i enjoy this dish at just about every vietnamese restaurant that i find. as far as i can tell, it's a standard dish. however, i can't seem to get it right, and can't find any recipes on the 'net. it's the one that is served either as a thinly pounded pork chop, or as grilled pork on a skewer (generally wrapped with herbs in lettuce, sometimes with vermicelli). either way, it's grilled, slightly sweet, and delicious.
i'm guessing it includes: lemongrass, soy sauce, fish sauce, suger (brown?), garlic, maybe an herb.
but, i'm probably missing one or two elements, and i'm sure my ratios are off (i do it by taste, but not very well apparently!)
if anyone has *any* insight on this, i'd be greatly appreciative. i'm looking to grill up a pork tenderloin for a large group this saturday.
