Beef Patties With Thai-Style Sauce

Beef Patties With Thai-Style Sauce created by Zurie

I found the original recipe in a recipe booklet published by a supermarket chain. It's very basic and a good midweek main meal. I changed the recipe to my taste, as the original was too bland. Once you have the few ingredients at hand it's easy to make. It's also a good recipe to make ahead, as the flavours will definitely improve over a day or so. The original recipe suggested ground ostrich meat or chicken as a good alternative to beef. Most of our shops sell dried breadcrumbs, which is what I used.

ingredients

  • Patties

  • 18 ounces ground beef (500 g. Or sub with ground chicken or ostrich)
  • 12 cup spring onion, chopped (green onions)
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1 hot pepper, small, finely chopped (leave out seeds for a milder taste)
  • 3 tablespoons breadcrumbs, dried
  • 1 teaspoon salt (level)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons oil (for frying)
  • Sauce

  • 2 tablespoons oil (for frying, or less)
  • 12 cup spring onion, chopped (green onions)
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon ginger, fresh, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon hot pepper, finely chopped (use less (or more)
  • 1 cup coconut milk (250 ml)
  • 3 ounces peanuts, crushed (100g, or use cashews, roasted)
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce (30 ml)
  • 1 teaspoon sugar

directions

  • For the patties, start with the ground meat, then mix in the rest of the ingredients.
  • Turn round and round until well mixed. If the mixture is too dry (it should be just right) add a teaspoon or so of milk or water.
  • Form fairly small patties (you'll have 7 or 8), and fry in a little oil in a pan, over medium-to-low heat, turning once, until brown on both sides. Remove to an oven dish and keep pan on the hob.
  • For the sauce, add oil to the same pan (there won't be enough left over).
  • Add the spring onions, garlic, ginger, cumin and pepper to the hot oil, and stir briskly for about half a minute, just to bring out the flavour.
  • Add the coconut milk, stir in the soy sauce and sugar, and add the nuts of your choice.
  • Let it simmer briskly, while stirring, for a short while -- it should thicken.
  • Ladle the sauce over the patties, OR serve the sauce separately.
  • Serve with rice (brown basmati is nice) and an Asian-type green such as chopped, steamed pak choy or tatsai or Chinese cabbage, seasoned with soy sauce instead of salt.

    I'll cut the salt in half next time I make it.
