Buckle your seatbelt these really are the Best Thai Lettuce Wraps! Seasoned with plenty of fragrant chilies, garlic, herbs and finished with a squeeze of fresh lime and classic peanut sauce. The combination of sweet, salty, tangy and spicy flavors makes it highly addictive.
Combine all ingredients except water. Blitz in the food processor or whisk until fully combined.
Then add the water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until desired texture is reached. We typically use 2 tablespoons for a sauce and up to 4 Tablespoons if making it for dressing.
In a large glass bowl mix the pork, hamburger, garlic, shallots, Thai chili pepper, fish sauce, chili sauce, Siracha, and light brown sugar. Mix gently by hand or with a wooden spoon until combined.
Heat a heavy-bottomed skillet or Dutch Oven over high heat, add the vegetable oil and reheat for 30 seconds. Add the pork and beef mixture and cook over high heat, stirring to break up the meat, until no pink remains about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and rest for 5 minutes then stir in the lime juice, cilantro, and basil.
Pile into lettuce and top with peanut Sauce and desired fresh veg toppings and serve with lime wedges.
