Stir-fry lamb with chilli & mint


2 tbs peanut oil
400 grams lean lamb; cut into strips
1 clove garlic; chopped
1 tbsp fresh red chilli; finely chopped
2 tbsp oyster sauce
2 tbsp fish sauce
1 tsp sugar
4 tbsp mint leaves; plus extra to garnish, finely chopped
1 jasmine rice, Steamed; to serve

Original recipe makes 2 Servings



1. Heat the oil in a wok over high heat. Add the lamb and stir-fry for about 1-2 minutes until almost cooked. (You may need to cook the lamb in 2 batches so as not to overcrowd the wok.) Add the garlic, chilli, oyster and fish sauces and sugar. Stir-fry for a further 1-2 minutes.

2. Taste to check the seasoning balance. (Don't be afraid to add more chilli, sugar or sauces, to taste.)

3. When the lamb is cooked through and tender, stir in the mint leaves. Remove from the heat and serve with the steamed jasmine rice, garnished with extra mint.

Very Good. I'd start with a little less fish sauce if you're not accustomed to very salty dishes.

Yum! Works really well with a simple Greek salad on the side or even mixed into the final dish. It works well with the lamb and mint, and turns it from a stir-fry into a warm summer salad!

Simple but Very Tasty. Not spicy hot despite the chili but refreshingly minty!

I substituted fresh basil for the mint, and like cdsheaffer, used asian chili paste instead of the chilis. I also used brown sugar instead of sugar. It was truly delicious. I haven't done a lot of cooking with fish sauce, and I loved how it brought all the other flavors together.

Delicious - I used Chinese Chili Garlic Saude instead of chopped chilis.
