Thai Recipe : Spicy Minced Beef

This dish in Thai is called Laab Nua

Laab Nua, sometimes called Laab Issan, is a Thai version of steak tartare and is thought to have come from the Mongols, or Tartars as they were sometimes called, when the Thai lived in the Yunnan Valley region more that 1000 years ago.

Serves 4


  • 6 oz lean beef, minced or finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 large onion, finely sliced
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped scallions
  • 2 tbsp rice, dried fried and ground
  • 4 tbsp fresh mint leaves
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped fresh coriander stem and leaves
  • 1 tbsp finely sliced lemon grass
  • ½ tsp chili powder or finely chopped fresh chili

Fresh basil leaves, coriander leaves, mint leaves, scallion curls and chili flowers, lettuce leaves, snake beans or sliced cucumber (any combination)


  1. In a saucepan, braise beef in water using a wooden spoon to separate, until beef is medium-rare and still quite pink. Remove from heat. Combine beef with lemon juice, fish sauce, onion, scallions, ground rice, mint leaves, coriander, lemon grass and chili powder. Place in a mound on a bed of lettuce leaves and decorate with garnished of your choice.
