Recipe type: Chicken & Pork
Serves: 4 adults
  • 500g mince (pork or chicken is best but we sometimes use beef)
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2cm piece of ginger
  • 50g (1/4 cup) peanuts
  • 2 celery stalks
  • Can water chestnuts. Drained (the ones I buy are 227g)
  • 1 Iceberg lettuce
  • 30g oyster sauce
  • 15g soy sauce
  • 1 cup bean sprouts
  • 2 carrots, peeled, cut into chunks
  • 100g mushrooms roughly chopped
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  1. Place the peanuts in the Thermomix bowl and dry roast, Varoma, 5 minutes, Spoon Soft. Once cooked chop 3-5 seconds, speed 7. Place to one side.
  2. While the peanuts are cooking break the lettuce into leaves, wash, pat dry and put in the fridge.
  3. Place carrots, celery and water chestnuts into bowl and chop 3-5 seconds, speed 7. Remove from bowl and set aside. Don’t overprocess them - they need to be a bit chunky. NOTE: If you prefer your water chestnuts as larger pieces leave them out of this step and chop roughly by hand to add in later.
  4. Put onion, garlic and ginger into bowl (no need to rinse in between) and chop 7 seconds, speed 7. After chopping sauté with olive oil at 100 degrees, 2 minutes, Reverse, Spoon Soft.
  5. Add mince to onion mix and cook Varoma, 10 minutes, Reverse, Spoon Soft.
  6. Add sauces and carrot/celery mix. Cook Varoma, 5 minutes, Reverse, Spoon Soft.
  7. Add sesame oil, bean shoots and mushrooms (and water chestnuts if you omitted them at step 3) cook Varoma, 3 minutes, Reverse, Spoon Soft.
