Printable 🖨 shopping 🛒 list & 👩‍🍳 method for this recipe


  1. Flash fry the beef so that it is sealed.
  2. Make up the gravy and season so it is of a watery consistency like chip shop gravy (this will reduce during cooking) and then pour it into the frying pan. Cover and reduce until the beef is cooked fully - usually about 20 minutes or so.
  3. Prepare rice as per packet instructions.
  4. Bon appetit!

Serving suggestions

Serve hot - put the rice on a pre-warmed plate, make a small well in the centre and spoon in the beef/gravy mixture.


You could add vegetables such as peas, sweetcorn etc or even sweet/bell peppers. Also, if you find that the beef is a bit tough, cook it as if you were making a stew. Then take the beef out of the water and use some of this water to make the gravy and finally reduce it until it thickens.

Chef's notes

An American friend told me about this dish he had during his childhood, I asked him what ingredients were in it and I made it for him one day, and he was rather impressed!
