  • 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.
