Serves 4:

  • 1.75 lb (800 g) leg of lamb
  • 8 garlic cloves
  • 1.7 oz (5 cl) oil
  • 3.5 oz (10 cl) sesame oil
  • 1.7 oz (5 cl) soy sauce
  • 1.7 oz (5 cl) rice wine
  • 5 sprigs coriander
  • 5 sprigs sweet basil
  • 2 teaspoons corn starch
  • Salt, black pepper


  • Slice lamb
  • Strip leaves and coarsely chop coriander and sweet basil
  • Peel garlic cloves and slice thinly

Preparation of marinade

  • Mix rice wine, sauce soy and sesame oil in mixing bowl
  • Mix well to achieve a smooth mixture
  • Add lamb slices and mix into marinade well
  • Allow to rest for 30 min at room temperature


  • Heat oil in frying pan or wok over very high heat
  • Remove slices from marinade and toss into frying pan
  • Brown while stirring vigorously for 1 min
  • Add garlic and rest of marinade
  • Brown for 2 to 3 min while stirring vigorously
  • Add coriander and sweet basil
  • Sauté another min
  • Salt and pepper
  • Immediately serve very hot, accompanied by Basmati rice or glutinous rice.


I also like to accompany this recipe with Indian-style sautéed sweet peppers or with cumin potatoes or potatoes with sesame seeds
If you like a stronger flavor, I recommend you add a little hot pepper sliced crosswise, and sauté it with the lamb.
You can substitute Thai sweet basil for traditional sweet basil, and bring out the freshness of the dish by adding a little lime juice or zest during the marinade.
