Ingredients
  • 1 head radicchio or iceberg lettuce

  • 3 tablespoons peanut oil
  • 1/4 cup plum wine or port wine
  • 1 red bell pepper, finely chopped
  • Mint leaves, for garnish
Directions
  • Select 4 to 6 outer radicchio leaves that form a natural cup and set aside. Cut the remaining radicchio head into strips, you should have about 1 1/2 cups.

  • Mix the lamb with the onion, garlic, ginger, chili flakes, hoisin sauce and salt and pepper, to taste. Heat a wok or large skillet over high heat. When really hot, add the peanut oil, and stir-fry the lamb until it is cooked. Add the plum wine and red bell pepper, and cook for another minute or two. Adjust seasoning, if necessary.

  • Fill radicchio cups equally with radicchio strips. Spoon the lamb mixture into the cups and garnish with fresh mint leaves.
