Here's a great way to use beef mince: make rissoles reminiscent of an island holiday. The key ingredient in the creamy coconut sauce? Our mild Caribbean spice blend; a little peppery, a little punchy, and slightly sweet, it brings the components together perfectly and really makes the dish sing.

mild Caribbean jerk seasoning(ContainsSulphites)
white wine vinegar
In a medium saucepan, bring the brown rice and the water to the boil over a high heat. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer, uncovered, until the rice is soft, 25-30 minutes. Drain and return to the saucepan.
While the rice is cooking, drain the sweetcorn. Heat a large frying pan over a high heat. Add the corn kernels and cook until lightly browned, 4-5 minutes. Meanwhile, roughly chop the cucumber and tomato. Finely chop the garlic. Transfer the charred corn, cucumber and tomato to a medium bowl. Drizzle with white wine vinegar and olive oil. Toss to combine and season to taste.
TIP: Cover the pan with a lid if the kernels are "popping" out.
In a medium bowl, combine the beef mince, egg, fine breadcrumbs, 1/2 the garlic and a generous pinch of salt and pepper. Using damp hands, roll heaped spoonfuls of the mixture into meatballs, then flatten to make 2cm-thick rissoles. Transfer to a plate. You should get 3-4 rissoles per person.
In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat. Cook the rissoles in batches, until browned and cooked through, 3-4 minutes each side. Transfer to a plate.
Wipe out the frying pan and return to a medium heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Add the Caribbean jerk seasoning (see ingredients) and remaining garlic and cook, until fragrant 30 seconds. Add the coconut milk and simmer, stirring, until slightly thickened, 2-3 minutes.
Divide the brown rice, beef rissoles and sweet corn salsa between bowls. Spoon the Caribbean coconut sauce over the rissoles. Tear over the coriander to serve.
