Finely chop the garlic. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter with a dash of olive oil over a medium heat. Add 1/2 the garlic and cook until fragrant, 1-2 minutes. Add the basmati 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 10 minutes, then remove from the heat and keep covered until the rice is tender and the water has absorbed, 10 minutes.
TIP: The rice will finish cooking in its own steam so don't peek!
While the rice is cooking, finely grate the ginger. Thinly slice the carrot (unpeeled) into batons (or half-moons if you'd prefer!). Thinly slice the capsicum. Trim and halve the snow peas.
In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat. Cook the carrot and capsicum, tossing, until just tender, 4-5 minutes. Add the snow peas and cook until tender, 1-2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and transfer to a bowl.
While the veggies are cooking, combine the soy sauce, hoisin sauce, ginger, honey, water (for the sauce) and remaining garlic in a small bowl.
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, tossing, until browned and cooked through, 1-2 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Return the beef to the pan along with the hoisin mixture. Cook until sauce is heated through, 1 minute.
TIP: Cooking the meat in batches over a high heat helps it stay tender.
Divide the garlic rice, beef and veggies between bowls. Top with any extra sauce from the pan. Garnish with the crushed peanuts.
