This Vietnamese recipeis a favourite in Vietnam.The clean fresh flavours of vermicelli noodles, pork, and lots of herbs are held together by the rice paper. A great starter to make and share with friends.
Bì is made with thin strips of pork, pork skin and tossed with roasted rice powder. What I love about bì is the beautiful aroma of the roasted rice powder. The strips of pork skin doesn’t have much taste but gives the dish a nice texture (my kids called them noodles). I love the gooeyness of the melted pork skin served on hot rice with spring onion oil.
Vietnamese Pork Rice Paper Rolls (Bì Cuốn) is rice paper rolls filled with bì, vermicelli noodles, fresh herbs, lettuce and cucumber, and dipped with fish sauce. Bì makes a delicious filling in these refreshing rolls.
