Thai minced Pork Laab


This is kind of Thai lettuce wrap

1 lb of ground pork or ground chicken
1 pg of Thai Laab seasoning powder
2 T of fish sauce
1 to 2 T of lime juice
1 T of crush chili or less up to you
1 t of sugar
2 shallots sliced thin
Half of red bell pepper slice thin
3 kaffir lime leaves sliced very thin
1/2 cup of water

Garnish with
1/4 cup of chopped cilantro
1/4 cup of chopped mints
Any kind of lettuce to wrap the meat mixture

In fry pan or pot mix ground pork with ½ cup of water break the meat to small pieces and bring to a boil to cook the pork. (The water makes the meat softer). When the meat is done drain the water out.
Put the meat back on low heat and add Lab seasoning powder, shallots, kaffir lime leaves, fish sauce, lime juice, chili, bell pepper, and sugar
Stir the mixture for 2 minutes till the shallots are soft. Turn the heat off
Let the meat mixture cool down a bit before adding cilantro, and mints
Spoon the mixture into lettuce leaf and serve as lettuce wrap with peanut sauce drizzle over it
Thai serve their Lab with sticky rice and fresh crunchy vegetables, but for me it is just as easy to put in lettuce wrap style.
