Recipe provided by Seasoned Cookery School

Finely chop the ginger and garlic - either by hand or in a blender (especially handy if you are doubling ths recipe for large quantities).

Heat a large casserole pan with a splash of vegetable oil, add the beef and allow to seal off, gaining colour. When the meat is sealed on all sides add the ginger and garlic and stir fry for a couple of minutes until the ginger and garlic are slightly coloured. (You may wish to fry the beef in batches depending on the size of your pan).

Add the remaining ingredients and bring to a simmer.

Simmer for 2-3 hours until the meat is super tender. Taste and adjust the seasoning to your liking.

This can be cooked 2-3 days in advance, or frozen, defrosted and reheated.

To serve, slice and prepare all of your garnishes to sprinkle at the table and serve with rice.
