Don't overcomplicate things. Sometimes a simple summer salad is all you need.
100g rice vermicelli noodles
1 tsp coconut oil
1 stalk lemongrass, finely chopped
1 small shallot, diced
200g beef mince
1 tbsp lime juice
2 tsp tamari (or soy sauce)
1 tsp rice malt syrup
1 tsp mirin
Start by cooking noodles according to packet instructions.
Meanwhile, heat oil in a large wok over a medium-high heat. Add lemongrass and shallot and cook for 2 minutes.
Next, add beef and cook for 6-8 minutes, or until cooked through. Add lime, tamari, rice malt syrup and mirin. Cook for an additional minute then remove from the heat.
Transfer cooked noodles, lettuce and cucumber to a bowl and toss to combine.
Top with mince, peanuts, mint, fresh chilli and a wedge of lime, if you have any leftover.
