    Buster's friend's Note:

    Wonderful fast summer or anytime meal that comes together quickly once you have your ingredients prepped. Mise en place very helpful with this dish. From Taste of Thai - thank you! Use a nice butter lettuce for this - core the head & rinse the leaves well. Dry & have plenty available - use 2 heads if they seem small - 1 per serving! I entered 12 leaves simply because the program required a number - we just keep a couple of heads available when we make this.

      Labb is one of my favorites. Mama mazie, if your laab is crunchie you didn't make it right. The rice is ground into a powder.

      This was very good and so easy to make. I have never made thai food before, so I was quite excited.

      Very tasty! I had extra mint so I made a mojito which was a very nice accompaniment despite the far away origins...I put the hot larb on some fresh green kale. It wilted it just a tiny bit and the spices in the larb were enough to overpower any strong kale flavor...plus, it just looked pretty!
