    20 minutes

    Beef is an iron-rich protein source; it also supplies many of the B vitamins as well as zinc. Served in small quantities, with vegetables and grains, lean beef makes a healthy and flavoursome meal.

    1. Combine the beef, oil and garlic in a small bowl. Heat a wok or a heavy nonstick frying pan over high heat. Add the beef strips in small batches and stir-fry for 1 to 2 minutes. Remove each batch when cooked and allow the pan to reheat before frying the next batch.
    2. Add the capsicum and mushrooms to the pan with a sprinkling of water. Steam for 1 to 2 minutes, then return the beef strips.
    3. Stir in the curry paste, brown sugar, fish sauce, coconut milk, spinach and coriander. Toss for 1 to 2 minutes or until heated through. Serve with rice, if liked.

    Very nice - quick and easy. The coriander really makes all the difference, and the fresher it is, the better. Thank you.  -  24 May 2010
