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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
