Tried to recreate one of my favorite vietnamese dishes last night but fell short. At the restaurant we go to, it's called hanoi grilled pork and I think in vietnamese it's called bun thit. The pork is very thin and caramelized with just a little spice and it's served over a salad of rice noodles and chopped lettuce.
I used a marinade of fish sauce, lime juice, lemongrass, honey and garlic. I used boneless pork chops and tried to broil. They were very thick and didn't get that great color/flavor. I'm not looking to replace my fave vietnamese place, just trying to improve my own cooking!
Also, they serve the spring roll sauce along side, is it worth making my own or can I use the bottles I saw at the asian market? Brand names if possible are always appreciated!
