2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Prep and cook the lamb

  • Cut a small corner from the ground lamb packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the lamb and cook, stirring to break up the meat, until lightly browned and almost cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes. Stir in the lemongrass paste and cook until fragrant and the lamb is cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
While the lamb cooks, prepare the remaining ingredients.


Prep the remaining ingredients

  • Trim the root end from the lettuce; separate the leaves.
  • Peel the cucumber, if desired; cut the cucumber into enough ¼-inch pieces to measure 1 cup [2 cups].
  • Cut the lime into wedges.
  • Strip the mint leaves from the stems; coarsely tear the leaves.


Arrange the lettuce leaves on one end of a serving platter and transfer the lamb to the other end. Add the carrots, cucumber, lime wedges, and mint to the platter and invite everyone to assemble their own lettuce cups. Serve the sambal oelek and fish sauce on the side and let everyone season to taste.
