I almost made it to Spirited, but it ended too soon. I had this really neat idea of making a hollow fattie and filling it with an alcoholic beverage, but I didn't see how I could make it work. I think I'm out of town most of the next three weeks, so if you can extend this one to the end of May, we should be good!

Default Official TD Entry: Pork Noodle Bowl

For five years I worked in a building that had a great Vietnamese restaurant in the basement. During the winter my co-workers and I would eat Pho there at least once a week if not more often. During the summer we enjoyed these great noodle bowls that they made. I unexpectedly had the afternoon off yesterday and the weather was perfect outside, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to try and replicate one of those noodle bowls.

I started with a two pound pork loin


That I cut into about 1/4 inch slices


I then created a marinade using Braggs amino, fish sauce, hoisin, mirin, garlic, ginger, scallion, cilantro and serrano pepper.


Took the stick blender to it and then put it and the pork into a ziploc so they could get to know each other a little better.


While the pork was marinating I took the pup down to the lake for her first "off-leash" trip (kept her on a drag line) to the park. (Yeah I'm using the cute dog crutch, I've got it now so I'm going to use it.)


At this point she's more confused by the lake then anything and more interested in her squeaky shoe than swimming.

When I got home I took a mandolin to some carrot, cucumber and radish


Then salted them and put them in strainer with a weight on top to draw out moisture and improve their texture.

After the pork had marinated for about 3 hours I built a screaming hot fire in the OTS and grilled the pork for about a minute per side. No pics of them cooking cause it was happening too quickly for my to fark around with the camera.

Once the got nice grill marks and a touch of char I pulled them off to rest


Took my favorite instrument of kitchen destruction to it


And ended up with a pile of chopped pork goodness


To plate it up I put down a bed of rice noodles, then some veg, a pile of pork and some chopped peanuts, then drizzled it with a dressing I made of olive oil, sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, ginger, garlic and scallion.
Entry Pic


This didn't last long

the final bite of these is always the best with a perfect mixture of all the ingredients.

These were a great replica of the dish that inspired them. A wonderful mix of textures and balance of salty, sweet and spicy flavors.

Thanks for looking.
