500g minced beef
juice 1 lime
2 lime leaf, finely shredded

Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Fry the ginger, garlic and chillies for 1 min. Add the mince, then cook on a high heat until golden brown, breaking it up with a wooden spoon as you go.  Add the lime juice and shredded lime leaves, then cook everything down until sticky.
