lemongrass beef

lemongrass beef

I made this the night before and served it as lunch. It’s fresh and super easy.


2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1 lemongrass stalk, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, crushed
400g beef mince
2 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoons caster (superfine) sugar
2 teaspoons fish sauce
1 small red chilli, chopped
1 baby cos (romaine) lettuce, leaves separated
¼ cup coriander leaves
lime wedges, to serve

Heat the oil in a medium frying pan over high heat. Add the lemongrass, garlic and beef and cook for 5–8 minutes or until browned, breaking up any lumps with a wooden spoon. Add the lime juice, sugar, fish sauce and chilli and cook for a further minute. Fill lettuce leaves with mince and top with coriander. Serve with lime wedges. Serves 2.

Tip: You can turn this snack into a more substantial meal by serving with cooked rice noodles or steamed rice.
