Beef congee (or a thick gloppy rice dish)

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
8 ounces Rump steak coarsely chopped
8 ounces Long grain rice
\N \N Stock or water
\N \N Piece of star anise
2 \N Cloves garlic, mashed
1 \N Inch piece of ginger sliced into 5-6 pieces
6 \N Spring onions
8 ounces Mangetout
\N \N Salt, pepper
\N \N Sesame oil

Put the rice and four times it's volume of stock/water into a thick bottomed pan. Add the star anise, garlic, ginger, salt, pepper and half the spring onions. Bring to the boil then simmer, stirring occaisionally, until the rice turns into a thick glop - about 40 minutes. Add more water if needed.

Remove and discard the spring onion and add the beef. Cook for two minutes. Add the beans and cook for a further two minutes.

Chop the remaing spring onions and add, along with a dash of the sesame oil. Goes very well with chinese chilli sauce and/or soy sauce.
