This is an all time favourite for everyone to enjoy. This will make 4 or so portions so great for 2 people. Just double the amounts for more people!

You will need:

  • 250g chicken mince (you can also use pork or turkey mince!)
  • 4 Iceberg lettuce cups
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • Teaspoon of chopped ginger
  • 4 Spring onions (shallots)
  • ½ cup of frozen or fresh Peas
  • ½ cup of chopped mushrooms
  • 1 small tin of Corn (or chopped baby corn)
  • 5 chopped green beans
  • Table spoon Ketchup Manis (sweet soy)
  • Table spoon Light soy sauce
  • 1 small chopped red chilli (optional for those chilli lovers)
  • 1 table spoon olive oil
  • Splash of sesame oil (optional)

Make sure all ingredients are chopped up into small pieces and ready to go before you start heating the pan.  Place the oil in fry pan (wok if you have one) and heat for a minute before adding the garlic, ginger and spring onions (and chilli if you choose needs to go in here).  Cook for a minute or so then add the chicken mince and cook constantly stirring and mixing. Once the mince has cooked through then add in all the chopped vegetables and all the sauces and stir for a few minutes until the sauces has been well mixed through.  Now simply take a few big spoons and put inside the iceberg lettuce cups. Fold the end over and roll in the sides and see how much you can eat without spilling any on the plate!
