Cook rice according to directions on package. Steam cabbage and set aside. Heat oil in a high sided skillet (or wok). Add curry paste and stir fry it a bit. Add your beef and stir fry it as well. Add in sugar, garlic, pepper, lime juice, and fish sauce. Stir to combine and remove the meat when everything is heated through. Turn off the heat to the pan. Put your steamed cabbage in the pan and swirl it around, tossing to coat it in the curry spices. To serve, place meat over a bed of steamed cabbage and jasmine rice. Enjoy!
