Directions

  1. Toast the rice in a skillet over medium-high heat until lightly browned. Transfer the rice to a mortar and pestle or a food processor and grind into a coarse powder.
  2. Cook pork in a skillet over medium-high heat for 4 minutes. Place the onions in the skillet with the pork and continue to cook and stir until the onions are translucent, about 4 minutes. Stir in the curry paste and cook until aromatic. Mix in the tomato paste and reduce the heat to a simmer. Pour in 1/4 cup water if the pork seems dry and begins to stick to the bottom of the pan. Add the roasted, ground rice and continue to simmer until the ground rice is tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in lime juice and fish sauce to taste. Serve pork in lettuce leaves.

I just made this for the first time tonight. My whole family (5 kids plus me) just loved it. The fish sauce and lime add a wonderful piquancy. It was a bit difficult to eat wrapped in the lettuce leaves, but we all agreed that the lettuce made it awesome! I did need to add the 1/4 cup of water. I'd like it spicier for myself...but it was perfect for my kids.

These were a little bland. The fish oil and red curry paste gave the pork an odd taste (and I usually like both in other dishes) and my husband and I felt it needed something besides the meat mixture and the lettuce. Immediately after it was prepared it was edible for dinner but the leftovers were not.
