Handy Tips
To make this dish quicker, purchase pre-cooked sachets of rice and quinoa mix.


  1. Cook rice and quinoa mix according to packet instructions and allow to cool. (approx. 30 minutes) 
  2. Combine soy sauce, mirin, honey, sesame oil and lemon juice in a bowl.  Pour half of the dressing over the beef strips and marinate for 5-10 minutes (or as long as you can).  Set aside remaining dressing.  
  3. Combine the cream cheese and yoghurt in a bowl to make the cheat's labne and set aside.  Spoon rice evenly into serving bowls and top evenly with cucumber, beans and avocado.  Drizzle with reserved dressing.
  4. Heat a large non-stick pan and stir-fry meat until browned and cooked through.  Discard any excess marinade.  Spoon meat evenly over bowls and top with labne mixture, spring onions and black sesame seeds.
