Sometimes referred to as Laotian Fried Rice, it is actually a crispy rice salad. The rice is seasoned and formed into balls which are deep fried. Then the rice is broken up for serving. This recipe also calls for soured pork, or som moo. This can be found in Asian markets in the form of a sausage. If you can't find it, substitute spam (no, I am not kidding) that you have sprinkled with a little fresh lime juice to give it that "sour" flavor.
