In a medium saucepan, bring the water to the boil. Add the jasmine rice, stir, cover with a lid and reduce the heat to low. Cook for 12 minutes, then remove the pan from the heat and keep covered until the rice is tender and the water is absorbed, 10-15 minutes.

TIP: The rice will finish cooking in its own steam so don't peek!


While the rice is cooking, thinly slice the red onion (see ingredients). In a medium bowl, combine the vinegar and a generous pinch of sugar and salt. Scrunch the onion in your hands, then add to the pickling liquid. Add just enough water to cover the onion, stir to coat then set aside.


While the onion is pickling, finely grate the ginger and garlic. In a medium bowl, combine the ginger, garlic, soy sauce and honey. Add the beef strips and toss to coat. Thinly slice the carrot (unpeeled) into half-moons. Cut the capsicum into 2cm pieces. Roughly chop the Asian greens.


Heat a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the mixed sesame seeds and toast, tossing, until golden, 3-4 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl. Return the frying pan to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Cook the carrot and capsicum, tossing, until tender, 4-5 minutes. Add the Asian greens and cook until tender, 1 minute. Transfer to the bowl with the sesame seeds, along with the Japanese dressing. Toss to coat.


Return the frying pan to a high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Cook the beef strips, shaking off any excess marinade, tossing, until browned, 1-2 minutes (cook in batches if your pan is getting crowded). Transfer to a plate.


Drain the pickled onion. Divide the rice between bowls. Top with the sesame veggies, Japanese beef and pickled onion. Serve with the coconut sweet chilli mayonnaise.
