You Can Bánh Tráng Anything – Exhibit One: Spicy Korean Pork

In the March 20th Case of bánh tráng-ing anything, would the jury with please direct their attention to Exhibit 1: Spicy Korean Pork Bánh Tráng.

Still not the most outrageous thing to be rolled up in a tapioca rice wrapper but does cross some international borders. For detailed instructions and tutorial on wrapping with rice paper please visit this blog post.


  • Pre-marinated spicy Korean pork (I buy this en-mass at Korean grocery stores and freeze in meal size portions)
  • Lettuce
  • Herbs (e.g. basil, mint, cilantro)
  • Bean sprouts
  • Carrots
  • Apple or pineapples
  • Noodles (if you want)
  • Banh trang
  • Nuc mum (fish sauce for dipping)
  • Cucumber
  • Sky’s the limit, add some kimchi if you are feeling randy


  • Cook spicy pork. I like to broil on a tinfoil lined pan, so that there are some burnt crunchy bits and clean up is a breeze
  • Roll it up!
  • Eat!
