Ingredients
  

  • 1 lbs ground beef
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp ginger root grated
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 cup long-grain white rice dry
  • 2 carrots shredded or cut into ribbons
  • 1 cup red cabbage shredded
  • 4 radishes thinly sliced
  • 2 spring onions thinly sliced
  • 1 lime cut in to wedges
  • fresh mint to serve
  • sesame seeds to serve
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • In a small saucepan on medium-high heat, combine rice with 2 cups of water and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce to a simmer and cook until all of the water has been absorbed and the rice can be fluffed with a fork, about 15 minutes.
  • In a cast-iron or heavy-bottom skillet, warm sesame oil to medium-high heat.
  • Add ground beef, breaking it apart with a wooden spoon, season with a pinch of salt and pepper and cook for 4-5 minutes until lightly browned.
  • Add ginger, garlic, chilli flakes, soy sauce and honey, and stir to combine. Continue to cook the beef until dark brown and crispy.
  • Once the beef is cooked, assemble the bowls; divide the rice, vegetables and beef evenly across the bowls.
  • Top with sesame seeds, fresh mint or coriander, and lime wedges to serve.
