Pork mince works equally well in this dish. Experiment with adding other vegetables into the mixture like spring onions or chopped pak choi Ė this will add different textures to your dish.


  1. In a wok or frying pan, heat the oil and fry the garlic and chillies, stirring well, until the garlic begins to brown.
  2. Add the minced beef and stir fry over a high heat, breaking apart the meat and mixing in the garlic and chilli.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients to the pan and continue to stir fry until the beef is cooked through. Arrange over the plated lettuce leaves and garnish with chopped peanuts.
