Spicy chilli beef served wrapped in gem lettuce with a lovely dipping sauce.

Gem lettuce with spicy dipping sauce

A perfect amount of spiciness in the beef and the dipping sauce has a delicious sweetness to it.

Top Tip!

If you do make these, be sure not to add the chopped coriander to the sauce until you are about to serve or it will go horrid and black looking.

You can buy toasted sesame oil over at Amazon or you'll find it in any good supermarket.
