  • 1 Pack Perfectly Balanced Beef and Vegetable Mince
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 celery stalks diced
  • 2 tsps curry powder
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons powdered chicken stock
  • 1 cup basmati rice OR use short grain white rice
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 carrot peeled and diced
  • Handful Green Beans ends trimmed and chopped
  • 1/2 green or sugarloaf cabbage, finely shredded


  1. Heat oil in a large wok or frying pan on medium heat. Bring to the boil, then place the lid on and reduce to a simmer.    
  2. Add celery and cook until onion softened (approx. 1-2 minutes). 
  3. Add mince, and cook, stirring to break up the mince, until browned (approx. 5-8 minutes). 
  4. Add curry powder and stir through for 30 seconds or until fragrant. Add 2 cups of water, carrot, powdered chicken stock, rice and soy sauce and stir to combine. The water should cover the mince completely, so if it hasn't, add a touch more. 
  5. Stir occasionally for 10 minutes, or until water absorbs and rice is cooked. 
  6. Add 1/2 a cup water to the wok, then pour in the green beans and cabbage and stir through.  Place the lid on and cook for a few minutes, allowing the cabbage to steam.
  7. Serve with extra soy sauce and sesame seeds, if desired.
