  1. Mix filling ingredients together in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate 30 minutes for flavors to penetrate.
  2. Combine rice and water in a pot. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover tightly and cook until tender, 30-40 minutes. (You may substitute white rice, which will only take about 20 minutes. You may also use a rice cooker, if you own one.).
  3. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add meat mixture and saute until no longer pink.
  4. Combine sauce ingredients in a bowl, then divide into 4 serving bowls.
  5. Serve family style, with meat, rice and vegetables in bowls on the table, along with a platter of either large lettuce leaves or rice paper wrappers. Place a few spoonfuls of meat, a spoonful of rice, and a few of the vegetables on a leaf, roll up, dip in sauce and eat. (Alternately, mix meat, rice and dipping sauce together, then fill leaves with mixture and vegetables.).
