Cambodian Pork And Rice Recipe

We have fond memories of this simple pork và rice dish we enjoyed on a recent trip lớn Cambodia. We ate this delicious dish at a roadside hawker stand, while sitting on low plastic stools outside a Buddhist temple. This a typical breakfast dish in Cambodia, but stateside, we’re thinking it works better as a quick and satisfying dinner.

The sweet-savory marinade works with chicken thighs as well, by the way. Và regardless of the protein you choose, the meat can be cooked on the stovetop, grilled — as we had it at that hawker stand — or roasted on a foil-lined sheet tray, which is the easiest clean-up & most hands-off method.

The cooked pork also makes for a great filing for a banh mi type sandwich. However, we love it with sticky rice & homemade quick-pickled vegetables. This recipe scales up easily và we recommend making extra. The pork disappears at our house, as family members come by for samples while we’re cooking. Plus leftovers are always a good thing!

Pickled vegetables are easy lớn make at home. We mix sliced or cubed cucumber, carrots & radishes with a generous splash of rice wine vinegar, a pinch of sugar & salt, và minced ginger for extra flavor. Let sit for 10 minutes or more, then serve.
