Gluten free minced beef parcels

Published 16 November, 2006

Here's a tasty and fancy little recipe we whip up from time to time. Minced beef parcels - gluten free naturally - wrapped in cabbage. And usually dipped in some of the Gluten Free Food Wifie's nasty, nasty gluten free chilli sauce.

Gluten free minced beef parcels

1 savoy cabbage
2 cloves garlic peeled
1 thumb-sized piece fresh ginger
Bunch spring onions (scallions)
Handful fresh coriander
1 fresh red chilli
2 tsp fish sauce
1 lb (0.5 kg) minced beef
1 small tin water chestnuts (couple of handfuls)
Zest and juice of 1 lime
1 tsp sesame oil
Olive oil
Gluten free soy sauce (tamari)

Soften the cabbage leaves in boining water for 2 minutes. Cool.

Blend in a food processor the ginger, garlic, coriander, spring onions, chilli and fish sauce. Add beef, water chestnuts, lime zest and juice and sesame oil. Pulse until chopped and mixed but not smooth.

Put a heaped desertspoon of mix onto the centre of each cabbage leaf, fold up the sides and roll. Place the parcels in a steamer. Wedge them in so they don't unwrap. Steam for 5-6 minutes then lift out a larger one and cut in half to check it is cooked.

Get yourself some outrageously hot gluten free chilli sauce, dip them in and start munching.
