Ingredients

  • 1 tsp Oil
  • 500 g Beef mince
  • 2 tsp Garlic See notes
  • 2 tsp Ginger puree See notes
  • 200 g Green beans Trimmed and cut in half

For the sauce:

  • 1 tbsp Cornflour
  • 3 tbsp Soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp Oyster sauce
  • 2 tbsp Honey
  • 100 ml Water

To garnish:

  • Sesame seeds (optional)

Instructions

  1. Heat the oil in a large, deep saucepan over a medium high heat and add the mince, brown all over cooking for 5-7 minutes.

  2. Add the garlic, ginger and green beans and cook for a further 5 minutes.

  3. While this is cooking, make up the sauce by putting the cornflour in a jug or bowl and gradually mixing in the soy sauce (do this gradually so it doesn't go lumpy). Then add in the other ingredients and stir until smooth.

  4. Turn the heat up to high, pour in sauce and let it bubble for 2-3 minutes and coat everything.

  5. Serve over rice, sprinkled with sesame seeds.

Recipe Notes

Garlic & Ginger

I used prepared tubes for this to speed things up, but if you prefer to use fresh use 2 cloves of garlic crushed and about 1 inch of ginger finely chopped.
