Vegan Crispy Ginger ‘Beef’

There’s some really good vegan plant based meat replacements. I wanted to do something a bit different as we often make spaghetti bolognese or lasagne & my boys have never like shepherds pie – in fact my son labelled my attempt as ‘Shepherds Cry!’

This was a nice alternative; crispy, sweet & savoury dish like a Chinese takeaway. Just Marinade the plant beef with the ginger & spices before frying.

  • 200 g Plant based Minced Beef (there are lots of brands for this particular one we used Viv era)
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon dry chilli flakes (or to taste)
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons Chinese 5 spice
  • Tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 x Spring onion chopped
  • 200 G – of your preferred Fresh Veg chopped (Peppers, Beansprouts, Baby Corn , carrots are nice )
  • Fresh Coriander
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Rice or noodles to serve


    Mix the garlic, ginger, chilli flakes, Chinese five spice, soy sauce & lime with the plant beef and refrigerate for at least an hour.
    Heat the vegetable oil in a wok or large frying pan.
    Add the beef mixture and fry, stirring regularly until it gets very brown and crispy.
    Add the spring onions & stir fry for a minute.
    Add the fresh vegetables & fry for 3/4 minutes. Stir fry vegetables
Stir fry vegetables
  • You may need to add some more tablespoons of soy sauce and water (it is meant to be crispy & not much sauce but you don’t want the mixture to be too dry.
    Add a sprinkle of the coriander.

Serve with noodles or steamed rice. This would also be nice sprinkled over a salad.
