This sauce is for the heat-seekers. It is a common sauce in Thai Cuisine. I have yet to travel to Thailand, but this sauce is supposedly a essential condiment and is common at noodle shops in Thailand. I decided to make this because I love Thai Red Chilis and wanted a way to preserve them in the refrigerator, so thought of pickling them. I put them in so many different dishes, especially noodle in soup dishes. This is a perfect condiment to add to your refrigerator shelf. It'
Bún bò Huế is a spicy beef and pork noodle soup from Central Vietnam. It is not Spicy Pho, I think I’ve heard this before, but no it is not. Pho is the more popular noodle so I can see why people mistaken this for spicy pho, but this one shouldn’t be overlooked. This noodle soup has a robust broth with the perfect balance of spice, tang, salt, and sweetness. Bún is the rice vermicelli which is cylindrical and round, the bò is the beef, and Huế is the city in central Vietnam w

Sorry that the last few posts were not as interesting but I was busy watching Stranger Things. I actually had not watched the first season but I finally decided to give it a try after seeing so many snapchat posts about it. 1 week of watching (after baby fell asleep) we finally finished and anxiously waiting for the 3rd Season. What I thought… Some maybe SPOILERS — Eleven reminded me of Elfen Lied, 2nd Season: Nine-Tailed Beast and Jinchūriki. Back to the recipe, we are final
We are nearing the final recipe. We made the tapioca noodle (Bánh Canh) and the perfect Basic Pork Stock, and now the shrimp paste. This shrimp paste is another building block to our final recipe on Bánh Canh Bột Lọc Cua. This shrimp paste is a perfect addition to these noodles. We used it to make shrimp balls, but feel free to use it how you prefer, may it be fried shrimp cakes, as a filling in dumplings, or whatever your heart desires. How to make this Basic Shrimp Paste Ma
WHAT IS ANNATTO OIL?
It is a oil that Vietnamese people often use to enhance a dish with taste and vibrant red colour. When Annatto seeds are added to oil, they release a beautiful vibrant orange tone to the oil. WHERE CAN YOU BUY ANNATTO SEEDS?
I found them at 88 Supermarket and Chong Lee Market. Annatto Oil Makes 1 cup Ingredients: 1 cup neutral oil 1/3 cup annatto seeds #vietnamese #annattooil
So what is Bánh Canh? Bánh Canh is a type of Vietnamese noodles. These noodles are similar to the Japanese Udon noodles. The noodles are made with tapioca flour and a bit of rice flour. The recipe ratio below is for the Bột Lọc, which is a chewier texture noodle. But if you prefer a tender texture, change the ratio of the flour and add more rice flour and adjust the tapioca starch to less. I prefer a chewier noodle, so the ratio is 2 1/4 cup tapioca starch and a 1/4 cup of ri
Today’s recipe is Bo Kho, it is a fragrant Vietnamese beef stew. The beef is stewed in aromatic spices, vegetables, and then brightened with the fresh taste of herbs and lime juice. WHAT IS MUSHROOM SEASONING AND WHERE TO BUY IT? Mushroom seasoning is made of mushroom powder, salt, and mushroom extract. I opt to use this instead of Chicken Bouillon Powder because I prefer not to use MSG in my cooking if I can. The Mushroom Seasoning was purchased at a Southeast Asian market i

What to eat next is my constant struggle every day. Figuring out my next meal of something delicious, quick to make, and not the same as the day before is always something I deal with on a day-to-day basis. *Sigh* the life of a food lover. I went to the freezer to find a pack of meat to work with for the next day, and pulled out a package of drumsticks. After contemplating on tomorrows meal, I decided on Cà ri gà, because I didn’t have to go to the grocery store for any addit
I had one the best Pho Ga on the streets of Saigon (Ho Chi Minh) city. Before we left to Saigon, we asked several friends of Vietnamese heritage advice for the non-speaking Vietnamese tourists such as myself and my partner. Mainly, we asked about the food, obviously. We were told about an amazing place by the Notre Dame Cathedral that served amazing BBQ Duck Tongue and BBQ Chicken Feet. They thought it might not be for us since it was one of those hole in the wall places with
It’s stewing season and the cold weather calls for comfort food. Today’s recipe is Bo Kho, it is a Fragrant Vietnamese Beef Stew with some French influences. The beef is stewed in gelatin-rich beef stock, aromatic spices, vegetables, and then brightened with the fresh taste of herbs and lime juice. I was craving oxtail and decided to change up the traditional Bo Kho meaty beef with the addition of oxtail. In many recipes online, they include tomatoes in some form or another,
