San Choy Bow

//San Choy Bow

I have been meaning to thermo-fy  this for awhile but never got around to it until recently. This is something I have only had a handful of times but has always been delicious, even for me who barely eats red meat. The sauce gives it a great flavour. The crisp lettuce and crunchy veggies make it a lighter meal. You can of course vary the veggies you use to suit your tastes.

The kiddies don’t like to eat these as lettuce cups so they have their mince on top of steamed jasmine rice and topped with the veggies. They love it.

The mince is something you can freeze and reheat for those nights you need a quick dinner. It doesn’t take too long to prepare veggies. You could have dinner on the table in less than 10 minutes.

Ingredients
  1. 1 onion, peeled and quartered
  2. 2 garlic cloves, peeled
  3. 10g oil, peanut or sesame works well in this dish
  4. 500g good quality beef or pork mince
  5. 45g soy sauce
  6. 50g oyster sauce
  7. 1/2 teaspoon of pepper
  8. 1-2 baby cos lettuce heads, leaves pulled apart
  9. 2 carrots, thinly sliced
  10. 100g bean sprouts
  11. 4 shallots/spring onions, thinly sliced on a diagonal
Instructions
  1. Place onion and garlic into bowl.
  2. Blitz on speed 7 for 5 seconds. Scrape down.
  3. Add oil.
  4. Cook at 100 degrees for 4 minutes, speed 2.
  5. Add mince in large clumps.
  6. Cook at 100 degrees, reverse, spoon soft, 5 minutes.
  7. Using your spatula, stir the meat around in the bowl to ensure even cooking. Break up any huge clumps of meat.
  8. Add pepper and sauces.
  9. Cook at 100 degrees, reverse, spoon soft, 7 minutes.
  10. I find 12 minutes in a hot tmx to be enough to cook the mince and stop it from turning to mush. If it is still slightly pink cook for a few minutes extra.
  11. Serve a tablespoon or two of mince in lettuce cups, top with vegetables and sliced shallots.
  12. Serve.
Notes
  1. Serve mince mixture over rice and top with sliced veggies if preferred.
