    currybunny's Note:

    From a Vietnamese recipe website, this is delicious, very healthy and perfect for those warm summer days. I highly recommend Nat Da Brat's Nuoc Cham #103760 for the dressing - Zaar won't let me write it in the ingredients, but you need about 2-4 tablespoons per serve.

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      To make the marinade paste, pound the onion, garlic and lemongrass with a mortar and pestle or with a food processor until coarse. Add in the salt, black pepper, curry powder if desired, and fish sauce. Stir mixture over the beef and marinate for 1 hour or overnight if possible.
    2. 2
      Bring a saucepan of water to the boil, add the vermicelli noodles and cook for 3-5 minutes or until tender. Drain, refresh under cold water, drain again and set aside.
    3. 3
      Thread the meat strips onto the bamboo skewers. Grill till done to taste.
    4. 4
      To serve, place a portion of noodles in a large soup bowl. Then place the beef, lettuce, cucumber, bean sprouts, mint leaves, fresh coriander, carrot and 1 teaspoon crushed peanuts on top of the noodles. Dress the ingredients with 2 tablespoons nuoc cham, or more to taste - I use around 4 tablespoons for each serving. Toss the ingredients together and serve. Repeat the process for each serving.

      I really liked the flavors in this! I don't normally make Asian food at home, but this recipe intrigued me, so I took the plunge. I marinated the meat overnight (I used lemongrass paste, and I used the curry powder, too). The noodles threw me a bit once they were cooked, because they seemed kind of slimy, and they were clear. I don't really have a point of reference for this type of noodle, though, so it could just be the way that type of noodle cooks up. I also added a little bit of Thai basil with the other herbs, just because I like it. I served it with the recommended Nuoc Cham #103760, too (which I think I could have eaten all by itself). I definitely think this is something that needs to be eaten as soon as possible after cooking, because I didn't like the texture of the dish as much after a few hours (I made it in the morning and brought some to work for dinner). I'll have to make it again sometime when I can actually sit and eat it right away, because I love it freshly made. Thanks for posting!
