Spring Rolls with Sesame Ponzu Vinaigrette


by: Just One Cookbook

I love Vietnamese cuisine. On most weekends, my family will eat Pho Noodle at least once for one of the meals. One of my favorite Vietnamese dish are rice paper rolls. When I lived in Oakland during the college years, I would often go to Le Cheval and enjoy their delicious rice paper rolls. This particular recipe is Japanese version of the rice paper roll, instead of fish sauce the dipping sauce is ponzu based.

1.  Cut the sliced pork belly into 1.5-2 inch pieces and vegetables into thin strips.

2.  Grate Daikon and ginger. Combine Dipping Sauce ingredients in a small bowl and mix well.

3.  In a large non-stick frying pan, heat oil on high heat. When oil is hot, add the meat and sprinkle Konbucha. Cook the meat until it becomes crispy. Use paper towel to absorb excess oil and transfer to a plate.

4.  Serve all the toppings on plates/bowls.

5.  In a large bowl, pour very hot water. Holding the rice paper by the edge, rotate it in hot water 3 times (like a spinning wheel) and put it on a plate. The rice paper will be soft from the hot water.

6.  Put the toppings in this order: one piece of red leaf lettuce, one shiso, a few pieces of pork belly, veggies, the egg, and then lastly pour a bit of the sauce on top.

7.  Start wrapping all the toppings with the bottom center.

8.  Fold the sides and continue rolling the rice paper. The edge will stick together naturally. I’m not very good with wrapping “beautifully” so I need to work on that artistic skill.
