These Vietnamese Pork Bun Bowls (Bún) are easy to throw together on a busy weeknight and only take about 20 minutes (minus marinating time). They have the same fresh, savory, sweet, and umami-rich flavor as at your favorite Vietnamese restaurant, but incorporate a few shortcuts to make them extra quick and easy to make at home. What is your favorite kind of Asian food? I've thought long and hard about this. I'm hesitant to commit, since they are all so different from each other, but I am almost 100% certain for me it's Vietnamese. The flavors are always so fresh and bright, especially from the use of fresh herbs. The dishes are usually very light yet satisfying, and I never feel weighed down after eating them.

The central Vietnamese city of Hue, once the capital of Vietnam and still known as the Imperial City, has a distinctive cuisine full of diminutive rolls, savory pancakes, dumplings, skewers and other snacky bites. Standing in contrast is the mighty Bun Bo Hue, a soup that starts with pork and beef bones, gets a kick from lemongrass, annatto and shrimp paste, and finishes the job with a tangle of herbs, a squeeze of lime and a few delicious add-ons like sliced brisket, crab balls and, in some cases, cubes of congealed pig’s blood. We dove deep into the dish's history, and found a recipe from of all places, Brooklyn.
