From the Test Kitchen

You may have seen larb (also spelled laap or laab) on the menu at a Thai restaurant, but in fact, it’s the national dish of Laos. It’s a salad of minced meat such as duck, beef, chicken, or pork with fresh vegetables. Traditionally, it’s served with sticky rice, so we created our own version of the side by cooking Jasmine rice with coconut milk to add a touch of sweetness and richness.
