Ingredients

  • 1 tsp vegetable oil
  • 175g beef steak, cut into thin strips
  • 1 red pepper , deseeded and thinly sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves , thinly sliced
  • 2cm piece fresh root ginger , thinly sliced and cut into matchsticks
  • 1 tbsp sesame seed
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 Baby Gem lettuces
  • 1 tsp sesame oil

Method

  • STEP 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.

  • STEP 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.
