Asian steak & peanut stir-fry

This stir-fry is made with marinated, tender steaks, roasted peanuts and fresh corriander and lime. The wilted cabage bulks out the stir-fry and the dish is excellent when served with light vermicelli noodles.

  • 340g essential Waitrose Frying Steak

  1. Put the steak in a shallow dish and pour over the soy sauce and five-spice. Place the cabbage in a colander in the sink. Pour over a kettleful of freshly boiled water, then drain.

Add the cabbage and stir-fry for 4-5 minutes until wilted. Stir in the soy marinade, fish sauce, lime juice and three-quarters of the coriander, chopped. Reserve a handful of leaves for garnish.

  4. Cut the steak into thin strips; add to the stir-fry with any juices. Top with the coriander leaves, remaining peanuts and lime wedges.
