But, if anyone has a good recipe I'm all ears.
I don't know what Timryan is looking for but I'm pretty sure what he described was not Larb (or laab) Gai. Only because Larb Gai does not have bell pepper nor peanuts. Mint yes. And the chicken meat is minced in Larb Gai, not diced. Wish I could be of more help.
So Lynan, yes, mint leaves are great in Larb.
