This dish is perfect for parties. Instead of beef, you could use chicken or turkey mince. Alternatively, as a vegetarian option, you could use mushrooms.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
150g dried rice vermicelli noodles, cooked according to the packet instructions
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 tablespoon ginger paste
2 tablespoons lemongrass paste
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 long red chilli, deseeded and chopped
400g beef mince
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons fish sauce
1 lemon, juiced
1/2 small bunch fresh mint, leaves picked
1/2 small bunch fresh coriander, leaves picked
4 little gem lettuce, leaves separated
lime wedges, to serve

Method

  1. Heat the oil over a medium heat in a 20 cm frying pan. Add the ginger, lemongrass, garlic and chilli and cook for 4–5 minutes or until fragrant.
  2. Add the beef mince to the pan and increase the heat to high. Stir-fry, breaking up with a wooden spoon, for 5–6 minutes or until browned. Add the honey and fish sauce. Stir-fry for 4–5 minutes or until the beef mixture is golden and cooked. Stir in the lemon juice, mint and coriander.
  3. Divide the beef mixture among the lettuce cups. Top with the noodles and serve with lime wedges.
