Vietnamese cooking : Nem Nuong - help required


Recommended Posts

I would like to collect recipes for Nem Nuong. Nem Nuong consist of pork meat balls that you wrap in salad, vegetables and rice paper wrapper.

I have a few recipes already, and my Nem Nuong is really well appreciated among my friends and family, but to tell you the truth, I am not happy with the meat.

The way I cook the pork is as follows (not the whole recipe):

- With a knife, I chop the fatty pork brisket

- then I crush the meat in a mortar for a very long time

- I add suger, garlic, onions, salt and pepper

I allow it to rest fro two hours, and then I make balls out of it, and grill it over the barbecue.

The sauce that I serve along with the meat balls is a special peanut and garlic sauce. One I have found the recipe for the pork, I will give you the whole recipe.

The meat I obtain is not dry when cook properly, but I don't like the texture of it. Should be more like "pâté" than grilled pork.

Here is a picture I took in Da nang a few years ago. I was wandering around with my wife on our honey moon, and we suddently were caught in the middle of an extraordinary agitation : a Nem Nuong "fabric"/ I say fabric because the quantity of Nem nuong served was huge.

If anybody has a clue, on how to prepare the meat, I would be very grateful.

I love cooking, love eating. My very personal taste drives me towards personal interpretation of traditional dishes in Lao, vietnamese, Thai and French cuisine. I am looking for world wide confrontation of techniques, ingredients and recipes. All feedback are welcome.<br />
