    Very good. I didn't have the chiles and I think they could have used the heat. Next time I'll follow Zosia's idea of broiling them to avoid splatter all over my cooktop. They are a little awkward to eat but perhaps my lettuce leaves weren't as big as they should have been.

    These had great flavour and the meatballs were wonderfully tender. I broiled rather than fry them and included julienned cucumber with the carrots but otherwise made the recipe as written.

    These were delicious - the fish sauce really adds a lot of flavor to the ground pork. The variety of textures was excellent with the spongy texture of the meatballs and the crisp fresh lettuce and then the dressed shredded carrots. The only negative is that it is not really easy to eat. To wrap three meatballs up in lettuce and then pick up to eat like other lettuce wraps was a little challenging. Perhaps make meatballs smaller next time or my daughter suggested placing the whole thing inside of a tortilla to hold it together.
