Excellent !!

I made this recipe today and we were delighted with the results, although I made some modifications.

I used ground beef instead of pork and had no fish sauce. So I added a drizzle of salty soy sauce and a drizzle of lime.

I also infused pandan and lemongrass in the rice cooking water.

The result is really very good, very fine and subtle. The flavors are amazing. Thank you for this recipe.
