Grilled Vietnamese Pork

Have you ever been to a Vietnamese restaurant for the first time and was too intimidated to try the “Phở” section? I know, it can sound a little crazy, with the descriptions; bloody rare beef, beef balls, tripe, tendons, and so on…So instead you opt for something that you can understand. Grilled beef and chicken on rice. Simple enough. Its amazing how tasty the meat is right? Well I was not familiar with lemongrass until I ate this dish. It is surprisingly a lot easier to prepare at home than you think. Try it out, I bet you’ll stop going to that Viet restaurant. Unless your feeling adventurous and plan to order a bowl of “Phở.”
