Vietnamese Chicken Curry (Ca Ri Ga)

Every country has their own curry, but I, a full-fledged Vietnamese, am not biased at all when I say that the Vietnamese curry is the best one there is. It's not too pungent in spices. It's not too aromatic that it's overpowering and it's not too thick. It’s simply a warm and delicious bowl of tender chicken in a rich curry stewed with potatoes. Served over steamed white rice or as a dipping sauce for toasted baguettes, it’s the perfect meal for these cold winter days.

Vietnamese Caramelized Chicken with Ginger with Coconut Soda/Juice (Ga Kho Gung)

One of my favorite family meals is chicken-based. One whole chicken can be made easily into two dishes. My go-to soup in the Fall is Kabocha Squash Soup with Chicken (Canh Ga Nau Bi Do). The rest of the chicken is caramelized/braised with lots of ginger into a dish that we call Ga Kho Gung.

Vietnamese Caramelized Pork Spare Ribs (Suon Khia or Suon Ram Man)

Vietnamese Caramelized Pork Spare Ribs (Suon Khia or Suon Ram Man) is a classic Vietnamese side dish. Without it (or a similar side dish), a Vietnamese home-cooked meal is incomplete. In this dish, the pork spare rib is slowly braised in coconut juice until fall-of-the-bone tender. The liquid is then cooked off at the end, reducing to a sweet and savory glaze.

Vietnamese Caramelized Pork Belly with Fermented Shrimp Paste (Thit Kho Mam Ruoc)

Mam Ruoc is Vietnamese fermented shrimp paste, a staple condiment in Southeast Asian cuisines. It can also be effectively used to disperse a crowd.

Mam Ruoc is highly pungent in its raw form and the reason many Asians have outdoor kitchens. It is made from a mixture of ground shrimp and salt that has been left to ferment in the hot sun. lt's a salty condiment that's added to many different dishes and sauces. You wouldn't expect this jar of pungent-smelling ground shrimp to taste any good, but it acts in the same as anchovy paste. A little goes a long way and once cooked with aromatics, the taste is surprisingly well-rounded, bringing tons of umami flavor to a dish.

Vietnamese Beef Stew Recipe (Bo Kho)

Vietnamese Beef Stew, or Bò Kho, was one of the very first dishes my mother-in-law taught me to cook after seeing the disastrous results when left on my own. My first attempt at Bò Kho resulted in an impenetrable thick stew with chewy, borderline inedible, meat. I had the flavor right but everything else was, as my mother-in-law put it, nhìn thê thảm.

Vietnamese Caramelized Pork (Thit Kho To)

Vietnamese Braised Pork and Pineapple (Thit Kho Thom)

Pork and pineapples go wonderfully together. There are many dishes from different countries that include these two ingredients. In Vietnam, we braise pork belly or pork shoulder with pineapples in a clay pot with fish sauce and a thick caramel sauce for color. The dish is savory with a hint of sweetness and it's great with white rice.
