    *** Making Moc vermicelli Soup
    Step 1: Use spoon to scoop each grinded pork and roll to circle shape (you can add a little salt + sugar and sliced spring onion before making this step). Then add a little sliced black fugus around it. Next, put it into hot water, cook about 5 minutes and put it out immediately. When serving, you add some grinded pork rolls on the face of vermicelli.

    -If you love fried food, instead of boiling it, you can fry grinded pork rolls. Or you can choose both ways to making this step.
    Step 2: Making Broth: Boil 2,5 liter cold water + a little salt + sugar + sliced white onion. Wait till the water get hot, add pork chop + chicken into pot with medium heat. Like many other Vietnamese Food recipes, with this step, do not cover the pot, the broth will turn blur and look not delicious.
    Cook about 45 – 60 minutes and put chicken  and pork chop out of broth. Taste broth again to suit with your flavor.
    -From my experiences, if you want to keep the chiken meat color still white, after put it out of pot, put it immediately into cold water about 3 minute. And then you tear chicken meat to small pieces.
    Finally, you finish Moc Vermicelli Soup recipe. Next, I will show you the way to serve it. Put a little vermicelli into bowl, add chicken + pork chop + grinded pork rolls (fried or boiled, it depends on you) + pepper + parsley + spring onion + fried shallot + persicaria leave. Next, pour hot broth into bowl and you can serve it now.

    Moreover, you should use this dish with Shrimp Paste, lemon juice, chili, bean sprout, sliced banana flower, ong choy, fish sauce and chili paste. I hope you like this recipe. And do not miss our next posts, it is all about Vietnamese Food recipes for you. Good Luck.
