Method

  1. Heat oil in a large frying pan. When the pan is really hot, tip in the beef and pepper, then cook for a few mins until lightly browned and the beef is cooked through. Tip in the garlic, ginger and sesame seeds, then cook for 1-2 mins more, stirring often until they start to turn golden.
  2. Pour over the soy sauce and 2 tbsp water, let it bubble down a bit until it starts to look syrupy, then drizzle with the sesame oil. Separate the leaves from the lettuces and arrange on a plate. Spoon a little of the beef mixture into each leaf, drizzle with pan juices and serve warm.

Just ok. I thought my hubby and his friend would love it because it is very meaty, but there were leftovers... so I am not convinced. Also it is a bit awkward to eat, especially in Scandinavia where they eat pizza with a knife and fork!

My guests were impressed to be served something warm at a drinks party. This was very easy and makes a change from cheese and pineapple hedgehogs!
