Spicy Beef Stir Fry

Another quick & tasty use for mince! I deseed the chillies but leave them in if you want it spicier. For the rice I have used a pouch of cooked microwave rice (about 50p-60p) but if you prefer you can use rice that you have cooked yourself.


Serves 4   Approx 96p per serving

Prep Time 10 minutes   Cooking Time 20 minutes

Level 🍴



  • 500g minced beef
  • 1 pouch microwavable rice
  • 1/2 bunch spring onions, finely chopped
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded & finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 100g mushrooms, sliced
  • 1tsp ground ginger
  • 3 tbsp light soy sauce
  • pinch of black pepper

Place a large frying pan over a medium heat & brown the mince in batches. Set aside.

Add about 2 tbsp oil to the pan & cook the mushrooms for about 2 minutes until starting to colour. Add the spring onions, chilli & garlic. Cook for another 2 minutes & add the rice. Stir well to coat the rice & cook for 4 minutes.

Add the mince back to the pan & stir everything together until combined.

Add the ginger & soy sauce, stir again & simmer for 5 minutes stirring occasionally.

Serve immediately.
