Beef with cashew nuts

Chinese food is so good, healthy and uick to make and this one is really fanatstic. The sate sauce makes all the difference so if you don’t have any just mix a 1 tablespoon peanut butter with 1 tablespoon water to thin it out a bit. For thoe who like a little heat you can happily add 1 finely chopped green chili. (4 people)

What you need

  • 500 – 600g rump steak, fat removed, sliced thin across the grain
