Another Bbq But With A Vietnamese Twist
As I've mentioned before we did have quite a bit of leftover meat from our previous bbq but 2 days of Korean bbq in a row is still a bit too much for me but how about a bbq with a Vietnamese twist? Although I only cook Monday to Thursday but since they both claimed to be sick I thought I'll "cook" for another night.(maybe???)
I went to Victoria Street after work to gather some fresh herbs, rice paper sheets and some vegetable, the essential ingredients for tonight's dinner. It's amazing how one can change a few things and it becomes a completely different dining experience altogether. I'm not sure if anyone has done this before but I would encourage everyone to give this a try. It's nice, it's new, it's different!!!
You need some asian herbs, Vietnamese rice paper, some bun noodle and most importantly Vietnamese dipping sauce (nouc cham)
P.S soak rice paper sheets one at a time for 20 seconds before wrapping, if not you can tell me what they all end up looking like :)
Sliced cucumber and carrot
A selection of fresh herbs like coriander, thai basil, purple perilla, vietnamese mint, mint and chinese chives..
Leftover meat from the other night (I drizzled some sesame oil and 5 spice powder over it)...
Vietnamese dipping sauce , lettuce and some rice vermicelli (boil for 5 minute)
Closer look at the spreads..
Beef on the hot plate...
We placed some lettuce, grilled meat...
On the right track...
Now dip into the wonderful sauce and eat it!!! very happy tummies indeed!!
Or without the rice paper roll
