Bún Thịt Nướng Recipe (Vietnamese Grilled Pork & Rice Noodles)
Vietnamese bún thịt nướng is a delicious combination of grillled pork, noodles, veggies, and fish sauce.You have your sweet bits, sour bits, caramelization, some crunch, and aromatic herbs in a colorful bowl. And it's easy to make
Servings: 4 bowls
- 1.5 lb pork shoulder sliced (any cut will do)
- 1 package rice noodles small or medium thickness
- 4-6 egg rolls optional
- 3 tbsp shallots minced
- 1.5 tbsp garlic minced
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 tbsp fish sauce
- 1/2 tbsp thick soy sauce
- 1/2 tbsp pepper
- 3 tbsp neutral cooking oil
- green leaf lettuce
- mint rau thơm
- Vietnamese perilla tiá tô
- Vietnamese balm kinh giới
- cucumbers sliced
- pickled daikon and carrots (đồ chua)
- 1/2 tbsp scallion in oil (mở hành)
- 1/2 tbsp crushed peanuts
Slice the uncooked pork thinly, about 1/8". It helps to slightly freeze it beforehand.
Mince garlic and shallots. Mix in a bowl with sugar, fish sauce, thick soy sauce, pepper, and oil until sugar dissolves.
Marinate the meat for 1 hour, or overnight for better results.
Bake the pork at 375 F for 10-15 minutes or until about 80% cooked. Finish cooking by broiling in the oven until a nice golden brown color develops, flipping the pieces midway. Don't take your eyes off the broiler!
Assemble your bowl with veggies, noodles, and garnish. Many like to mix the whole bowl up and pour the fish sauce on top, but I like to make individual bites and sauce it slowly.
