Larb (Laab) Thai Meat Salad With Mint and Lemongrass

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by MarraMamba

I first had this dish when i lived in Port au Prince Haiti, a thai restaurant served it..i loved it and have kept looking for one that has the right spicing. It is a wonderful scented tasting heaven. Most of them have to few flavors but it needs enough of each herb. Of course people can change the amounts to their taste. Serve over rice or roll up in rice paper or lettuce rolls.

I'm sorry, I hate giving reviews that are so bad, but this was not good. The amount of lime in this recipe is too much that it overpowers everything else.
