Reduce the heat slightly, add the remaining oil and fry the leeks until soft.

Add the broccoli and cook until just tender. Stir in the beef, season to taste and heat through.

Serve with noodles or rice.

Tip of the day

 
Baobab leaves
African cooks use leaves from the massive baobab tree to thicken their stews. Like okra, the leaves give the dish a congealing texture that's characteristic of West African stews. Okra will give a similar effect if you can't find baobab leaves.
