Vietnamese rolls with crispy pork belly
« on: January 09, 2018, 05:56:00 PM »
Today I tried an experiment, that being some Vietnamese rolls with crispy pork belly, pickled cucumber, coriander leaves, pickled carrots and topped with chilli mayo and fire roasted tomato and smoky chipotle relish

Ingredients:

Vietnamese Rolls:
Pack of 6 rolls.
I normally buy 3 packs for a family of 6.
(I slice these on an angle the middle, making sure not to fully cut through)

Crispy Pork Belly:
Pork Belly, at least 1kg
Campbell’s Chinese real soup base
½ cup of course sea salt
1 tablespoon of olive oil
(Marinate the pork belly overnight in the Chinese soup Base, making sure to not cover the skin)

In the morning, take out of the soup base and pat the skin dry and scour the skin with a knife, lay it skin down on a bed of course sea salt and put back into the fridge uncovered for at least 6 hours. This will help dry out the skin of moisture.

Take out of fridge after 6 hours on bed of sea salt and lightly oil and salt again, before putting into preheated Weber, that has two full baskets of charcoal lit and the baskets are on either side of the charcoal grill. Making sure the pork belly is in the centre of the baskets on the cooking grill and cook for around 75 minutes for 1kg of pork belly. Aiming for 71C / 160F internal temp. Allow it to rest for 10 minutes before thinly slicing)

Cucumber Pickle:
2 cucumbers
2 tablespoons of sugar
1 cup rice wine vinegar
(Thinly slice cucumbers. Put sugar in bowl and a small splash of hot water to dissolve, stir in rice wine and add cucumber slices and mix through. Set aside for at least 30 minutes before use)

Pickled Carrots:
2 packets of shredded carrots 200grams each
2 Tablespoons of Caster Sugar
2 teaspoons of salt flakes
4 tablespoons of white balsamic vinegar
(Put sugar in bowl and a small splash of hot water to dissolve, add salt and balsamic in bowl and mix, add carrots and stir through. Set aside for at least 30 minutes before use)

Coriander Leaves:
2 x Coriander Leaves in Packets or 20gms each
Pick leaves off and discard stems)

Chilli Mayo:
½ a cup of Praise Traditional Creamy Mayonnaise
2 tablespoon of Trident Sweet Chilli Sauce
(Mix ingredients)

Baxters Fire Roasted Tomato & Smoky Chipotle Relish

The Build:
Spread some sweet chilli mayo in each bun, add a few slices of pickled cucumber, a few slices of thinly cut pork belly, then some pickled carrots and coriander leaves and top with the relish.


Pork Belly cooked in a Weber Kettle, there is no other flavour or smell that makes people drool



The finished product, these went down so well. The family ate more than I thought they would
It wasn't me......Well maybe it was..

Wow, I've been wanting to do this for a long time and keep seeing cooks for it but this takes the cake for sure! Do the veggies end up like banh mi?

Cheers, yeah I've been so busy drinking over the Christmas break :P I wanted to put my own spin on this as my kids aren't keen on the pate and such. They loved these.

Yeah, pate isn't for everyone. Also, a popular modern take on banh mi uses pork belly so you nailed it!! I want to try making pork belly, thanks for sharing the recipe  :D
