New Chua, Vietnamese Fermented Pork Squares


nem chua, vietnamese fermented pork, vietnamese food, vietnamese snack, vietnamese appetizer

I love eating this, any day of the week, any time of the year, even against my mother’s wishes because she says raw meat isn’t good for me. (Don’t tell her I eat a lot of sushi.)

Anyway, this is called nem chua, or fermented pork, made mainly from minced pork thigh, sliced pigskin and seasoning. These ingredients are mixed thoroughly, topped with a piece of raw garlic and jalapeno, then wrapped with aromatic, fresh leaves (usually in banana leaves) into small, boxy rolls before being stored for a natural fermentation process for three to five days in a cool place before eating. The taste is sweet, sour, spicy, and oh-so-yum!

You can find these at fast food places and bakeries like Banh Mi Che Cali and Teo Sandwiches, and eat these pretty much any time of the day as a snack. Just don’t forget to chew a piece of gum or pop a mint afterwards. 😀
