Vietnamese Noodle salad/bowl instructions
- Prep the protein.
- Pork is a normal meat for this, but chicken, beef, lamb works well. I am trying tofu next time..
- Cut your protein into bite size pieces of your choosing..
- Add lemon grass, this is what I use, since actual lemon grass is not easily available. If you can't find it, leave it out. It will still taste great..
- Add the rest of the meat ingredients, mix well. Cover and let set 30 minutes to an hour..
- Prep the sauce.
- If you are using a hot chili, thinly slice..
- Mix all sauce ingredients, set aside..
- Get the cooking steps done.
- If you have any that require blanching, do that now, cool immediately. Use water for noodles if using noodles..
- Prepare noodles per package directions, to el dente..
- Drain noodles, wash to cool down, mix a tiny bit of oil in to stop it from sticking, set aside.
- Now would be a good time to assemble your spring rolls, this is how I did it 😉.
- Cook pork in a skillet/wok/stir-fry.
- Set aside to cool.
- Cook spring rolls, set aside to cool, I used my air fryer for this.
- Julian cucumber, carrot and any other veggies that require it..
- Clean some lettuce (green leaf here, it seems to work the best, really) and place the leafy parts in your bowls..
- Cut your spring rolls, I found the least crumble way is to put the point of the knife in, then cut down. Finish the cut. You still crumble a little, but not as much as just slamming through it..
- Put your noodles or rice in the center of the lettuce. Place all the other things around, pretty easy..
- Pour the sauce in to your liking, mix it all up..
- Veggies; cucumber and carrots seem to always be in this. I used sugar snap peas here, asparagus, avacados, spinach (wilted) just some more options. Thin sliced red onion, green onion, many options to choose from..
