A simple introduction to Hmong food and recipe.

Slide 1

Chicken Curry

Our kids really like this dish even though it has a slight kick to it. Even our yougest will finish half a plate before it becomes too spicy. Here it's served with rice and fried mustard.

Pork & Green Onion

In our family, mustard greens is used in a variety of ways, fried with pork is a simple and quick way to to make it. Goes great with rice.

Laap (Beef)

This popular Hmong dish is commonly made at most parties and family reunions. Traditionally this dish can be made raw, partially cook, or fully cooked. It is also made with a lot of other ingredients that is not included in this recipe such as tripe and other interal organs. It can also be made with any type of meet, including turkey, and fish. In fact, I think the best Laap I've ever had was made from Catfish.

Pad Thai

This is one of my favorite dish. It's a Thai dish and not really Hmong, but our family loves it and we make it often.

Simple to make and the taste doesn't overwhelm. Most of the recipes are light and only consist of a few ingredients.
