Com Tam Suon Grilled Pork Chop Challenge

15 May

One of my favorite non-soup dishes at Vietnamese restaurants is the  rice plate with charred grilled meats, do chua (pickled vegetables), rice and quiche. The flavors are so tasty and more satisfying than the noodle counterpart of bun vermicelli bowls. In restaurants these will be listed under “Rice Platter” or “Com Tam“, which means “broken rice”.

While we were enjoying Com Tam Suon and Bun Thit Bo at one of our fav restaurants Viet Crystal, I decided it would be my next recipe experiment. After scouring the Internet, I found two options that would be viable competitors.

The first from ever-reliable Ravenous Couple and the second – albeit not quite the same – a Thit Heo Nuong Ngu Vi Huong (Grilled Garlickly Five Spice Pork Steaks) from  Into the Vietnamese Kitchen. OK, not the same at all – except from the Grilled Pork part, which is the most important aspect. Either way, both recipes were oh so simple and required no new ingredients. Except for the swine, of course.

Doesn’t this look amazing? It was. You should make it, too.
