For the Crispy Chilli Beef, heat 1/2 tbsp of groundnut oil in a large pan and sauté garlic and ginger for 1-2 mins, stirring regularly, before adding beef mince. Cook beef mince until brown all over then stir in garlic granules, onion granules and Chinese five spice. Then, add red chillies, soy sauce and ketjap manis and stir until combined. Continue to fry beef on high heat until sauces are soaked up into beef mince. After a 3-4 more mins of stir frying beef mince, it should begin to brown and turn crispy, then remove from pan.
For the fried rice, heat remaining 1/2 tbsp of groundnut on medium-low heat, then add shallots. Fry for 4 mins, until soft, then add red pepper and continue to stir fry for 1-2 mins before adding long grain rice, along with soy sauce, sriracha, ketjap manis and Chinese five spice, then stir to combine and increase heat to high.
Stir fry rice for 4-5 mins, until moisture is cooked out of rice and begins to turn crispy. Add in 3/4 of Crispy Chilli Beef along with spring onions and pak choi and stir until combined. Once you are happy with your fried rice you are ready to serve. Add remaining Crispy Chilli Beef as a topping and garnish with coriander.
