These Vietnamese Beef Kebabs are served wrapped in soft lettuce leaves with some side seasonings and hot sauce. They are from ” Madhur Jaffrey’s Ultimate Curry Bible”.
Combine all the ingredients for the kebabs and mix well. Divide into sixteen balls and then flatten each ball into a small hamburger like patty. Cover and refrigerate if not using straight away.
Gather and arrange all the side seasonings on your dining table.
Just before serving put a cast iron frying pan or griddle on a medium high heat. When the pan is hot brush lightly with oil. Place as many patties as will fit without crowding on the pan.Cook until one side is browned, then turn and brown the other side. You can serve quite rare or cook until done to your liking, lowering the heat if necessary. Remove from the heat and repeat with remaining patties.
Serve hot wrapped with some side seasonings in the lettuce leaves and dipped into the seasoned sauce.
