  • 500g Lamb mince (I used 10% fat lamb mince)
  • 6 chestnut mushrooms sliced
  • 1 carrot diced
  • 1 red chilli sliced
  • 1 inch fresh ginger grated
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp clear honey
  • 2 tsp Chinese 5 spice
  • 2 spring onions sliced
  • 2 little gem lettuces
  • 2 tbsp oil of your choice to cook with
  • peanuts and more sliced chilli to garnish (optional)
  1. Heat a large frying pan or wok and add the oil. When warm, begin to cook the lamb mince with the mushrooms and diced carrot for a few minutes.

  2. Next, add the chilli, garlic, and ginger and cook for a further 5 minutes.  Stir in the soy sauce, honey, and Chinese 5 spice. Cook until the lamb mince is completely cooked through. 

  3. Before serving stir through the sliced spring onions.  Separate the little gem lettuce leaves and place the cooked lamb mince inside.  Garnish with peanuts and more sliced chilli if preferred.
