250 g. pork tenderloin
2 green onions
4-5 sprigs cilantro
1/4 cup mint leaves
1 1/2 Tbsp lime juice
1 1/2 Tbsp thin soy sauce (or rish sauce)
2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp ground dried chillies
1 Tbsp ground roasted rice
1. Preheat oven at 350° F. Clean pork tenderloin, pat dry, pierce with fork, put it on a rack, place a rack on a tray, then bake for 20 minutes.
2. Peel shallots, cut green onion and cilantro roots, cut mint stem, wash dirt, and pat dry. Finely slice shallots, coarsely slice green onion and cilantro, then pick only mint leaves from stems.
3. Prepare spicy dressing by mixing lime juice, thin soy sauce (or fish sauce) sugar, and ground dried chillies in a mixing bowl. Taste for your own flavour. When the pork is done, cit it into thin strips about 1" wide.
4. In a large mixing bowl, mix sliced roasted pork with sliced shallots, green onion, cilantro, and 1/4 cup mint leaves, toss well. Then add spicy dressing and ground roasted rice, toss thoroughly.
5. Spoon the spicy pork salad onto a serving plate, sprinkle with the remaining mint leaves, then serve immediately with Steamed Glutinous Rice.
Tip: This recipe can substitute pork tenderloin for beef tenderloin.
