THAI PORK ‘LAAB’ SALAD

PREP TIME

15 minutes
COOK TIME

10 minutes
SERVES

4
Ingredients

1 tbsp raw glutinous rice*

400g (14 oz) pork mince

¼ cup finely sliced Asian red shallots

¼ cup roughly chopped coriander

½ cup mint leaves

cabbage, snake beans and extra herbs, to serve

rice, to serve (optional)

 

Dressing:

3 tbsp fish sauce

2 tsp grated palm sugar or brown sugar

2 tsp chilli flakes (or to taste)

2 tbsp lime juice

Steps
Step 1

For the dressing, mix ingredients and set aside until ready to serve.

Step 2

Toast the rice in a dry frying pan over high heat until golden brown. Remove from heat and use a mortar and pestle or a spice grinder to grind rice to a fine powder.

Step 3

Cook pork mince in a non-stick frying pan until just cooked. Remove from heat and transfer the pork to a large bowl. While the pork is warm, add the shallots and toss. Add dressing and the toasted rice powder and mix to combine. Taste and adjust the seasoning with more chilli powder, fish sauce and/or lime juice if needed.

Step 4

When you’re happy with the flavour, add the coriander and mint leaves and mix well. Serve warm with cabbage, beans, herbs and steamed rice.

Note Icon

Notes:

– Using glutinous or sticky rice will give you a softer rice powder that creates a thick and soft coating for the finished salad. If glutinous rice is unavailable you can still use regular long grain or jasmine rice to add a similar toasty flavour with a slightly crunchier texture.

Obsessed

So simple and delicious, and many of the steps can be done ahead of time so it comes together very fast! Great as the inside of lettuce wraps with sticky rice
