Easy to make, doubled the recipe and kept the same cooking time. I did not break up the mince enough at the beginning, but I did before serving. Added some ‘Wok-ready stir fry veges’ in a packet, from vegetable and fruit section of Drakes, about 3 cups worth. It was delicious with white rice, and filling. Not particularly spicy. But very yummy.

What a delish dish!
We changed the meat to 1.5kg PORK mince instead of beef and doubled everything else (except the water which we left out entirely)
In the final 45mins we added fine shredded stir fry mix (similar to a dry slaw mix) then served it with Singapore noodles
Lovely filling meal with the beautiful lemongrass undertones (we used the tube paste kind)
I’d possible increase the peanut butter a little next time would be the only thing I’d change
Thanks for a great recipe Tania!
Did not disappoint 🙂

Made this (added chopped chillies). Great flavour. Because of consistency served in lettuce cups with chopped nuts and spring onions. None left. Definitely a keeper.

Made this for my family of 2 adults and 2 kids. Was just enough for us. We all enjoyed it. I left out the lemongrass and added Thai frozen vegetables. Served with rice noodles, but kids asked for rice next time. Will make again!!

We’ve made this twice & will make it again & again. We got lemongrass powder at our local international grocery store!!
