  • 1   
    large garlic clove, smashed
  • 1 1/2  tablespoons 
    light brown sugar
  • 1   teaspoon 
    Thai green curry paste
  • 2   tablespoons 
    fresh lime juice
  • 2   tablespoons 
    Asian fish sauce
  • 1/4  cup 
    chopped cilantro
  • 1/4  cup 
    chopped mint
  • 1/3  cup 
  • 4   cups 
    coleslaw mix
  • 1/2  pound 
    rare deli roast beef, thinly sliced and cut into 1/2-inch strips
  • 24  6  inch round 
    rice paper wrappers, plus more in case of breakage
In a mortar, pound the garlic to a paste with the brown sugar and green curry paste. Add the lime juice, fish sauce, and 3 tablespoons of water. Stir in half of the cilantro and mint. In a small bowl, whisk the mayonnaise with 1 tablespoon of the green curry dipping sauce.
In a large bowl, toss the coleslaw mix with the roast beef and the remaining cilantro and mint.
Fill a pie plate with warm water. Dip 2 or 3 rice paper wrappers at a time in the water, then set them on a work surface to soften, about 1 minute. Spread a scant teaspoon of the curry mayonnaise on the bottom third of each wrapper and top with a scant 3 tablespoons of the roast beef filling. Roll the wrappers into tight cylinders, tucking in the sides as you go. Transfer the rolls to a plastic wrap-lined baking sheet and repeat with the remaining wrappers, curry mayonnaise and filling.
Just before serving, cut each roll in half and serve with the dipping sauce.
