Ingredients

For the grilled pork:

  • 1 lb pork chops, loin, butt or shoulder. Sliced thin.
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 shallots, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper or to taste
  • 1/4 cup peanut or vegetable oil

Hoisin Peanut Dipping Sauce Recipe:

  • 1 cup 8 oz hoisin sauce (if sauce is thick, add about 1/4 cup warm water to reach desired consistency)
  • 1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 2 garlic, crushed
  • 1 minced thai chili or more for desired spiciness

For spring roll rice paper assembly:

  • About 10 rice paper wrappers
  • Lettuce
  • Cucumber, cut into long slices
  • : mint, cilantro, basil, vietnamese coriander, balm or perilla
  • Bean sprouts

Instructions

  1. In plastic bag, combine all ingredients for the grilled pork. Let marinade for about 20 minutes. Grill both sides of pork for about 2-3 minutes, or until desired texture.
  2. In blender, combine all ingredients for the hoisin peanut dipping sauce. Blend until everything combines smoothly together. If it is too thick, continue adding warm water until desired consistency.
  3. In bowl of warm water, dip each rice paper wrapper for about 3-5 seconds (depending on rice paper thickness). Do not over soak your rice paper wrapper! Place on work service and allow rice paper to soak up water and become gelatinous and pliable (about 30 seconds to 1 minute, again, depending on the thickness rice paper).
  4. On top 1/3 side closest to you, lay lettuce on the bottom for added strength to the wrapper. Then place meat, herbs and other vegetables. Roll up spring roll about 1/3 way through, then fold in the sides. View step-by-step photographs of spring rolling here.

  5. Serve with hoisin peanut dip.
