I'm no expert at Thai, Lao, Hmong cuisine, but I'm a quick study. My Hmong friends can't believe some white guy made it.
Clockwise: SV pork belly then sauteed with Japanese eggplant and onions in a reduced soy glaze. Soured bamboo salad and Beef knuckles SV until tender then minced with onions and my laab seasoning blend over a bed of mixed greens. No rice (trying to watch carbs) but would normally serve with steamed purple sticky rice.

Man that looks great!

I'm not an eggplant guy but I would definitely destroy the rest of it! :D

The bamboo is slightly soured. I don't know the full process as we get it from our friends parents. We trade goods, I got the bamboo for spicy frog balls (pickled brussel sprouts).
But some stores carry sour bamboo like the one in the link.
Recipe is incredibly simple. Juice from a lime or 2, few dashes of fish sauce (maybe 1-2 tsp or more to taste) green onions, cilantro, a few fresh thai peppers sprinkle of roasted rice powder and some dried ground chili. More or less of anything to taste. Let it sit for a few hours for the flavors to meld. (Optional fresh mint leaves. I didn't have mint or I'd have added a few leaves).

Sometimes we'll do the exact same thing to cucumbers or white fungus. Nice cooling salad

Laco-fermentation, salt brine with garlic and chilies. I'm trying to motivate myself this morning to go to work. But tonight when I get home, I'll see if I have any pics and can share my process. Is there a pickling sub-forum?
