Very simple and delicious! It tastes like a Thai version of keema. We served this with jasmine rice but thought it would be refreshing served in lettuce wraps as well. Thanks for posting!

This was wonderful. very simple to make and so flavorful. Like always i wrinkle my nose at the fish sauce and eat in amazement as the flavor changes completely when cooked. Spicy, sweet, fragrant dish

Yum! So easy, yet so delicious. I omitted the lime leaves, which I usually love, but just didn't want that labour for some reason. A great recipe, a keeper!
