Johnny E!,
I've done that plenty of times! I like to mash up a bit of the egg yolk into the sauce to dip. What can't you roll up in banh trang? :)

Try this (if you have not already). Shred the thit kho up a little and cuon it with some egg in banh trang. Put some of the thit kho sauce in a chen, little extra nuoc mam and a crush a thai bird chili with the back of a spoon. Dip and eat, I love it that way! If you have some rau cai, cuon that in the banh trang too.

My grandma used to make this dish but she doesn't cook anymore. It is one of my favorites. I'm so glad I found your site since I've been wanting to cook more viet dishes on my own. I made this last night with pork belly with skin on, it was delish! Thanks so much! (Do you have a recipe for thit dong?)

L. Bien,
So sweet. What a nice compliment to start off the Lunar New Year. :)

Hi WC! I found your website a while ago and since then, you've been my go to spot for good viet recipes. I don't live that close to my mother and ngoai anymore and getting them to give me a proper recipe is impossible since they don't use recipes and they sure as heck don't measure anything :-p One of these days I'll get the family's version, but until I do, thank you for

2014-01-16T20:16:57.774-08:00

LC,
Thanks!

Phil,
Sounds great! I'm glad the recipe turned out well for you. Thanks for letting me know! Hope you feel better soon.

2014-01-14T06:03:59.597-08:00

Thank you for your reply WC, I have a cold at the moment and made this last night again , I added just 2 star anise. I also had a can of chinese pickled cabbage in the cupboard which I added to my plate at the end. It complimented the dish very well with the added texture and a different taste. A great simple recipe thank you WC!



It makes my mouth water :P

2014-01-01T20:17:14.447-08:00

Phil,
I think the only really "authentic" ingredient that you need is the coconut juice. Otherwise, feel free to make adjustments and add star anise or chilies if you like. I add Chinese 5-spice powder or lemongrass sometimes.

2013-12-30T05:54:32.294-08:00

I have seen this recipe elsewhere and star anise and a red chilli(es) are included, is this still authentic to include these..?

I love the flavour of star anise and the heat of the chilli

Jojo,
Glad the recipe worked for you! See? Just a little experimenting and you can make caramel sauce.

This came out beautifully today. I had picked up some pork shoulder boneless ribs on sale. I had it simmering for 1.0 hour. I also added cabbage but added it too soon so it lost its crunch.

Radish Girl,
Funny how so many Vietnamese start out with this recipe when tackling Vietnamese recipes in general.

Going to try this today! It was a staple in my home growing up! Will let you know how it goes!

2012-02-26T00:06:37.439-08:00

Liz,
Usually the meat has enough moisture that it loosens the caramel, but the caramel crystals are fine since they dissolve when the water is added anyway.

2011-11-04T14:00:16.068-07:00

I tried making the nuoc mau. It turned the same color as yours. When I added in the thit heo into the nuoc, it hardened and became hard caramel crystals. Should I have added in the water first before adding in the meats?

2011-08-21T23:04:22.927-07:00

Khoa,
Yup. That's why I said to adjust to your own preference. Did you know someone made this and added 1/2 cup of fish sauce. Ack! That's too salty. Waaay too salty.

Melissa,
I love comments like yours. So happy your husband and daughter liked it. :)

2011-07-19T13:23:55.309-07:00

Incredible! My hubby's Vietnamese mother used to make this for him all the time when he was younger. One day a while ago he was telling me about this dish with pork and eggs and how much he loved and misses it since he moved across country from them. After much research I found and followed this recipe. He was literally falling over himself and ate it ALL in two days! Our 22month old girl

2011-07-18T14:06:22.506-07:00

Sorry, I just mean that it's gonna be too salty. Yes, it's still braised pork.



Khoa, This is braised pork.

2011-07-13T08:35:13.162-07:00

Khoa,
This is braised pork.

2011-07-10T15:59:44.668-07:00

Hi, I think just adding 3 tsp of fish sauce is enough if you still want to taste the sweetness of coconut juice. Any more will make this more like braised pork.

2011-04-29T23:45:09.762-07:00

Matt,
Jealous! You don't need to make it, you've got way grander adventures.

Hau,
So glad you liked it.

Hi WC!
I've been reading your blog and have finally made something of yours, specifically this recipe. It turned out really well! :) You can see the pics + my comments here: http://dailyhau.posterous.com/23365-i-made-thit-heo-kho-voi-trung-braised-p

Thank you so much for sharing your stories and recipes. I really enjoy what you've written.

2010-10-21T10:41:41.749-07:00

I haven't made this yet but will be sure to when I return home from traveling. I'm in Vietnam at the moment and this, by far, my favourite dish across south east Asia.

Thanks so much for the recipe, I've tried asking the people that make it but my Vietnamese is sorely lacking and I usually end up with nods and blank looks!

I'm glad I stumbled across this
