Grilled Pork with Vermicelli (photos)

Pork Butt sliced 1/4" thick and marinated over night in a lemon grass, shallot, garlic, sugar and fish sauce blend. The Vietnamese call it Thit Nuong. It made a superb lunch today.

    Can you post the recipe? Looks great! Do you think it would work with 1/2 in thick pork steaks (they're cut from the shoulder)?

    I found the grates at an Asian market here in San Diego.  $2.95 each.  Two of them fit perfect without cutting off the handles. My win!

    • 1.5 lb pork butt or shoulder, thinly sliced just under 1/4 inch or so (not too thin as you do not want it to dry out when grilled. Ask your butcher to do this for you. Also, do not use lean pork as it will become dry.)
    • 1/4 cup minced Lemongrass (xa bam). Many Asian markets will sell minced lemongrass in the freezer section.
    • 1/4 cup sugar
    • 2 tbs fish sauce
    • 1 tbs ground pepper
    • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced (use more according to taste)
    • 2-3 shallots, minced.
    • 3 tbs sesame oil
    • 1 tbs thick soy sauce (not regular soy sauce–has molasses, making it thicker and adding great color. If not available, can use caramel sauce. Both can be found at Asian groceries)
    • 3 tbs roasted sesame
    • flexible grilling basket or indoor grill

    Cut any large pieces of sliced pork into roughly 2-3 inch strips. Again, not too small as you do not want it to dry out and also so that it doesn’t fall through the grilling basket. For best results grill outdoors using a flexible grilling basket. Grilling on an indoor grill however, is perfectly acceptable.

    For the marinade, combine in large mixing bowl the lemongrass, shallots, garlic, sugar, fish sauce, pepper, dark soy sauce, sesame oil. Add pork and mix well and marinade for at least 1-2 hrs.

    Yes, I think that it will work with a thicker cut. But be careful with the heat as it has sugar in the recipe and might brown/burn easily. Perhaps consider an indirect cook.

    I am so doing this with my next pork shoulder.    That picture with them piled up just after the cook is the best piece of carnivore porn I've seen in ages.
