Method

  1. Spray a large, non-stick frying pan with oil and heat over medium-high heat. Pour eggs into pan and cook for 1-2 minutes per side or until lightly golden. Set aside on a plate and thinly slice.
  2. Prepare rice according to packet instructions.
  3. Add rice, peas, green onions and egg to same pan over medium heat and cook for 2-3 minutes or until heated through. Cover with foil to keep warm.
  4. In the same large, non-stick frying pan, heat half the oil over high heat. Cook beef, in 2 batches, for 1-2 minutes or until browned and tender. Set aside on a plate covered with
    foil.
  5. Reduce heat to medium-high, add remaining oil to pan and cook red onion and ginger for 1 minute. Add asparagus and sugar snaps and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until vegetables are nearly tender. Add cabbage and cook for a further 1-2 minutes.
  6. Return beef to pan, add Shaoxing wine, vinegar, soy and honey and toss to coat.
  7. Divide rice between plates, top with stir-fry, sprinkle with extra spring onions, coriander sprigs and serve with lime wedges.

Tips

You can slice rump, scotch fillet, sirloin or fillet of beef to make your own stir-fry strips. Swap asparagus and sugar snaps for snow peas and Asian greens.
Use any type of leftover or microwave rice for the fried rice.
