- In a saucepan, cover brown rice with 3/4 cup water and add coconut milk. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer gently for 25 minutes, or until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed.
- Preheat oven to 200°C. Combine curry and chilli pastes with a little hot water to thin slightly. Spray a pan with oil and place over a high heat. Add steak and cook for 1 minute each side until browned. Remove from heat and spread steak with half the curry paste mixture. Place pan in oven for 5-10 minutes, until steak is cooked to your liking. Or, if you don’t have an ovenproof pan, place steaks in a baking dish. Remove steak from oven and rest for 5 minutes.
- While steak is resting, place the steak pan over a medium-high heat. Spray again with oil and add garlic, spring onion and ginger. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add courgettes and Brussels sprouts and cook, stirring, for 3 minutes. Add remaining curry paste mixture and stir to combine. Continue cooking for 1 minute then add 1/4 cup water. Add spinach and cook until wilted.
- Divide veges and rice between two plates. Slice steak thinly and serve.
