Recipe Ingredients for beef wrapped in pepper leaves (bo nuong la lot)

2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
1/2 yellow onion, chopped (about 2/3 cup)
2 tablespoons finely chopped lemongrass
3 tablespoons chopped Roasted Peanuts
1 teaspoon ground turmeric
2 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons fish sauce
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 pound lean ground beef
1 teaspoon cornstarch (optional, if you want a firm filling that does not weep during cooking)
4 ounces grape leaves (or betel leaves 26 to 30 large leaves)

Recipe Directions for beef wrapped in pepper leaves (bo nuong la lot)

  1. Heat oil in a pan over moderate heat. Add the garlic and onion and stir until softened, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a bowl. Add the lemongrass, peanuts, turmeric, sugar, fish sauce, salt, cornstarch and ground beef to bowl. Mix with a fork until well blended and sticky, about 2 to 3 minutes. Set aside for 30 minutes.

  2. To make the rolls, take 1 heaping tablespoon of the meat mixture and use your hand to shape it into a small sausage. Place it in the center of the leaf. Wrap the leaf around the meat but leave the sides open (roll from tip to towards stem and use the little stem to seal it up, if necessary, use 2 leaves.) When done, place the roll seam side down. Make the remaining rolls in the same way.

  3. Rub a bit of oil on each roll when all of them are done.

  4. To cook, position an oven rack on the top third of the oven and preheat to broil. Slip the baking sheet into the oven and broil for 6 to 8 minutes, turning them frequently to cook evenly and prevent too much charring of the leaf. The cooked rolls will feel firm, look a bit shriveled, and be slightly charred at the edges.

  5. Transfer to a plate and serve with a dipping sauce if desired.

  6. Leftovers reheat well in a toaster oven preheated to 350F.
