Today I would like to share with you an easy dish that is good for appetizer, snack or pair it with rice noodle for main dish. For more information on Betel Leaf (La Lot), and not to confuse with betel from wiki (because that is "La Trau" a different kind). If for some reason you can't fine Betel leaves you can substitute with Grape leaves and it'll be as yummy.
Ingredients1 lb ground beef
¼ lb ground pork
2 stalks scallion (chopped)
3 cloves garlic (minced)
2 tablespoons finely minced lemongrass (about 1 small-small stalk)
1 teaspoon Madras curry powder
2 teaspoons fish sauce
1 ½ teaspoons oyster sauce
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
½ teaspoon 5 spice powder
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 ½ teaspoon sugar
.4 oz betel leaves (3-4 dozen betel leaves)
In a bowl, add ground beef, ground pork and all the ingredients together. Use your hand to mix well.
Use your figures or scissor to pluck the betel leaves from stems. Make sure to keep the little stem attached to the leaf. You’ll need it to seal it up later. Rinse and pat to dry.
Turn down to low-heat and place the rolls on the grill. Grill for about 7-10 minutes flip it frequently to avoid burning. Cooked rolls will feel firm, look a bit shrunken, and a little charred.
