Vietnamese Grilled Pork Vermicelli Noodle (Bún Thịt Nướng)

The birds are chirping and it’s getting warmer and sunnier outside, Spring time! I’ve been craving a Spring time Vietnamese dish – Vietnamese Grilled Pork Vermicelli Noodle (Bún Thịt Nướng). It’s like a salad with grilled pork on top of rice noodles. Very refreshing and tasty!
What you’ll need for the grilled pork:
Pork shoulder/butt (I used about 1lb.)
Garlic, shallots, salt, black pepper, soy sauce, & fish sauce. Slice pork into small pieces about 2-3 inches in size & quarter inch thick (don’t slice too thin cause it will dry the meat when it’s grilled).

Add all of above ingredients, mix well, cover, and let marinate. I left it to marinate in fridge till next day. But it could be ready to grill in about 1-2 hours.

Before starting to prepare the pork for grilling, I put a pot of water to boil and added the rice vermicelli noodle to cook.

Weave pork slices onto skewers for grilling.

Place pork skewers on grill at low/med heat so it doesn’t burn the meat and will cook thoroughly. Check & turn them as they grill to get even grilling on both sides.


While the pork is grilling, prepare your veggies: lettuce, cilantro, bean sprout, cucumber, and any other you prefer. I actually forgot to add the pickled carrot & daikon I had made the other day! I also made some scallion warmed in some olive oil and crushed peanuts to top off the dish.

Serve with some Vietnamese prepared fish sauce (nước mắm/nước chấm).
