Serves: 4 person(s)

Preparation Time: 20 mins
Cooking Time: 10 mins

Ingredients:

    1/3 kg 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!
