Ingredients Convert to Metric

  • 3/4 lb lean ground pork
  • 3 fresh limes
  • 2 cup cold water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced shallots
  • 1/2 cup chopped mint
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 Tbsp rice vinegar, seasoned
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne
  • 2 Tbsp Thai fish sauce
  • 4 cup finely shredded cabbage

Directions:

Combine the pork and the juice of one lime in a saucepan. Cover with the salted cold water and bring to a simmer until the pork is cooked. Ground pork should take about 3 minutes. Other pork will take longer.

Strain the pork in a colander, pat between two paper towels to remove excess fat. Toss pork with the sliced shallots, mint and cilantro. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.

Variations:

For added flavor, after all ingredients have been mixed, try adding 1/4 cup of dry roasted peanuts or a tablespoon of peanut butter. But remember, this will increase the fat content of this recipe dramatically!
