Sweet Mince and Rice

Prep Time: 2 mins Cooking Time: 14 mins


  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 62ml low salt soya sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • ½ teaspoon mild chilli powder
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • Boil in the bag’ rice or microwave rice pouch
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 500g minced beef
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 40g frozen peas
  • 4 spring onions, finely chopped



In a small bowl, whisk together the maple syrup, soya sauce, sesame oil, chilli powder and ginger — reserve


If you’re using ‘boil in the bag’ basmati rice, place it in a saucepan of boiling water now and set your timer according to the time indicated on the packet instructions


Whilst the rice cooks, heat the oil in a frying pan over a medium heat and cook the mince and garlic until the mince is browned – drain any excess fat


Once the mince has browned, stir in the sauce you made in Step 1, the peas and spring onions and cook for a further 3 minutes


If you are using microwave rice, cook it in the microwave at this point


Serve once cooled.

his recipe can be made in 14 minutes or under, depending on which rice you choose to serve it with. I always use either ‘boil in the bag’ basmati rice or microwave rice, as my rice cooking skills leave a lot to be desired!
