As previously written, I was in the process of making my first new recipe for 2015: Bun Cha. I had already marinated the meat and bought the rice noodles. (Luckily the noodles are available here in Legazpi!) So finally time for the actual cooking!
I was in a mad rush to prepare the food because my food tasters were hungry : Mart and Pop.
So with the aid of my kitchen helpers I set to work to:
1. Shred the carrots with a cheese grater
2. Chop the coriander (which luckily there was stock in Robinsons Supermarket)
3. Pound the peanuts to tiny pieces
4. Cook the noodles (use boiling water and the noodles should be well hydrated/cooked in 10 minutes)
5. Shred the lettuce to bite size pieces
6. Mold the meat and cook in a cast-iron pan
7. Blanche the bean sprouts
8. ASSEMBLE THE MASTERPIECE!
Now to commence the final part of the recipe: assembly of the salad. There is no art to how I placed the dish together -- I was too hungry to make it overly designed a-la Master Chef-- but the simple rule of layering all the components apply. I had originally placed the greens, sprinkled a little of the carrots, cucumber and bean sprouts. After which I placed a heaping amount of noodles and topped it off with the pork and more vegetables.
(Our bowls at home are too small to house the entire dish but I tried anyway. In the end we dumped all the contents on the plate to eat with all gusto. )
I then drizzled the dressing on top and the dish was finished!
