Recipe allows for the use of the Meater+ but is not required.

Read all instructions first as this is a layered cooking recipe and can be completed in under 30 mins. Prepare vegetables and mix marinade once rice is steaming.

It is preferable to sit a tray in the varoma tray to contain the sauce eg the stainless steel tray from the MixShop is perfect.

Sit Asian greens on a trivet or crossed forkes in the varoma dish to allow steam to penetrate through the holes.
