Lemongrass Pork Chop Cucumber Recipe
Thit heo nuong xa —Vietnamese lemongrass grilled pork chops—are one of the easiest Vietnamese restaurant dishes to replicate at home. You don't need the special bread required for a good banh mi . You don't need to spend hours constructing a delicately aromatic broth, like with pho. This is a dish that takes maybe half an hour of active work, at most. All you need is a few common ingredients for the marinade—shallots, lemongrass, garlic, sugar, pepper, and fish sauce—some thinly sliced pork chops, and a nice, hot fire.
