    Larb Nua

    1 pound ground beef
    1 stalk lemongrass
    2 cloves garlic
    1 lime, juiced (or more)
    3 Tbs Fish Sauce
    1 tsp Chili Paste (more or less, to taste)
    6-8 green onions, chopped
    1/4 white onion, sliced
    handful of mint leaves
    *toasted and ground sticky rice

    *Toast sticky rice in a dry, hot skillet. When golden, remove and allow to cool. Grind in a mortar and pestle or in a blender.

    Brown ground beef, drain, return to skillet. Add all remaining ingredients except for toasted and ground sticky rice. Heat and stir for a few minutes. Serve over a bed of rice or on top of lettuce or cabbage.

    Variations:
    Larb Gai -- substitute ground chicken for ground beef
    Larb Moo -- substitute ground pork for ground beef
    Larb Ped -- substitute ground duck for ground beef
    Larb Pla Mueck -- substitute ground squid for ground beef

    Note that this is Atkins friendly and very quick to prepare and cook. Enjoy.

    I enjoy this dish with chicken from my local Thai hole-in-the-wall. They call it Chicken with Mint Leaves. I thought for sure there were some soysauce (because the sauce looks dark) and some sugar. Didn't see these in your recipe?

    Hey allanc,
    If you're a Thai recipe expert, I need help with a couple of dishes I like a lot. One is called Fried Glass Noodles with Pork - looks like it has vermicelli noodles, pork, cabbage, bean sprouts, tomatoes, green onions. The other is Chicken with Bamboo Shoots - chicken, bamboo shoots, mushrooms, in a mildly sweet sauce that looks like it has egg drops in it. Yummy!

    I always get Gang Gai with chicken, as hot as they're willing to make it.

    I know a few Thai dishes but I don't know how to prepare those.

    My favorite Thai dishes are Pad Thai and Pad Woon Sen. Although they're both noodle dishes, they're quite different from each other.

    I really miss Thai Garden on Route 1 in Freeport, ME... ;1 ;1 ;1
