This was born of leftover filling from Spinners beautiful Spicy Roast Chicken Spicy Roast Chicken that we ate last night. Not liking to waste the yummy filling, this is what I came up with. We ate it as an appetiser tonight, but it would be good as part of an Asian style banquet.
- 1 large iceberg lettuce
- 1 tablespoon peanut oil
- 1 onion, chopped
- 250 g pork mince
- 1 small red chile, chopped
- 1 tablespoon of fresh mint, chopped
- 2 tablespoons fresh coriander leaves, chopped
- 1⁄2 small carrot, grated
- 1⁄2 cup bean sprouts
- 1⁄2 cup water chestnut, chopped
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
- 1 tablespoon fish sauce
- Core the lettuce, and carefully seperate the leaves to form cups.
- Wash and dry gently and store in the fridge in a plastic bag to crisp while you make the filling.
- FILLING Heat the oil in a wok or frying pan, and cook the onion until softened-about 5 minutes, then add the mince and chilli and cook until the colour changes-a further 10 minutes.
- Add the remaining ingredients and toss for another couple of minutes to heat through.
- Serve in the lettuce cups (rolling them up like rice paper rolls) with a little extra chopped fresh coriander and oystersauce if you wish.
