For a speedy and delicious dinner that's ready within 20 minutes try this fragrant Chinese stir-fried beef with broccoli and cashew nuts. This sticky beef dish is aromatic, with exotic notes of ginger, five spice and oyster sauce.

  1. In a medium bowl, combine the soy sauce and Chinese five spice with a grind of black pepper. Add the beef and turn to coat.
  2. Heat 1 tbsp of the oil in a large frying pan or wok (with a lid) over a high heat. Add the beef and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes, or until browned. Remove the beef from the pan and set aside.
  3. Heat the remaining oil in the pan or wok. Add the garlic, ginger, chilli flakes and cashews; stir-fry for 1 minute. Add the oyster sauce and 50ml (2fl oz) water. Bring to the boil, add the broccoli, then cover and cook for 3 minutes more.
  4. Return the beef to the pan to warm through. Add the lime juice and spring onions. Serve with the lime wedges and some rice or noodles, if you like.
