Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
500g boneless belly pork rashers or pork butterfly steaks
3 garlic cloves, smashed and chopped
2 tablespoons fish sauce
freshly ground pepper, to taste
2 teaspoons sugar
cooked fresh rice noodles
lettuce leaves

Method

  1. Slice the pork into pieces about 1 cm thick. Make a marinade by crushing the garlic in a mortar then mixing in the fish sauce, pepper and sugar or alternatively blending all these ingredients together in a food processor attachment. Marinate the meat in this sauce for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  2. Cook the pork slices on a charcoal grill, on a griddle or under a griller on the stove, turning to brown on both sides. Cut across into 4 cm pieces, pile on a plate and serve hot.
  3. Have on the table a bowl of cooked fresh rice noodles, a Herb salad plate, a plate of Lightly pickled carrot and chinese turnip and some Nuoc cham dipping sauce. Diners tear some lettuce into the bottom of an individual rice bowl, put some noodles on top, add meat, herbs and pickled vegetables and eat with the dipping sauce.
  4. Belly pork rashers marinated this way also go very well in a Western-style barbecue.
