Step by Step Instructions

Step 1: Prepare Everything

Halve, peel and thinly slice the onion. Halve the pepper and discard the core and seeds.

Slice into thin strips. Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).

Step 2: Cook the Mince

Heat a drizzle of oil in a frying pan over high heat. When hot, add the beef mince. Cook until browned, breaking up with a spoon as it cooks, 2-3 mins.

Stir the onion and pepper into the beef and continue cooking for another 4-5 mins.

Step 3: Pickle the Cucumber

Meanwhile, trim the ends from the cucumber, halve lengthways and thinly slice.

Pop into a bowl and pour on the rice vinegar, a pinch of salt and the sugar (see ingredients for amount).Toss to coat and keep to one side.

Step 4: Make the Sriracha Mayo

Next, mix half of the sriracha with the mayonnaise in a small bowl.

Step 5: Mix it Together

When the onions and peppers are softened and the beef is cooked through, add the garlic and ginger puree to the pan.

IMPORTANT: The beef is cooked when no longer pink in the middle. b) Stir and cook until fragrant, 1 minute.

Stir in the soy sauce, ketjap manis, honey and remaining sriracha. Bring to a bubble and remove form the heat. Get ready to serve.

Step 6: Finish and Serve the Dish

Lay out 3 tacos per person on each plate. Spread on the mayo with the back of a spoon. Top with the beef mixture and then a few slices of cucumber.

Serve any remaining cucumber alongside. Fold and devour!
