Rice Rolls Stuffed with Pork Recipe

The Rice Rolls Stuffed with Pork Recipe offers an easy and flavorful option for a homemade Vietnamese side dish. Central to the dish are rice sheets, either steamed or soaked in warm water. If opting for steamed rice paper, a steamer with a round cloth on top is needed to steam the rice flour mixture, highlighting the traditional Vietnamese preparation method.

The filling comprises 25oz of dried cloud ear mushrooms, soaked, washed, and cut into small pieces, combined with 1 lb of ground pork. The pork is seasoned with fish sauce, sugar, vegetable oil, minced garlic, shallots, finely chopped spring onions, and black pepper. The mixture is stir-fried until the pork is cooked, resulting in a flavorful and aromatic filling. Once cooked, the meat mixture is set aside to cool before rolling.

To assemble the Rice Rolls, the rice sheets are laid on a flat surface, and a tablespoon of the pork mixture is spooned onto the middle of each sheet. The rolling process involves folding one side over the filling, tucking in the sides, and rolling to enclose the filling, creating a roll reminiscent of fresh spring rolls. If using fresh steamed rice paper, the rolling process is simplified as it naturally sticks together.

When ready to serve, the rice rolls are arranged on a serving plate, and fried shallots or garlic are added on top. Optional garnishes such as herbs, mint, or basil can also be added for freshness. The finishing touch is a drizzle of sweet fish sauce, adding a delightful balance of sweetness and savory flavors to the Rice Rolls Stuffed with Pork.

In conclusion, this recipe presents a harmonious blend of textures and tastes, showcasing the Vietnamese culinary tradition of creating flavorful and visually appealing dishes. The ease of preparation and the option to customize the filling make this dish an accessible and delightful addition to homemade Vietnamese cuisine.
