Grilled Beef Rolls Wrapped in Wild Betel Leaves

The Vietnamese are famous for their rolls and almost every dinner features at least two or three different types
of rolls at the start of the meal.

1 lb (500 g) ground beef
5 oz (150 g) pork fatback
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
20 large wild betel leaves (see note)
or grape leaves, soaked in water to
soften and drained
1 tablespoon oil, for grilling
Fish Sauce Dip, for dipping

Marinade
2 teaspoons five spice powder
2 teaspoons curry powder
1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
2 teaspoons sugar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 tablespoons minced lemongrass
(from inner part of the thick end of
the stalk)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon ground white pepper

 

 

 

1 Combine the Marinade ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Pour the Marinade
over the ground beef, mix until well blended and allow to marinate for at least
30 minutes.
2 In a skillet, pan-fry the pork fatback over medium heat for about 8 minutes.
Remove and set aside to cool, then slice into very thin strips. Mix the pork
strips with the sugar and salt, set aside for 15 minutes, then combine with the
ground beef and mix well.
3 Place 1 heaping tablespoon of the mixture onto a betel leaf and roll the leaf
up tightly, enclosing the filling. Thread the roll on a bamboo skewer. Continue
to make the rolls in the same manner and thread about 3 rolls on each bam-
boo skewer. Repeat until all the ingredients are used up.
4 Brush each skewer with a little oil. Grill the skewered rolls on a pan grill or
under a preheated broiler using medium heat for about 5 minutes on each
side, until the betel leaves are slightly charred.
5 Serve the grilled rolls with a bowl of Fish Sauce Dip on the side.

 

Note: You can also try adding fresh rice noodles into the wrap. Grape
leaves may be substituted for the betel leaves. Use large leaves if possi-
ble, otherwise use 2 leaves together.
