    Default Vietnamese Banh Cuon (Thanh Tri)

    The results of the rice rolls I posted last night. As I suspected,
    they were too fragile to unravel and use as wrappings. It turns out
    they are for making a sort of banh coun "thanh tri" variant where they
    are not filled, but rather served with toppings/sides.

    So I made the tradition banh coun filling and just used it as a
    topping.

    Rice rolls separated:

    The filling (topping) is made up of chopped shrimp and fatty pork butt
    stir fried with tree fungus, ****ake mushrooms, black pepper, crushed
    garlic, red pepper, and a touch of fish sauce. This is pretty darn
    tasty on it's own.

    The rice sheets with dried shrimp were steamed on my make-shift
    steamer for a mere 3 minutes - 4 minutes would have been too long.
    Then slid onto the plate and topped with fried shallots, chopped
    cashews, the filling mix, and cilantro (which blew off in the wind).

    Garnished with cucumber and julienned carrot, with mam tom chua (sour
    shrimp) and nuoc cham. Oh, and a leftover Viet-grilled pork chop.

    This was most excellent. I have enough filling and rice sheets left
    to make another plate for dinner.

    I'm not a fan of most of what you cooked here, but I do appreciate how
    pretty it all looks. Especially the cucumber! Nice pics!

    I take selected requests, too. But like the Supreme Court, I reserve
    the right decline to take the case.

    Have you ever tried Vietnamese food? It's probably my favorite
    cuisine. I go on ethnic kicks a few times a year. This month is
    Vietnamese month. You haven't seen half the pictures of what I've
    done so far, not here in RFC at least.
