  • Trim pork of silver skin and fat. Cut in cubes and freeze in single layer until firm but still pliable (15 to 20 minutes).
  • Meanwhile, prepare rice powder if needed (if you're making it from scratch, toast 1 tablespoon white rice 5 minutes in small pan, then grind with mortar and pestle). Slice onion thinly. Assemble other ingredients.
  • Process partially frozen meat, 1/2 at a time, in food processor, pulsing 5-6 times until coarsely chopped. Stir 1 tablespoon fish sauce into ground meat and refrigerate 15 minutes to marinade meat.
  • Bring broth to simmer in 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Add pork and cook 2 minutes, stirring. Add 1 teaspoon rice powder. Stir 1-1/2 minutes more until no longer pink.
  • Transfer pork to large bowl and cool 10 minutes. Add 1½ tablespoons fish sauce, remaining rice powder, shallots, lime juice, sugar, red pepper flakes, mint, and cilantro.
  • Serve with lettuce leaves.
