Transfer to a work surface. Arrange pinch of beef halves across canter of round. Top with some leaves of each herb, then daikon cucumber, and carrot. Arrange a small handful of noodles over. Place 1 lettuce leaf over, torn or folded to fit. Fold bottom of rice paper over filling, then fold in ends and roll like a burrito into a tight cylinder. Transfer roll, seam side down, to a platter.

  • – 1/2 cup / 80 g brown sugar
  • – 1 tbsp water
  • – 400 g / 14 oz coconut milk
  • – 1 1/2 tbsp soy sauce

  3. Stir, then put the chicken in.

  5. Adjust the heat so it is simmering energetically. Not rapidly, not a slow simmer (I use medium high heat).

  8.  
  9. Once sauce and chicken is brown, remove from heat.
