Pork with fresh mint leaves

1 dssp soy sauce
1 tsp fish sauce
salt and freshly ground pepper
30 or more fresh mint leaves

2 Heat the oil in a saut? or frying pan. Add the crushed garlic?and?toss, then add the soy sauce and’minced pork. Stir and cook, tossing regularly until fully cooked and the oil comes to the top,?about 4-5 minutes.
3 Add fish sauce to taste and lots of roughly chopped mint leaves. Taste?and season with salt and freshly ground pepper if necessary. Add more soy or fish sauce if?needed.
4 Serve with plain boiled rice.

Burmese avocado juice
The Burmese love this refreshing drink???they enjoy the texture?(thick and gloopy), but you can add a?little extra water if you’d prefer a lighter texture – it’s so easy and delicious.

2 ripe avocados
375ml (13 fl oz) water
100ml (3? fl oz) condensed milk
100ml (3? fl oz) evaporated milk

3-4 tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice, or more if liked

METHOD
Blend all of the above ingredients together. Taste and tweak as necessary. Add ice cubes if you fancy ??they didn’t in Burma.
