- 4 spring onions, sliced
- 3 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
- 2 tbsp dark soy sauce

- Heat half the oil in a frying pan over a medium-high heat and fry the ciabatta pieces until crisp and golden. Set aside on kitchen paper.
- Heat the remaining oil in the pan over a medium heat. Add the onion and garlic, then fry for 10 minutes until soft and golden. Add the mince and fry until browned. Add the stock and simmer for 15–20 minutes.
