2 stems lemon grass (white part only)
2 fresh green chillies
1 tbsp oil
500 g. lean minced pork
1/4 cup lime juice
2 tsp finely grated lime rind
2-6 tsp chilli sauce
Lettuce leaves, for serving
1/3 cup fresh coriander leaves
1/4 cup small fresh mint leaves
1 small red onion, very finely sliced
1/3 cup roasted peanuts, chopped
1/4 cup crisp fried garlic


Slice the white part of the lemon grass very finely and thin. Finely chop the green chillies

Heat oil in a wok or frying pan. Add lemon grass, chillies and pork mince to wok. Stir-fry, breaking up any lumps of mince as it cooks, over high heat for 6 minutes or until cooked through. Transfer to a bowl; allow to cool.

Add limejuice and rind, and the chilli sauce to cooled mince mixture. Arrange the lettuce leaves on a serving plate. Stir most of the coriander and mint leaves, onion, peanuts and fried garlic through the mince mixture. Distribute over the lettuce and sprinkle the rest of the leaves, onion, peanuts and garlic over the top.
