  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 scant tablespoon thai fish sauce (nam pla)
  • 4 spring onions (dark green bits removed, finely chopped)
  • zest and juice of 1 lime
  • 4 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 small head of cabbage


  • Heat the oil over medium heat. Add the chillies and cook for about a minute or until fragrant. Add the ground beef and saute, breaking up any clumps for about 3-4 minutes or until no pink remains.
  • Add the fish sauce and stir about another minute.
  • Remove from the heat and add the onions, zest and juice of the lime and about 1/2 of the cilantro.
  • Wash the cabbage, and select smallish, cupping leaves. Spoon the meat mixture into the cabbage cups and sprinkle with the remaining cilantro.
