HANDS DOWN LARB GAI IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS TO EAT!
It's simple to whip up, tastes amazing hot or cold, and is so fresh and satisfying. I swear, there have been weeks where I have had this day after day. It really hits all the flavors I love. Spicy, sour, salty, a little sweet, and all the herbs just take it to another level. Literally drooling thinking about this dish as I type!
I love this dish served up a few ways.
Alongside some lovely steamed Jasmin rice.
Paired with some cabbage wedges, cucumber sticks, and green beans (how it's traditionally served).
Or served up in lettuce or cabbage bowls.
This dish is wonderful for entertaining or taking it with you on the go.
For the meat, you can use chicken, pork, or beef. Pro tip – go for ground meat that has a little fat. Otherwise, your Larb will be quite dry.
Doing a Whole30 or Clean-in-15? No problem, sub the toasted rice for some chopped or crushed nuts. I like toasted cashews!
