Charred pork bánh mì salad Donal Skehan

Serves 4

500g pork tenderloin, thinly sliced
2 tbsp caster sugar
1 tbsp fish sauce
3 garlic cloves
Bunch of spring onions, white parts chopped
and green parts shredded
3-4 carrots, peeled and julienned
or grated
1 red chilli, finely chopped
75ml rice wine vinegar
1 romaine lettuce, shredded
½ cucumber, peeled, deseeded and sliced
Bunch of fresh coriander, leaves picked

  1. Put the pork in a dish. Whizz half the sugar, the fish sauce, garlic and the white parts of the spring onions in a mini food processor with a splash of water to make a paste. Pour over the meat and turn to coat; set aside.
  2. Put the carrots and chilli in a small bowl. Heat the rice wine vinegar with an equal amount of water and the rest of the sugar and pour over the top. Set aside.
  3. Heat a frying pan or griddle pan over a high heat and cook the pork for about 10 minutes in batches, turning, until lightly charred and cooked through. Set aside to rest.
  4. Put the lettuce and cucumber into a salad bowl. Drain the pickled carrots, add to the salad and mix well. Top with the charred pork, coriander leaves and the finely shredded green parts of the spring onions.
