DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 350* F.
  • Finely chop the green onion and garlic. Mix all the ingredients (except leaves) together, and divide into 6 equal pieces.
  • 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.
  • 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.
