Ingredients to serve 1

  • ½ x cucumber
  • 150g x beef mince
  • 1½ tbsp x soy sauce
  • 20g x ginger – peel & chop finely
  • 1 clove x garlic – peel, grate finely & chop
  • ½ x broccoli – cut into florets
  • ½ tbsp x sambal oelek
  • ½ tsp x sesame oil
  • ½ tbsp x apple cider vinegar
  • 5g x fresh coriander – chop leaves roughly
  • 10g x bean sprouts
  • ¼ x lime – cut into wedges
  • salt & pepper (from your pantry)
  • olive oil (from your pantry)


Step 1

Preparation: Prepare all ingredients as indicated above.

Step 2

Sliced cucumber: Cut the ends off the cucumber, slice in half lengthways and scrape out the seeds with a teaspoon. Then cut into halfmoons (½ cm).

Step 3

Patty: Mix the mince with the soy sauce, HALF the ginger and HALF the garlic. Season generously with salt and pepper and shape the mixture into a patty. Set aside.

Step 4

Broccoli: Place a pan on medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. When hot, add the broccoli and sauté with a little salt and pepper for 2-3 minutes until bright green and cooked, but with a slight bite. Remove and set aside to cool slightly.

Step 5

Salad: Mix together the sambal oelek, sesame oil, apple cider vinegar, coriander (reserving some for serving) the REST of the ginger and the REST of the garlic. Add the cucumber, broccoli and bean sprouts, season with salt and pepper and mix through.

Step 6

Patty: Add a drizzle of olive oil to the pan used for the broccoli, on medium-high heat. When hot, add the patty. It should sizzle when it hits the pan (if hot enough). Cook the patty for 4 to 6 minutes a side until nicely browned and cooked through.

Step 7

Serve the salad with the patty, sprinkled with fresh coriander and serve the lime wedges on the side.
