Step 1

Preparation: Preheat the oven to 180°C. Prepare all ingredients as indicated above. Boil the kettle.

Step 2

Lime: Using the fine side of a box grater, grate the peel of the lime to create lime zest. Then cut in half and juice. Set aside.

Step 3

Onion: Peel the onion, then cut in in half. SLICE HALF the onion thinly and CHOP the other HALF finely.

Step 4

Sweetcorn: Place a pot on a medium-high heat, fill it with the boiling water (about an inch), add the sweet corn and cover with the lid. Let it cook for 3 minutes, then turn the corn around and cook for another 3-5 minutes until bright yellow and cooked.

Step 5

Garlic & lime butter: Place a small pot on a medium heat and gently melt the butter (it should take about 30 seconds). Add the garlic, chilli (optional) and lime zest with a little bit of salt. Turn off the heat and set aside.

Step 6

Salad: Mix together the cabbage, carrot, HALF the coriander and the SLICED onion. Season with the lime juice, salt and pepper to taste and add a drizzle of sesame oil.

Step 7

Patty: Mix together the mince, the CHOPPED onion, hoisin sauce, Asian Spice Mix, ground ginger and the REST of the coriander. Season with salt and pepper. Use your hands to shape the mixture into a patty. Place a large frying pan on a medium-high heat. Add a drizzle of olive oil and when hot, add the patty. It should sizzle when it hits the pan (if the pan is hot enough). Cook the patty for about 6-8 minutes per side. Make sure the patty is nicely browned and cooked through.

Step 8

Bun: Place the bun on a baking tray and bake it in the oven for 3-4 minutes until brown and crusty.

Step 9

Serve the toasted bun topped with the carrot and cabbage salad, the beef patty and sriracha mayo. Brush the sweetcorn with the garlic and lime butter and serve on the side.
