Stir-fry lamb with chilli & mint
"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."
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.

yvang6n3 4 months agoVery Good. I'd start with a little less fish sauce if you're not accustomed to very salty dishes.
caila 1 year agoYum! 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!

Wollongirl 3 years agoSimple but Very Tasty. Not spicy hot despite the chili but refreshingly minty!
