Quick Honey Mustard Beef With Seasonal Vegetables

This is a super quick recipe that I know my family will always eat without moaning.  My husband is a big fan of red meat, myself and my daughters - not so much. However this recipe has a good flavour and I make sure there is plenty of rice and vegetables, not just loads of meat.  Give it a go!

1 1/4 cups basmati rice (cook using your prefered method)

3-4 cups chopped vegetables (cauliflower, broccoli – whatever you’ve got)

400g rump steak, cut into short strips

1/4 cup honey

1 teaspoon butter

1 tablespoon whole grain mustard

1 teaspoon curry powder

small pinch cayenne pepper (optional)

cooking spray

Preheat the grill. Cook the rice using your usual method.

Cut the cauliflower and broccoli into small florets. You can put a steaming basket over a pot of simmering water, fill with the prepared veg and cover with a tight-fitting lid, then steam the veg until they are 'tender crisp'.  Or do what I do and microwave them. LOL

Heat a frying pan until it's very hot, spray lightly with cooking spray and sear the meat quickly in small batches. Combine the remaining ingredients in a small saucepan and heat them gently.

Put the meat into a heatproof dish, pour over the sauce and place under the grill.  Turn the meat frequently in the sauce, until cooked to your liking.  Put the vegetables in with the meat and toss so the vegetables are covered in the sauce.  Pile the meat and vegetables on top of the rice and serve on a large platter or on individual plates.
