    Random Rachel's Note:

    Flavorful pork patties baked in banana leaves. I adapted the original Thai recipe into individual patties which cook faster and are easier to handle than the original large tube/loaf. I can't eat fish or soy sauce, so I just leave it out (which does take away a little flavor,) or sometimes substitute a splash of beef broth or wine instead. For ZWT9

    Serves: 6



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 350* F.
    2. 2
      Finely chop the green onion and garlic. Mix all the ingredients (except leaves) together, and divide into 6 equal pieces.
    3. 3
      Cut the banana leaves into 6 squares, about 9"x9". Shape a portion of the meat into a patty, and place in the center of a leaf piece. Fold the sides over the patty, then fold the ends up. Repeat with remaining meat.
    4. 4
      Place patties on a rack or pan in the oven, and bake for 20-30 minutes until meat reaches 160* F. My 6 patties took 25 minutes to reach 160* F.
