Cook the rice according to the packet instructions.

Grate the garlic and ginger. Add to a bowl with soy sauce, teriyaki sauce, honey and half the chilli finely chopped. Thinly slice the other half, keep aside for when you plate up.

Thinly slice the onion. Heat some sesame oil in a wok. Stir-fry the onion and the broccoli for 3-4 minutes. Add the beef, cook until well browned. Add the cashews and the sauce. Stir-fry for a few minutes. Pop into a bowl and set aside.
