Using coconut milk (the drinking variety) gives this rice all the coconut flavour but without the calories or heaviness of using the full-fat canned variety.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
100g jasmine rice, plus 1 tablespoon
200ml coconut milk from a carton (not full-fat from a can)
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 teaspoons caster sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
1 x 250g bavette steak
drizzle sunflower oil
1/2 small bunch thai basil, roughly torn
large handful coriander leaves, roughly torn
salt
freshly ground pepper

For the dressing

Quantity Ingredient
1 tablespoons fish sauce
2 tablespoons onion pickling liquid
1-2 red bird’s eye chillies, deseeded and finely chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed
1/2 lime, juiced
pinch sugar

Method

  1. Tip the rice into a saucepan with some salt and pour over the coconut milk. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Turn off the heat and leave to steam for 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, combine the vinegar, sugar, salt and 2 tbsp cold water in a small bowl. Add the onion and set aside to pickle.
  3. Rub the steak with a little oil and season. Heat a griddle or frying pan over a high heat. Once hot, cook the steak for 1½ –2 minutes on each side, depending on the thickness – you want it to be pink in the middle. Set aside to rest.
  4. Fork through the cooked rice, then tip it onto a tray and allow it to cool. Drain the pickled onion, reserving 2 tbsp of the liquid. Combine the ingredients for the dressing in a small bowl. Gently toss together the rice, dressing, herbs, and half the pickled onion. Divide between plates then top with the remaining onion.
