    Spectatrix's Note:

    Bun thit nuong, BBQ pork with rice vermicelli, is a dish commonly found in American Vietnamese restaurants and is one of my favorite meals. I finally decided to try making it myself and discovered this recipe, making a few tweaks to suit my own tastes.

    Thit Nuong (BBQ pork)

    Nuoc Mam (sweet fish sauce)

    Bun (vermicelli)


    1. 1
      Mix all thit nuong ingredients together. Refrigerate and marinate for at least half an hour.
    2. 2
      While meat is marinading, mix nuoc mam ingredients together, stirring until sugar is completely dissolved. Set aside.
    3. 3
      Boil vermicelli according to package directions, draining once cooked through.
    4. 4
      Remove pork from the fridge and cook using desired method. Grilling over an open flame is best, but I usually cook it on the stove over medium-high heat, then broil it in the oven for a few minutes.
    5. 5
      In individual serving bowls, place vermicelli, vegetables, and herbs. Top with pork and chopped peanuts. Drizzle nuoc cham and hoisin sauce on top, as desired. Dig in and enjoy!
    6. 6
      Notes: Chicken, shrimp, or even tofu make wonderful substitutions for pork in this recipe.
    7. 7
      Use as many or as few of the suggested vegetables and herbs as desired (or even make your own additions!).
