Vietnamese grilled pork wrapped in Lettuce

Vietnamese grilled pork wrapped in  Lettuce created by breezermom

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 Recipe #172588 on top just like they do at Vietnamese restaurants. Voila! Absolutely perfect and my husband and kids loved it! Thank you Rita!

    Fabulous!!! The marinade is amazing....love the cinnamon and anise. I used chicken (as the poster mentioned), and this was really quick and easy to make. I used low sodium soy sauce, and think I'll reduce the amount of soy sauce next time, as I found it just a bit salty. But the pasta balances this out, especially if you cook it in unsalted water. Really great recipe that is easy enough for a weeknight after work, and delicious enough to be served on the weekends for a party. Thanks, Rita, for sharing your recipe. Made for photo tag!

    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.
