The other day I made Vietnamese vermicelli bowl, bún thịt nướng with chicken! 🙂
In Korea we enjoy variety of different types of cold noodles in summer time, such as Bibimgooksu, Nangmyeon, Memealsoba, cold udon and etc. But I never knew some other kinds like this one from Vietnamese until I came to America! It was literally falling in love at the first sigh. I already love love love any kind of cold noodles, and actually in Korean we eat spicy and tangy cold noodles with bbq meat too. Not serving together in a bowl as Vietnamese but we actually eat as a same concept though. Maybe that’s why I loved it so much, the idea of all in one bowl! lol
Because I was making with chicken this time, I wanted to try a bit different. I use basically same marinate as coconut pork, but this time I didn’t add coconut water. And Additionally I added turmeric and lemon grass. Turned out AMAZING!!!
Marinate at least 20 minutes to over night. It is just SO Yummy as it is!!!
You can grill it, broil it in the oven or pan fry it. Whatever method works best for you. I did stir fry this time. 🙂
Meanwhile, get your green ready~!! Obviously there are no rules but make sure you have plenty of herbs, such as cilantro, basil, mint, perilla and etc. Cucumber is great addition for extra crunch, green lettuces are great here too!
In a serving bowl, place greens then cooked rice vermicelli, chicken and Vietnamese pickled carrot (Đồ Chua). When I make Đồ Chua, I like to use carrot and daikon.
Finally sprinkle with roasted peanut. I like to crush peanut then roast them. so they are beautifully golden brown like so. It’s my personal preference, so you don’t have to. But unless you have peanut allergy, you’ve got to add some roasted peanut right on top, makes it SO SO delicious!!!
Serve with Vietnamese most popular dressing (dipping sauce), Nước chấm.
Pour over the sauce right on top of everythang!!!!!!! ahhhh just looking at it, makes me hungry again…
Probably make this dish VERY soon again, for sure!! 🙂
Hope you’re ready for summer with this deliciously cool vermicelli bowl!! 😀
Love you all~!!
