Method
  1. Start by putting the rice on to boil. Follow the package instructions for cooking directions.

  3. Grill the steak in a hot frying pan or griddle pan turning to cook for 5 minutes on both sides.
  4. Remove the ribeye from the pan, transfer to a chopping board and allow to rest for half its cooking time before slicing it into thin slivers.
  5. In the meantime, heat a glug of peanut oil in a wok until hot.
  6. Add the onion and stir-fry until translucent, then stir in the garlic and cook for a further minute.
  7. Add all the honey and black pepper sauce ingredients into the wok and cook for about 1 to 2 minutes or until the sauce becomes thick and syrupy.
