Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

Notes about this recipe

    We also really loved this- the fresh herbs were really nice. We only used four chiles and that was plenty for us. I subbed ginger for galangal since I couldn't get fresh galangal- I'm sure it's even better without the sub that I made. Served with white rice, lettuce, and pickled carrots.

    Very flavorful, even cutting back on the chiless a bit - almost as good as the laab at our local Thai place. We served with butter lettuce, the recommended steamed veggies (used carrots and delicotta squash), and white rice.
