Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Thai Beef Meatballs With Rice Noodles

Boil a kettle

Peel the ginger (scrape the skin off with a teaspoon) and grate or chop finely

Cut the coriander stems from their leaves and chop the stems and the leaves finely, keeping them separate 

2 Thai Beef Meatballs With Rice Noodles

Add the beef mince, chopped ginger, coriander stems, fish sauce and half the red curry paste in a mixing bowl

Mix thoroughly until everything is fully combined (use clean hands!)

Divide the mixture into 6 [12] and shape into balls

Refrigerate until later 

Tip: chilling the meatballs helps them hold their shape when cooking 

3 Thai Beef Meatballs With Rice Noodles

Meanwhile, add the Thai rice noodles to a pot of salted boiled water (enough to cover them) on a high heat

Boil for 4-6 min, or until they're cooked through but with a slight bite

Once cooked, drain and rinse them briefly under cold water, shaking off the excess water before returning them to the pot

4 Thai Beef Meatballs With Rice Noodles

Meanwhile, cut the lime[s] in half 

Combine the toasted sesame oil, 1 tsp [2 tsp] sugar, lime juice and remaining red curry paste and mix together thoroughly - this is your Thai dressing

Chop or crush the roasted peanuts coarsely

Trim, then slice the spring onion[s] finely 

5 Thai Beef Meatballs With Rice Noodles

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a matching lid, with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a high heat 

Once hot, add the chilled meatballs and cook them for 4 min, or until they've browned 

Tip: use tongs to turn them regularly for even cooking

6 Thai Beef Meatballs With Rice Noodles

Once browned, cover with a lid, reduce the heat to medium-low and cook for a further 5-8 min, or until the meatballs have cooked through

 

7 Thai Beef Meatballs With Rice Noodles

Meanwhile, return the drained Thai rice noodles to a medium heat 

Add the Thai dressing and cook the noodles for 1 min or until they've warmed through

Once warmed, remove them from the heat and stir in the chopped spring onion, coriander leaves and roasted peanuts
