Aussie Style Lettuce Wraps

 What you need:

1 head iceberg lettuce
2 tablespoons oyster sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon cornflour
3 small red chilli's finely sliced ( I leave the seeds in, I like them HOT)
1 egg, beaten
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 garlic cloves, finely sliced
2 cm ginger julienne (1 piece)
400 g ground lean mince
1/2 capsicum, diced finely
1/2 cup frozen corn kernels, cooked
1/2 carrot, grated
hoisin sauce
4 shallots, finely sliced 

What to do:

1. Cut whole leaves from the lettuce head to form cups (trim if needed).
2. In a bowl, mix together oyster sauce, soy sauce, sesame oil, cornflour, chilli and egg, set aside.
3. Heat oil in large frying pan over high heat, add ginger and garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add mince and cook, stirring to break up any clumps, until brown and cooked. Drain off any liquid, and wipe out the pan.
4. Return pan to heat and add capsicum, carrot and cook for 4 minutes.Add mince back in and shallots Stir in the oyster sauce mixture and cook for 10 minutes or until sauce has thickened. (this is where I usually taste and add more chilli and any of the sauces you think it might need) Leave the mixture to cool slightly.
5. Put mince mix in middle of table, along hoisin sauce and sesame seeds or slithered almonds and let everyone help themselves to fill their lettuce leaf cups.
