Serves: 4
Preparation: 20 minutes + marinading time
Cooking: 10 minutes

200g of minced and marinated lamb leg
Red and green butter lettuce to wrap (just pick and wash and keep the big leaves for san choi. save the hearts for a salad)
1/2 onion diced
1/2 zuchinni diced
1 king brown mushroom diced
1 tbsp diced water chestnut
2 tbsp lamb sauce

Lamb marinade:
50g garlic
250g fermented tofu
60g knorr liquid seasoning
125ml Shaoxing wine
12g bicarb

Mongolian lamb sauce:
500g hoi sin sauce
250g ground bean sauce
250ml water
60g sugar

For the lamb marinade, blend ingredients until smooth and marinate lamb leg mince overnight.
For the Mongolian lamb sauce, stir ingredients together until smooth. This sauce will last ages in the fridge if you want to make a big batch.
When ready to serve, stir fry the marinated lamb in a saute pan or wok. When it's half cooked add all veggies and stir fry on high heat.
Add the sauce and make sure its all coated. Too much will make it salty. Serve it up and cover with toasted sesame seeds.
