How to make it

  • Make a sauce by heating the light molasses with two-thirds of the fish sauce in a heavy saucepan, stirring frequently.
  • Transfer it to a bowl, cool a bit, and combine with the garlic, shallot, sugar, and the remaining fish sauce and salt.
  • Add the minced pork, mix thoroughly, then cover and leave to stand for 3 hours
  • Shape the minced pork into little patties, about 1 inch in diameter, place over a preheated grill and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, until cooked through.
  • To serve, divide the noodles between 4 warmed bowls, add the pork, torn lettuce. Top with the sauce.

    Hi Waterlilly, Great post, I just saw a show on the travel channel about fish sauce. (That bald guy that eats everything) I have been wanting to try cooking with it and this sounds like a perfect recipe to get my feet wet.

    According to the show Phu Quoc is known for its fish sauce the world over. Thanks for a great post... Jim

    What I do is go to the ONLY Asian market in my town (which is actually a combination whole foods market/Asian market), and look ignorant but enthusiastic, and ask very politely if the nice lady there could please show me the best...whatever I'm looking for. What I have on hand is Phu Quoc and it is REALLY GOOD STUFF! I use the same ploy to find really good soy sauce, too!
