AT A GLANCE
We've spiked this larb with aniseed. It's a natural partner to pork and adds an extra flavour dimension to this simple dish.
|01||For toasted brown rice dressing, dry-roast rice in a frying pan over high heat, stirring constantly, until light golden (1 minute). Add aniseed and toast until fragrant (1 minute). Finely grind with a mortar and pestle, then blend in a blender with remaining ingredients until mixture is very finely chopped.|
|02||Bring stock to the boil in a frying pan, then add pork and simmer, stirring occasionally, until just cooked, adding beans in the last minute of cooking (4-5 minutes).|
|03||Transfer pork mixture to a bowl, add dressing, toss to combine and season to taste. Cool briefly, then add onion, cucumber and herbs, and serve warm with lettuce cups, chilli, fried shallots and steamed rice.|
