Finely chop the garlic. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter with a dash of olive oil over a medium heat. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, 1-2 minutes. Add the jasmine rice, water (for the rice) and the salt, stir, and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to low and cover with a lid. Cook for 12 minutes, then remove from the heat and keep covered until the rice is tender and the water has absorbed, 10-15 minutes. TIP: The rice will finish cooking in its own steam so don't peek!
While the rice is cooking, cut the carrot (unpeeled) into half-moons. Cut the zucchini into half-moons. Cut the capsicum into 2cm chunks.
In a small bowl, combine the hoisin sauce, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, water (for the sauce) and 1/2 the sesame oil blend (see ingredients). In a second small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, remaining sesame oil blend and a splash of water.
Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Cook the carrot, zucchini and capsicum until softened, 5-6 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl and set aside.
Return the frying pan to a high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. When the oil is hot, cook the beef strips, in batches, until browned and cooked through, 1-2 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Return the beef and cooked veggies to the pan. Add the hoisin sauce mixture and cook until bubbling, 30 seconds. TIP: Cooking the meat in batches over a high heat helps it stay tender.
Divide the garlic rice between bowls. Top with the hoisin beef and veggie mixture. Garnish with the roasted peanuts. Drizzle with the sesame mayo to serve.
