Aug 25: Bahn Mi; Beef Larb Lettuce Wraps

Lunch

Today we had our favorite sandwich: a pork Bahn Mi for $8.75 per serve.

Dinner

Our plan was Beef Larb Lettuce wraps, and it almost went that way. The Beef Larb is built on a pork recipe┬ábut we decided on beef because we had ground beef! The beef version isn’t as good as the Caramelized Pork we had recently. We skipped the rice

The recipe makes four serves. Foodie Philip had seconds with the beef larb directly over the bean sprouts drizzled with the Nam Prik Nam Pla dipping sauce.

  • The beef was $9.89 or $2.48 per serve
  • Add 50c for seasonings
  • Bean sprouts are $2.49 per pack and we used about 1/3 per serve or 42c per serve
  • Add 30c for lettuce
  • Add 30c for dipping sauce ingredients.

Because the lettuce wasn’t “cupped” it wasn’t as successful as a wrap as we would have liked as the meat tended to fall out during dipping! Still, good flavor and great balance between savory, salty and sour for $4.00 per serve.
