To make the rice:
Wash the broken rice "Gạo tấm" a few times until the water
Add boiling hot water to barely cover the rice and press to cook in a rice cooker.
To make the grilled pork chop, in a large bowl, combine the minced lemongrass,
garlic, soy sauce, fish sauce, honey, pepper and vegetable oil. Mix well. Rub the
marinade on both sides of the pork chop and set aside for a few hours or overnight
in the fridge.
To grill the pork:
Preheat the oven to 190°C (375°F). Line the baking tray with
aluminum foil and bake the pork chops for 15 minutes, then turn them over and
bake for another 15 minutes. You can also grill on char coal or pan-fry them. The
cooking time might vary depending on the thickness of the pork chop. Now, wow
look at that : the meat was sizzling, juicy, super tender, coated in a yummy BBQ
sauce and cooked just enough to give it a crispness on the outside.
To make the meatloaf
, crack 4 eggs in a bowl, separate 2 yolks in a separate
bowl. Beat the eggs and add the chopped bean threads, and minced woodear
mushroom, shallots and meat. Season to taste with salt, pepper, fish sauce and
vegetable oil. Mix well.
Line a square mold/container with food plastic wrap. Add the meat mixture and
steam for 30 minutes. Then open the lid and spread the reserved egg yolks on the
surface of the meatloaf. Steam for another 5 minutes, uncovered, to achieve a
beautiful meatloaf with yellow surface.
To make the oil scallion sauce:
Chop the scallion finely, move to a bowl. Bring some cooking oil to boil in a small
pan then pour over the chopped scallion, mix well.
To assemble the dish:
fluff the cooked broken rice and compress in a bowl. Then
turn it upside down on a plate so that it can come out in a nice shape. Add
cucumber and tomato slices, pork chop, pickled daikon and carrots. Top the rice
and pork chop with some scallion oil and the shredded pig skins. Serve with a bowl
with Vietnamese dipping sauce as you know how to do it.
Bon appétit, my dears.
