Ingredients

  • Ingredients:

Dipping Sauce:

  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 Thai chilies with seeds, thinly sliced, optional
  • 1 tablespoon water

Filling:

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 pound ground pork
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon soy sauce
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Garnish:

  • 1/4 cup torn basil, mint and cilantro leaves
  • 1 Thai chili with seeds, thinly sliced, (optional)
  • 1 butterhead or iceberg lettuce

Instructions

  1. Combine all the ingredients for the Dipping Sauce and whisk to blend. Set aside or refrigerate until use.
  2. For the Filling, heat up the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add in the garlic and cook until golden brown. Add the sugar and cook for 20 seconds.
  3. Mix in the pork and cook over moderate high heat. Break the meat finely and cook thoroughly until no pink, about 4 minutes. Add in the fish sauce and soy sauce, stir to mix. Add in salt and pepper to taste. Turn off heat, transfer to a bowl and set aside.
  4. To assemble, take a tablespoon or two (depending on the size of the leave) of the ground pork filling and fill the middle of the lettuce leave. Add the dipping sauce on top of the meat, wrap and enjoy. If you like some extra heat, you may add the Thai chilies in your lettuce wraps, which is optional.
