroughly under cold running water then add to your pan of boiling water. Cook on high heat for 25 mins. Drain, cover with a lid (or plate) and keep to one side.
2. Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press). Peel the ginger using the edge of a teaspoon and finely chop (or grate). Remove the root from the spring onion and finely slice, separating the white and green parts. Remove the root from the bok choy, then slice thinly widthways.
3. In a small bowl, mix the soy sauce with the honey, half the garlic, the ginger and the whites parts of the spring onion. This is the teriyaki marinade! Cut the steak into thin strips and soak in the marinade for as long as possible.
4. Heat a splash of oil in a frying pan on high heat. Add the steak and fry until browned then remove from the pan and set aside on a plate. TIP: Leave the excess marinade in the bowl while you brown the steak in batches. Once all the steak is cooked and removed from the pan, cook the marinade for 1-2 mins. Then add the steak back in and remove from the heat.
5. In a separate frying pan, heat a splash of oil over medium heat. Add the remaining garlic and cook until it just starts to change colour. Add the bok choy with a pinch of salt. Cook for 2-3 mins. Add the drained rice, a grind of black pepper and mix. Cook until it’s heated through.
6. Serve the garlicky bok choy and rice topped with the teriyaki beef. Sprinkle over the green parts of the spring onion and the sesame seeds and ENJOY!
