    I am Vietnamese and would like to tell you that this dish is exquisite! The wife and I love it. Our kids however found it a bit spicy because of the pepper.

    Very cool recipe. Be careful not to overdo the sugar. I sliced some cool pork and put it in spring rolls and the favor balance was wonderful!
