Vietnamese ‘Pork’ Noodle Bowl

Yield: Serves 4

Equipment Needed: box grater, peeler

Our trip to Vietnam left a lasting mark on our inspiration in the kitchen. Our Pit Boss BBQ Bahn Mi was just the start. This Pork Noodle Bowl highlights the bright, bold flavors found in Vietnamese cuisine. As if the flavors bursting with fresh, salty and sweet weren’t enough, it’s also the most photogenic bowl you’ll ever see. Get your chopsticks ready for this bad boy.
