Nem Nuong – Vietnamese grilled pork sausage patties

Nem Nuong from The Spice of Life

“It’s hard to resist the aroma of nem nuong during the marinating process . . . the aroma of fresh garlic, the roasted rice powder, the smelly but tasty must-have fish sauce that is essential and ubiquitous in Vietnamese cuisine. Let this sizzle over a pit of charcoal and voila . . . dinner is served.” -(from The Spices of Life).

Nem nuong is Vietnamese grilled pork,  served with noodle salads, or Nem nuong cuon (summer rolls).


Cooking Tips

  • For juicy Nem Nuong, do not you lean ground pork, buy ground pork that has a lot of fat in it.
  • Traditionally, extra port fat (seasoning with sugar) is added to the sausage to make Nem Nuong is more juicy.
