Bang bang thai burgers, fries & spicy thai salsa

Bang bang thai burgers, fries & spicy thai salsa

One Saturday night my Mr suggested that we film the making of this recipe.

It was a great idea, but Saturday night is a workout session for us, so bearing in mind the children are in bed for 7pm, we had to workout and then start cooking, it was a busy night.

But i’m really delighted with the final dish and hope you will be too.

This is one of the many recipes I created when I followed the 90 Day Plan by The Body Coach. Simply use your plans ingredient amounts instead of those shown in the recipe. There are 220 Create Your Own (CYO) friendly recipes in my app and on this website.

Ingredients for 1 serving

218 g extra lean beef mince
46 g onions
116 g mushrooms
14 g Thai red curry paste
10 g fresh coriander
365 g new potatoes, hand cut into fries
1 lime, juice only
1-3 tbsp water
1 chilli, sliced, seeds or no seeds up to you!
6 g olive oil
13 ml sweet chilli sauce
149 g broccoli


  • Pre-heat your oven to 190°C fan/400°F  and line a baking sheet with non stick foil.
  • Chop the new potatoes into fries or wedges, and if you have an Actifry pop them in with your oil and set the timer for 25 minutes.
  • OR
  • If you don’t have one, line a baking sheet with non stick foil, add the potatoes and drizzle the oil over them and bake for 25 minutes before checking them.
  • Place the mushrooms onto a baking tray with a sprinkle of salt to help draw out the natural juices and bake them for around 10-15 minutes cooking time to soften and then take them out and set aside.
  • To make the salsa, take a mini food processor, add the coriander, sweet chilli sauce, the chilli and the juice of half a lime.
  • Give it a blitz and taste it.
  • Add half of the onion and give it a little blitz again.
  • It maybe the case that there isn’t much liquid, so start by adding 1-2 tablespoons of water gradually to slacken your salsa and add a little more lime juice if necessary – don’t forget to taste it!
  • Pour this into a small bowl for later.
  • Put half of your mince into the mini food processor along with the Thai curry paste and the remainder of your onion or spring onion and give it a blitz.
  • Put the remainder of your mince into a bowl, add your mince mixture and using your hands mix the two together.
  • Using wet hands start to make your burger patties and arrange them on a pre-lined baking sheet.
  • Repeat until all your mince mixture has been used.
  • Pop these in the oven to bake for around 20 minutes before checking them.
  • When they’re firm to the touch they’re ready.
  • Steam your broccoli to your liking and check your fries.
  • Pop everything onto your plate and don’t forget to serve the salsa, it’s zingy!

Recipe Notes

  • Make sure your mince is extra lean, less than 5% of fat per 100g.
  • For those on 2018 BC plans, sweet chilli sauce is a swap for other side sauces provided you choose one with equivalent macros.
  • For anyone following BC plans, the quantities of the Thai curry paste and sweet chilli sauce have been halved in order to have both in this recipe.
