A family favourite is made so easy and tasty using your Thermomix

San Choy Bau Thermomix Recipe


500g mince (pork or chicken is best but we sometimes use beef)

1 Tbsp sesame oil

1 onion

2 cloves garlic

2cm piece of ginger

50g (1/4 cup) peanuts

2 celery stalks

Can water chestnuts.Drained (the ones I buy are 227g)

1 Iceberg lettuce

30g oyster sauce

15g soy sauce

1 cup bean sprouts

2 carrots, peeled, cut into chunks

100g mushrooms roughly chopped


1. Place the peanuts in the Thermomix bowl and dry roast, Varoma, 5 minutes, Spoon Soft. Once cooked chop 3-5 seconds, speed 7. Place to one side.

2. While the peanuts are cooking break the lettuce into leaves, wash, pat dry and put in the fridge.

3. Place carrots, celery and water chestnuts into bowl and chop 3-5 seconds, speed 7. Remove from bowl and set aside. Don’t overprocess them - they need to be a bit chunky. NOTE: If you prefer your water chestnuts as larger pieces leave them out of this step and chop roughly by hand to add in later.

4. Put onion, garlic and ginger into bowl (no need to rinse in between) and chop 7 seconds, speed 7. After chopping sauté 100 degrees, 3 minutes, Reverse, Spoon Soft.

5. Add mince to onion mix and cook Varoma, 10 minutes, Reverse, Spoon Soft.

6. Add sauces and carrot/celery mix. Cook Varoma, 5 minutes, Reverse, Spoon Soft.

7. Add bean shoots and mushrooms (and water chestnuts if you omitted them at step 3) cook Varoma, 2 minutes, Reverse, Spoon Soft.

8. Put mixture into Thermoserver or serving bowl.

To serve, scoop a large spoonful of meat mixture into a lettuce cup and eat!



We also add fresh coriander, extra bean shoots and thinly sliced carrots to the top of the mix when eating. You can also add fresh chilli in step 4 if you like some heat. These are very messy but fun!

The kids love them - but be prepared with napkins!

If you have any leftover meat mix it tastes great in pies or jaffles.
