Larb (Laab) Thai Meat Salad With Mint and Lemongrass

Larb (Laab) Thai Meat Salad With Mint and Lemongrass created by Queen Dana

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.

    So excellent - I followed the recipe exactly but only 2/3 because I had only 1 pound of ground chicken. I looked for my rice paper but could not find it so I placed this on a bed of butter lettuce. I planned to add some roasted rice powder, a suggestion from another recipe, but forgot to put it on! Again, so excellent and I will make it again. Thanks for posting, MarraMamba!

    This was very good... though not as good as the larb at my local Thai restaurant. I made Recipe #30248 in place of the chili paste. Made for Zwt6.

    This was really good. I made a half recipe, which I wrapped up in rice paper to make spring rolls. I used ground pork, since it was on hand, but ground chicken would be equally good. Three was a little too much sauce for the amount of meat, I think next time I'll make half the sauce, so there isn't any liquid left int he bottom of the pan. There was a great balance of flavors, sour from the lime juice, sweet from the sugar, salty from the fish sauce, and spicy from the chile and chile paste. I love Thai food, and this will be a definite make again. Thanks for an easy and yummy dinner.
