    Rita~'s Note:

    This interesting Vietnamese grilled dish combines pork with the sweet spice of anise and cinnamon. The longer the pork is marinated, the more flavorful the dish. To serve according to Vietnamese tradition, wrap in lettuce leaves, with noodles and fresh mint and cilantro leaves inside. I found this recipe at the EthnicGrocer sight. How good and easy does it sound! I think I'll make it with chicken!

      Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. This is the recipe I have been searching for years for! I am living in a city that doesn't have a Vietnamese Restaurant, but this is just like the pork from my old town. I sliced the pork very thin (as thin as I could). Marinated with this exact recipe for 4-5 hours and grilled it on the BBQ. I put salad consisting of lettuce, cucumber, mint leaves and cilantro leaves in the bottom of each bowl. Placed rice vermecelli on top of that, and a couple slices of pork on that. Sprinkled peanuts on top. Then poured a bit of Vietnamese Dipping Sauce (Nuoc Cham) on top just like they do at Vietnamese restaurants. Voila! Absolutely perfect and my husband and kids loved it! Thank you Rita!

      I've tried a lot of recipes from this site, but this might be the best one. It looks simple but it tastes simply amazing and it's healthy too. I could eat this all the time.

      My family loved this!!!!!! I got my butcher to slice a pork loin roast (on sale)wafer thin. Then I froze it with the marinade and pulled it out a week or so later to cook this. We served it over rice noodles, lettuce and cucumbers and topped it with the All Purpose Stir-fry (Brown Garlic Sauce) found on this site too!!!!
