Vietnamese Noodle Salad สลัดเวียดนาม - Episode 160

Vietnamese Noodle Salad สลัดเวียดนาม - Episode 160

Vietnamese Noodle Salad สลัดเวียดนาม(bún gà nướng) is one of those classic dishes that has made Vietnamese food popular around the world. I have been getting this dish at a local Vietnamese restaurant for a few years now and I finally decided to make it myself. I am really glad that I did, because this recipe is amazing. It's going to have a permanent place in my rotation. Since I am Thai, I tend to like my food a little spicy. The original restaurant version of this dish isn't spicy at all, so I was happy to add a Thai pepper and bring a little heat in the dressing. It was just enough to give a small hint of heat, without taking away from any of the fresh flavors.

Thai Spicy Egg Salad ยำไข่ต้มหมูสับ - Episode 154

Thai Spicy Egg Salad ยำไข่ต้มหมูสับ - Episode 154

You didn't think I was going to let all those eggs from my last recipe to go waste did you? Of course, I wouldn't do that. Thai Spicy Egg Salad is nothing like the egg salad that you might be familiar with. No mayonnaise or relish here. This Thai Spicy Egg Salad Recipe is something totally different, but totally awesome too. With runny yolks and fully cooked whites, these eggs are super creamy. I topped these eggs off with sour, sweet, and spicy minced pork. This recipe is fairly easy and quick to make. If you're an egg lover, then you will love this recipe. This egg dish is one of my Top-3 egg recipes.

Cabbage Rolls - Episode 132

Cabbage Rolls - Episode 132

Cabbage Rolls are one of those dishes that everyone can appreciate. Cabbage Rolls as a recipe are as versatile as it gets. I have had European style cabbage rolls, North African style cabbage rolls, and as you might have guessed, my favorite, Asian style cabbage rolls. This recipe is my take on a classic Asian Cabbage Roll. Not only is it healthy, but it is full of flavor, a combination that some people might think is hard to find when talking about veggies. I hope that you give this recipe a try and that you enjoy it as much as I did.
