    Hi all

    Does anyone know how much soy should be in this recipe?
    I’m guessing 1/2 cup but wanted to be sure.
    Also, has anyone served at room temp? It’s supposed to be close to 100 degrees on Sunday–I was thinking it would be a good dinner.
    What kind of lettuce do you prefer for wrapping? I’m thinking butter lettuce, romaine rib seem a bit tough for rolling, but might work?

    Thanks!

    Laarb (thanks to Pat from TO)
    (serves 4)

    1 lb ground chicken or turkey
    1-1/2 T garlic, minced
    3 green Thai chiles, chopped finely (I use a combo of Serrano and hot red chiles)
    3 T sesame oil
    1 T oyster sauce
    1 T fish sauce
    1/4 c soy sauce
    1 T seasoned rice vinegar
    1/3 c fresh basil, chopped
    2 limes- juiced
    1 small red onion, chopped
    1 head lettuce for wrapping, cleaned and pulled apart

    Saute garlic and chilies in sesame oil. Add chicken or turkey and cook 2 min. Add rest of ingredients except for onions, lime juice and basil. Cook until done. Add onions and lime juice and cook to soften the onion. Add basil at the end.

    here it is

    I love Thai food. Pat from T.O. cooked some for us when we visited recently and gave me the recipe. I have only been home a week or so but have already made it twice. You may not know this name for it but there are similar dishes called Laab and Laap. I am still dieting (staying away from all things white) and always looking for flavorful dishes to cook- this one is a winner:

    LAARB (LAAB, LAAP)
    (serves 4)

    1 lb ground chicken or turkey
    1-1/2 T garlic, minced
    3 green Thai chilies, chopped finely
    3 T sesame oil
    1 T oyster sauce
    1 T fish sauce
    1/4 c soy sauce
    1 T seasoned rice vinegar
    1/3 c fresh basil, chopped
    2 limes- juiced
    1 small red onion, chopped
    1 head lettuce for wrapping, cleaned and pulled apart

    Saute garlic and chilies in sesame oil. Add chicken or turkey and cook 2 min. Add rest of ingredients except for onions, lime juice and basil. Cook until done. Add onions and lime juice and cook to soften the onion. Add basil at the end.

    Serve with these condiments: chopped Thai chilies in seasoned rice vinegar, chopped onion, fresh basil leaves, fresh mint leaves.

    To eat: take a lettuce leaf and mound some Larb filling on it. Add condiments of your choice then wrap up in a “bundle” and eat.

    My preference for wrapping is Butter lettuce, but

    if I can’t get it, or it doesn’t look worthy, I’d go for green or red leaf lettuce.

    Any flexible lettuce and room temp on the meat mixture works great

    I tend to eat these kinds of wraps “open faced” so even romaine works down

    to the bottom for us. Putting mixture down the middle along the rib and just munching along. LOL

    I like soaking full iceberg lettuces in ice water–normally hate iceberg, but PF Chang

    uses this idea for their ground chicken wraps. The nice thing is it can be prepped and kept in the refrigerator until used. It will definitely be cold and crispy.

    Exactly–crispy lettuce of any kind with whatever the meat –or in the case of Vietnamise

    the yellow pancake sliver. It’s the texture of the two.

    Agree on iceberg, Mar, I never knew the secret to those crisp PF leaves-thank you!

    I am going to go with it. :) I like the size of the iceberg leaves for loading with toppings etc. The red leaf and bibb at the farmers market today didn’t seem sturdy or large enough.

    Thanks!
