Thai Style Beef Patty

I was in the mood for Thai food yesterday. Just got back to Melbourne from Ballarat and was thinking of what to cook for dinner. Kinda miss having Thai food, haven't had it for a while so I decided to cook Thai basil mince beef and this beef patty. Will post the recipe for basil mince beef tomorrow.

Just for your information, I have just started my herb garden. I actually grow them in pots. Really looking forward for it to grow. Will keep you posted on the progress. Nothing seen yet so far as I just sow the seeds last week. Hopefully will start to see something in the next few weeks.

Thai Style Beef Patty

  • 400 grams mince beef ( you can use mince pork or chicken as well, even fish paste will be nice)
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped and stir fried till soft and fragrant. I always stir fry my garlic to cook it a little bit before mixing them into patties / meat balls mixture because I don't like the raw taste of garlic. So by doing this you will avoid the raw taste from garlic when you cook the patties.
  • 2 shallots, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped spring onion
  • 10 green beans, cut to 3-4mm pieces
  • 1 stalk lemongrass, white bottom part only - finely chopped
  • 3 kaffir lime leaves, finely chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoon tapioca starch
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 2 tablespoons ABC kecap manis / thick soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon salt

1. Mix all the ingredients for patty together with seasoning. You can add a bit more tapioca starch if the mixture is too watery.
2. Form mince beef mixture into small patties of 10-12 cm diameter. You should be able to make around 10-12 patties

3. Pan fry on frying pan until cooked through or you can also use your grill pan if you want.

I made a side dipping sauce for this, but you can omit this. It's actually really nice with thai chilli sauce.

Dipping sauce:
  • 1/4 cup ground peanut
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1.5 tablespoons lemon/lime juice
Mix all the ingredients together and serve with beef patties.

Hope you enjoy it. Bon Appetite. Basil mince beef recipe coming tomorrow.
