THIS IS A TRADITIONAL DISH I FOUND IN MANY RESTAURANTS IN HUE. IF YOU FEEL THAT USING PORK FAT IS A BIT NAUGHTY, DON’T OMIT IT; JUST USE LESS. THE PORK FAT ROLLED WITH THE BEEF WILL GIVE ADDED TENDERNESS TO THE MEAT AND RELEASES SO MUCH EXTRA FLAVOUR.

THIS IS THE TYPE OF DISH THAT VIETNAMESE LIKE TO ASSEMBLE AT THE TABLE. PUT THE PLATTERS OF MEAT, FRESH HERBS AND VEGETABLES ON THE TABLE, AND MAKE EACH ROLL, ONE AT A TIME, AS YOU EAT IT.
