Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium high heat.
Saute ginger and garlic. Cook, stirring frequently with a wooden spatula. Cook the garlic pieces until they are glazed and golden brown in color.
Add ground meat and cook for 15 minutes or until well browned.
Now stir in the hot sauce and tomato paste.
Stir in the green onions and green pepper until tender, about 1-2 minutes.
Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Cook for 10 minutes or until mince is cooked thorough.
Remove from the heat and sprinkle herb seasoning.
Spoon into lettuce cups and serve.
Garnish with extra mint or coriander leaves, if using.
Alternatively, serve the mince in bowls with the lettuce cups on the side so people can help themselves.
