Ginger beef and cavolo nero



olive oil, for frying
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
5cm ginger, peeled and cut into fine matchsticks
1 x 400g sirloin steak, sliced into thin strips
5-6 long cavolo nero leaves, finely shredded
2tsp light soy sauce
1tsp honey
¼ tsp Chinese five-spice powder

To serve
cooked rice


Heat a little oil in a wok or wide frying pan. Add the garlic and ginger, along with a pinch of sea salt, and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes. Add the steak strips and continue to stir-fry for a further 3-4 minutes. Add the cavolo nero and cook for 1 minute more.

Add the soy sauce, honey and five-spice powder and stir-fry for another 2 minutes, until the honey caramelises and turns sticky. Place on warmed plates and serve immediately with the cooked rice.
