Having just been to Vietnam and as we are taking a foodie group there in 2020, I planted some Vietnamese herbs when I got home. And I am so glad I did. They are plentifully available in Asian grocers, but to whip outside and pick them is pretty fun. I am in LOVE with Vietnamese mint. It is so different, not at all minty to be honest and it imparts a flavour unique to Vietnamese cuisine. So plant it or buy it, but don't do this recipe without it! I am finding that I love it in all watch're going to see it on here again! (And possibly again!)

Cut the pork steaks into thin strips, and marinate in the soy sauce for 1 hour.


Fry pork over a high heat until browned and cooked. Set aside.


Cook rice noodles as per instructions. Drain and cool. Add to the cooked pork.


Roast peanuts in a 200°C oven for exactly 10 minutes. Cool and roughly chop.


Place all salad ingredients into a large bowl.


Place all dressing ingredients into the Thermomix bowl and blend 10 sec/speed 8.


Add some of the dressing to the pork and noodles and stir to combine. Add the pork, noodle mix to the salad on demand (to keep the salad crunchy it is best not to add all of the dressing at once.)


Serve with the salad and sprinkle with peanuts.
