    Nice flavour, I think the recipe should be edited at the end of step 1 to say remove from bowl and set aside. I also added carrot. Overall I would make it again,

    Submitted by Mandy2304 on 7. January 2017 - 18:03.

    Just finishing this off now. I added the seasoning mix that comes with pork mince at woollies too. We sprinkle fresh shallots on ours when we have it normally, so I've left that out of the cooking process. I also use vermicelli noodles when ever I make this, so I've done that too. It's very tasty thanks, just a little too wet so needed to reduce on stove too 😊 Hoping my 8yr old likes it... she loves it when I've cooked normally, but the little critic has an issue with the thermo lol( only got it for Xmas)

    Thank you, we all loved it! i added 1 carrot and 1/2 a zucchini (chopped after I did the onion + stage) put aside and added with pork mince. Didn't add sesame oil. Used 3 tbsp coconut amino sauce instead of the other sauces. Squeezed 1/2 lime instead of wine. Tasted amazing. Thank you again

    Delicious! I added around a tbs of kecap manis and would probably add a couple of carrots and maybe some corn or capsicum next time to boost the veggie ratio.

    Submitted by elmo_306 on 6. August 2016 - 20:17.

    This is a quick and easy recipe.  Great idea for week nights when you need something quick and easy to whip up.  I will definitely make again but next time I think I might add some veggies (maybe carrot).  It just needed something a little extra.

    A1! Interestingly I forgot to put in the sesame oil so added it before we had our second and didn't like it as much. Will leave it out next time. Delicious!

    Submitted by keldmil on 29. March 2016 - 14:24.

    LOVE this recipe - even my kids love it! When I buy the pork mince from Woolies, it comes with a little sachet of san choy bow seasoning and I throw that in at the same times as the mince for an extra-robust flavour.

    DELISH - thanks!

    Submitted by StephT1 on 2. February 2016 - 20:36.

    Yum! Call me silly, but didn't realise I had to set the sesame seeds aside once roasted and wasn't sure when to add the sesame oil so did that when I added the water chestnuts. It was still delicious!! Thank you - will make it again (maybe slightly differently)!

    This was delicious! I found the sesame seeds didn't toast that well in the tmx so I finished them off in the pan. But apart from that recipe was yummy! am looking forward to leftovers today, maybe even on toast or in some shortcrust pastry as a pastie. Hmmm! tmrc_emoticons.)

    Better than any Chinese restaurant that I have ever visited.  Delcious, thank you.  I added the sesame oil with the water chestnuts so not certain if this was correct but tasted fantastic.

    Submitted by jomaica on 24. October 2015 - 12:44.

    My family loved this!! I made double the size so I had to cook the mince a bit longer.

    Also, at the end I cooked it on the stove top for a while to reduce the liquid. I will definitely cook it again. tmrc_emoticons.)

    SAN CHOY BAU = YUM!

    Thanks for sharing your recipe. I made it last night. As I like chili I sprinkled some fresh pieces on top with some spring onion and drizzled on a little lime juice. I did omit the bean shoots. 

    The end result was very tasty with a lovely combination of flavours.

    Submitted by mel_b on 28. April 2015 - 21:35.

    Delicious!! It had amazing flavours & loved the mix of textures with the mince & water chestnuts. The kids & hubby LOVED it! Omitted chilli in the recipe (had it chopped on the side afterwards for the adults) for the kids tastes. Didn't have green onion so left out & forgot to add the julienned cucumber/bean sprouts ... Next time! Cut the water chestnuts finely & added the sesame oil with the other sauces. Thank you for sharing this gem, will make this one again for sure.

  • This was a great meal,

    Submitted by Laura.S on 12. March 2015 - 20:36.

    This was a great meal, enjoyed by the whole family.  I didn't add much chilli and I bulked it up with some grated zucchini and carrot (added when the mince went into the bowl). I also added chopped coriander with the shallots.  I added the sesame oil in the step with the sauces (not sure if this is correct though).  Will definitely be appearing on our meal plan on a regular basis!

    Submitted by Cdw on 18. January 2015 - 20:16.

    This was delicious! I used chicken thigh and minced Speed 10 for 4-5 seconds. I also added grated carrot at the same time as the meat was cooked. I will add zucchini as well next time! I put in sesame oil at the same time as I added peanut oil, and also a little dash extra with all the sauces! Yummo

    I've made this heaps now but still pan frying (not a massive fan of meat in the thermie). But.......I gave it a go........it does lose a little flavour but I cooked it a little longer and added a couple of tbsp of home made sweet chilli and some coriander with the shallots.  I won't be pan frying again. Thank you.....seriously.........thank you!!

    Very nice meal. A little bit of feedback for the recipe - direction to set aside the sesame seeds would be good, and it's not mentioned when to add the sesame oil.
