Finely chop the garlic (or use a garlic press). In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over a medium heat. Add 1/2 the garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Add the water and basmati rice, stir, and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to low and cover with a lid. Cook for 10 minutes, then remove the pan from the heat and keep covered until the rice is tender and the water is absorbed, 10 minutes.
TIP: The rice will finish cooking in its own steam so don't peek!
While the rice is cooking, combine the soy sauce, the remaining garlic, a splash of water and the beef strips in a medium bowl. Mix well to combine.
Thinly slice the carrot (unpeeled) into half-moons. Trim the snow peas and cut in half. Roughly chop the Asian greens.
Heat a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the sesame seeds and cook until toasted, 3-4 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl. Return the frying pan to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the carrot and cook until softened, 3-4 minutes. Add the snow peas and cook until softened, 1 minute. Add the Asian greens and a splash of water and cook until tender, 1 minute. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Transfer to a medium bowl and cover to keep warm.
Return the frying pan to a high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Add 1/3 of the beef and cook, tossing, until cooked through, 1-2 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl and repeat with the remaining beef. Return the beef to the pan and remove from the heat. Add the Sichuan garlic paste and toss to coat.
TIP: Cooking the meat in batches on a high heat ensures a tender result.
Divide the garlic rice and veggies between plates. Top with the Sichuan beef. Garnish the adults' portions with the toasted sesame seeds.
