The lettuce cools down the chilli in the mince. A great way to enjoy mince without a starch.

Cooking: 10 min

30 ml (2 T) oil

500 g beef mince

3 garlic cloves, chopped

3 cm ginger, chopped

2 red chillies, sliced

15 ml (1 T) brown sugar

5 ml (1 t) fish sauce

gem lettuce, separated into leaves, and salad dressing to serve

1        Heat the oil in a frying pan over high heat and fry the mince for 5 minutes, stirring to break up the lumps.
