Vietnamese Grilled Pork with Noodles – Bún Thịt Nướng

Here’s another way to enjoy the Vietnamese Grilled Pork: Bún Thịt Nướng! (or “dry Phở” like my husband calls it). This noodle salad is very tasty, filling and refreshing. Prep to table in less than 15 minutes by using leftover grilled pork and a handful of fresh ingredients. Simply put everything into a large bowl, mix and done!

The grilled pork, pickled carrots and daikon and the sauce are the key ingredients to this dish. Otherwise we switch up bean sprouts for bell peppers or cabbage from time to time for added flavor and nutrients. 

Đồ Chua – Picked Carrots and Daikon and Nước Chấm – Dipping Sauce are easy to make – takes less than 10 minutes and can last up to 4 weeks! Which means you make them ahead of time to whip up this noodle salad or Bánh Mì in 5-7 minutes tops. Hooray for that!
