Thai Larb is a wonderful dish from Thailand that utilizes a great blend of ground beef, vegetables, and spices for a refreshing dish. This is the companion write-up to the video demonstration below made by Chef Ming Tsai using a T-fal Actifry air fryer. Serves four.

We were introduced to this recipe before we visited Thailand, once there, I went out of my way to find some authentic Thai Larb.   It is indeed delicious as it is colorful, tasty.  The Sambal sauce is what gives Larb its amazing flavor with its chilis, shallots, garlic, and ginger flavors.   I would definitely give this dish a try if I were you because Larb is super simple, super tasty, with common ingredients that are found in a grocery store.
