Heat a large frying pan or wok. Mix together the garlic, salt, pepper,

the pork and stir-fry for 8-10 minutes until well browned, breaking up
the mince as it cooks with a wooden spoon. 3 Heat at least 5cm/2" oil
to 375F/190C in a pan or deep-fat fryer. Add the peanuts, bamboo
shoots, fish sauce or soy, honey and chillies to the pork mixture and
cook for another five minutes or until the liquid has almost
completely evaporated. 4 Add two of the shallots to the heated oil and
deep-fry for 30 seconds or so until crispy. Remove with a slotted
spoon and drain well on kitchen paper. 5 Place the remaining shallot
in a bowl with the orange segments and a heaped teaspoon each of mint
and coriander. Mix until well combined and pile into the middle of a
large plate or platter. 6 Stir the remaining mint and coriander into
the pork mixture and use to fill the lettuce leaves, arranging them
around the orange salad. Scatter over the crispy shallots and serve at
once. Converted by MC_Buster. Recipe by: Food & Drink Converted by
