This Vietnamese Pork with Lemongrass & Chilli brings together some of my most favourite flavours. Lemongrass is a thing of wonder - such a fantastic aroma and so versatile in the cuisines of South East Asia. From enhancing curries like my delicious Thai Yellow Curry with Minced Pork or the decadent and impossibly tasty Indonesian Beef Rendang and the absolute perfection that is Malaysian Prawn Laksa - lemongrass sits centre stage.
Salty. Sweet. Sour. Spice.
Generally speaking, Vietnamese food is simple, fresh and flavoursome. It's milder in spice than its neighbour Thailand, opting instead for the heady aromatics of lemongrass, herbs, salty fish sauce and the sweetness of sugar. These four flavour profiles are the perfect marriage of salty, sweet, sour and at times a little spice. Vietnamese food is a fresh burst of flavour - you can feel the goodness with every bite.
A simple Vietnamese pork stir-fry that delivers big flavour
This stir fry delivers on flavour - in fact it's quite the powerhouse. And - it's really very simple to cook. The whole thing is ready in 20 minutes. The time it takes for the rice to cook. That makes it perfect for a tasty lunch or mid-week dinner. Are you ready to surrender to the delicious world of Vietnamese food?
