How to make San Choy Bow

To start in a large pan, fry on a high heat the Eschallot white ends and garlic in some peanut oil with a sprinkling of salt for a couple of minutes. Then add your mince and brown. Next step is to throw in the grated carrots, water chestnuts, oyster sauce, sweet thick soy and sesame oil. Stir and bring to a simmer. Allow to bubble for a couple of minutes until the sauce seems to thicken and look syrupy. Taste for seasoning. Then toss through your green eschallot tops. Your ready to go. All you have to do now is put a big spoonful into a lettuce cup, roll it up and munch your brains out. This is seriously good stuff. Enjoy :)

    Hey! My mum and I found your recipe and we cooked it tonight -> YUM! It was a great success. We didn't have sesame oil on hand but that was ok. The look of the green eschallots is really effective. Thanks heaps for sharing!
