Low carb dinner recipe for Chinese Five Spice Sirloin Strips with lemon, ginger, chilli and garlic
500g sirloin steak
1 tsp Chinese five spice
2 tsp fresh ginger – peel and grate
1 fresh chilli – de-seed and chop finely
4 cloves garlic – crush, peel and chop finely
2 lemons – halve and juice
1 tbsp fresh coriander – chop coarsely
200g sugar snap peas
1 head broccoli
4 spring onions – cut off ends and slice finely
2 tsp beef stock granules
4 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp runny honey
olive oil, salt and pepper (from your pantry)
Put a dry griddle/frying pan on high heat. On a chopping board rub both sides of the steak with salt, pepper, half the Chinese five spice and olive oil. Place steaks in hot pan and sear for 2 to 3 minutes either side for a medium steak. Adjust time to suit your preference. Important – only turn steaks once using tongs (or spoons). When done, place steaks on a chopping board and drizzle with olive oil. Then spoon on the ginger, chilli, half the garlic and half of the lemon juice. Let them stand for a few minutes and then slice at an angle (against the grain) into 1cm strips. Toss the strips in the spices and juices.
Put a saucepan of lightly salted water on high heat. Add the sugar snap peas and broccoli and boil for 2 minutes. Remove the greens with a slotted spoon and set aside in a bowl and keep warm. Add the beef stock granules and mix well. Remove from the stove, pour the beef stock broth into a jug.
Divide the following ingredients between the bowls for each serving:soy sauce, spring onions, runny honey, half of the Chinese five spice, half the garlic and half of the lemon juice.
Ladle a splash of the beef stock broth into each bowl. Then add the greens and sirloin strips. Garnish with chopped coriander.
