Tasty Food-Lousy Picture

Have you heard that expression, “We eat first with the eyes”? The picture of this dish will not inspire salivation but I’m here to tell you that it was mighty tasty nevertheless.

Vietnamese Pork Rolls

Make dressing:

2 T Asian fish sauce
2 T fresh lime juice
2 t minced ginger
1 clove garlic minced
Pinch red pepper flakes

Whisk together in small bowl.


1 lb really thin cut boneless pork chops
1/2 head Savoy cabbage shredded (or Napa cabbage)
1 small red pepper cut in strips
4 scallions chopped
8 large Boston lettuce leaves for wrapping

Heat skillet sprayed with Pam or whatever, quickly sauté pork-2 min each side or so) Remove and slice into thin strips, toss with 2 T sauce

Combine cabbage, red pepper, and onion and remaining dressing. Lay lettuce leaves out and divide pork among the leaves. Toss with cabbage mixture and roll tightly, tucking in as you go. They are a bit delicate and fall apart easily and don’t photograph so well but they are yummy!


  1. yum - what accompanied the wraps?

  2. Redskin potatoes leftover from the shrimp boil, smashed with butter and sour cream and a radish, cucumber, feta salad.

  3. what an eclectically fab meal!! Can I come over? also, I want that shopping cart.
