According to a friend who visited Joe & I in Saigon from England last year, this dish was his “#1 yummy” Vietnamese meal. It’s also one of Joe’s favorites.
I’ll begin with fresh cubes of semi-firm tofu. Each tofu block will be slit and stuffed with my home-made mixture of ground pork, shallots and various Vietnamese herbs and spices. The pork-stuffed tofu will be slowly simmered in tomato and fish sauce broth. I’ll serve this over a bed of Vietnamese broken rice.
Along side, I’m including a serving of sautéed Asian greens and salted-egg. Major Yum!
