Vietnamese Pork and Noodle Bowl

Yum! I'm making this.

Vietnamese Pork and Noodle Bowl with Vietnamese Nuoc Cham Dressing

When you want a salad for dinner, but don't really want salad...this is the salad bowl to have.  Because caramelized pork, vermicelli noodles and our Vietnamese Green Tea and Mint Nuoc Cham Dressing make this salad anything but ordinary.  This is actually the first time I have made pork like this and it's unbelievable.  Sweet spicy tender, Asian restaurant style pork.  With boneless ribs, vermicelli noodles and fresh mint, cucumber, chili and this Vietnamese dressing you just can't go wrong! Just plain ole gooood. 


Vietnamese Pork and Noodle Bowl


2 lbs boneless ribs
Vermicelli thin rice noodles (1 package)

VIetnamese Pork Marinade Ingredients 

3/4 Cup brown sugar
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/2 tsp fresh minced or zested ginger
1 large garlic clove minced
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper


Vietnamese Salad Ingredients 

Romaine lettuce
Matchstick cut carrots
1 English cucumber sliced thin
a few sprigs fresh mint (leaves removed from stems)
1 chili sliced for garnish 
Wozz! Vietnamese Green Tea & Mint Nuoc Cham Dressing

To make marinade 

Combine all marinade ingredients in medium bowl

To make Vietnamese caramelized pork 

Turn oven on 400 degrees F 

Remove boneless ribs from package.  Cut extra fat off if needed.  Dredge each boneless rib in marinade. ( Leave excess marinade for later.)

In a large (oven proof skillet or pan) turn stove top on medium high heat, add a couple tablespoons of oil and sear ribs until browned on all sides.  If soy sauce/brown sugar starts burning, just add a bit of water to pan.

Once browned on each side, put pan in oven (you can add a splash of little more water if needed to keep from burning-the pan will get a bit dark from the sugar).  Bake for 25 minutes.  **while your pork is baking get your water boiling for noodles and prepare salad ingredients)

Remove ribs from oven and slice thinly.  Place pork back into pan on stove top. Turn on medium high heat, add what's left of marinade, stir and cook for a couple more minutes.  Remove from pan.

To make Vermicelli Noodles

Add Noodles to pot of boiling water and cook for 2-4 minutes.  Remove and drain.  Briefly run under cold water. (I just followed packaged directions)  Drain. 

Assemble salad by adding a handful of full romaine leaves to one side of bowl, add a bit of noodles to bottom of bowl, add caramelized pork to another side of bowl, add cucumbers fanned, add pile of matchstick carrots, fresh mint leaves, add more noodles to center of bowl, garnish with chili.   Dress salad with Vietnamese Green Tea & Mint Nuoc Cham Dressing

If you want some extra chili heat, add additional chopped fresh chili or add a little Wozz! Super Hot Chili Sambal
