    • 2 tablespoons of sugar
    • 1 tablespoon of lime juice

Preparation Steps

  1. Prepare the Egg Roll Filling: In a large bowl, mix the ground pork, shredded carrots, shredded cabbage, minced onion, garlic, fish sauce, soy sauce, salt, and pepper until well combined.
  2. Assemble the Egg Rolls: Place an egg roll wrapper on a clean surface. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the filling onto the wrapper. Fold the sides over the filling, then roll up tightly. Seal the edge with a dab of water.
  3. Prepare the Dressing: In a small bowl, mix fish sauce, water, sugar, lime juice, minced garlic, and chopped chili (if using) until the sugar is dissolved. Set aside.

Cooking Instructions

  1. Fry the Egg Rolls: Heat oil in a deep pan over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, carefully add the egg rolls, a few at a time. Fry until golden brown and crispy, about 4-5 minutes. Remove and drain on paper towels.
  2. Cook the Vermicelli Noodles: Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the vermicelli noodles and cook according to package instructions, usually about 3-4 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking process.

Serving Suggestions

  1. Assemble the Noodle Bowl: In individual serving bowls, place a generous portion of cooked vermicelli noodles. Top with shredded lettuce, bean sprouts, cucumber slices, and fresh herbs. Add 2-3 crispy egg rolls on top, either whole or cut into bite-sized pieces.
  2. Garnish and Serve: Sprinkle crushed peanuts over the top and drizzle with the prepared dressing. Serve immediately and enjoy the combination of flavors and textures.
