Lemongrass sautéed pork rice paper rolls

| Lemongrass sautéed pork rice paper rolls |

Rice paper roll has a similar method of making with spring rolls, however it is much easier to make, and a healthier choice.

you need:
– about 20 rolls of thinly sliced pork that are labelled for hot pot (you can find it from most asian supermarket)
– half tbsp of lemongrass sauce (i used Lee Kum Kee)
– half tsp sugar
– few thinly sliced garlic
– few pieces of lettuce
– about 5 pieces of rice paper (size s)

you will:
1. defrost the pork and marinate with the lemongrass sauce and sugar for a bout a few hours
2. stir fry the pork at medium heat with the garlic slices. you don’t need to use oil because the pork itself it’s fatty enough.
3. wash and pat dry the lettuce and put it aside, soak the rice paper into hot water to soften, then place lettuce and pork to wrap it all together.

The best is to use smaller pieces of lettuce, not any bigger than the size of your palm, just so it is easier to wrap with the size small rice paper.  Using size small rice paper is more ideal for finger food for party and lunch box for pinics.

Feel free to insert more veggies like julienned cucumbers, beansprouts or mint leaves for a more refreshing taste.

If you’re worried about consuming raw beansprouts, you can quickly cook a little bit in hot boiling water than drain in cold water.

 

|香茅豬肉米紙卷|

喜歡吃越南美食的都會知道除了有春卷之外還有比較健康的米紙卷。米紙卷比起春卷較為容易製作,適合夏天或者野餐,需要的材料和準備功夫都比較簡單和健康。

材料:
-大約20卷打邊爐用的豬肉卷
-半湯匙香茅醬
-少許糖
-幾片蒜
-幾片生菜
-大約5張細碼米紙

做法:
1. 先將豬肉解凍然後跟香茅醬、少許糖醃大約幾個小時
2. 不需要用任何油(因為豬肉本身已經有很多肥膏啊!)利用幾片蒜爆香煮熟,然後放涼
3. 最後將生菜洗淨抹乾待用,然後利用熱水將米紙泡軟,然後放上生菜和已經放涼的豬肉再包好,即成!

建議大家最好利用較為小片的生菜,這樣會比較容易包好;至於米紙方面,喜歡小份量或者個人份量的可以選用細碼米紙。選用細碼米紙的話,材料方面不適宜過多,只需要一片不大過手掌的生菜加入幾片豬肉就可以了,如果喜歡清新口感的可以加入幾條青瓜絲、一至兩片薄荷葉和少許生芽菜,不過擔心生芽菜衛生問題的可以先放進熱水灼一灼,放涼才跟材料捲在一起。
