1 tsp sesame oil
2 tsp chopped jalapeños
2 tsp of lemon grass (sliced)
1.15 lb ground pork natural
2 pinches of salt
1/4 cup lime juice
1/4 cup cilantro (chopped)
1tsp chopped mint
1 large garlic fine chopped
Chili sauce (to taste and optional)
Over medium high heat and the sesame oil in a skillet, sauté the lemon grass then add the jalapeño.
Add the ground pork and salt and cook into fully cooked please be careful to not overcook as the meat will get dry.
Once fully cooked removed from the heat let it cool off
Once cooled, place cooked pork in a mixing bowl and add lime juice, cilantro, mint and garlic. Toss to combine and let the flavors meld for a bit, 10 – 15 minutes.
Ok...if you like herby flavors then you are done! Just taste it and see if you would like more salt of any extra items!
But if you like spicy please add chili sauce to the mixture slowly to taste it really brings out the flavors better and adds the spicy kick in an Asian way.
Arrange your plate with the butter lettuce around and place a nice bowl with the filling in the middle!
