Chilli Beef Patties with Lime Noodle Salad

Chilli Beef Patties with Lime Noodle Salad. An Asian twist on the old family-favourite spaghetti and meatballs, these beef mince patties are infused with ginger, mint and chili jam and pack a punch in flavour.


Serves 4

4 tbsp fish sauce

5 tbsp lime juice

3 tbsp palm sugar

2 bird’s-eye chillies, sliced

1 cup mint leaves

500g beef mince

2 tbsp chilli jam

2 tbsp fresh ginger, grated

1 tsp sea salt

vegetable oil

150g snow peas

200g rice noodles

250g cherry tomatoes, halved

1 small red onion, thinly sliced

1 To make dressing, place fish sauce, lime juice, palm sugar and chillies in a bowl and whisk until sugar dissolves.

2 Finely chop half the mint, then add mince, chilli jam, ginger and salt to a bowl. Mix well to combine.

3 Roll mixture into 20 small balls. Heat 1cm of oil in a large non-stick frying pan and cook 2-3 minutes on each side or until cooked through.

4 Slice snow peas lengthways and place into a bowl. Cover with boiling water for 1 minute, drain and plunge into ice-cold water. Drain and set aside.

5 Place rice noodles in a bowl and cover with boiling water until soft. Drain and run under cold water. Drain again.

6 Place noodles, tomatoes, snow peas and onion in a bowl. Pour dressing over noodles and toss to combine.

7 Divide noodle mixture among four serving bowls and top with meatballs and remaining mint.
