I love these delicious fresh, flat rice noodle rolls that can be filled with a wonderful selection of goodies: like meat or seafood, vegetables, eggs, fresh greens and herbs. Serve the rolls with a nice, nuoc cham dipping sauce, a sweet and sour dipping sauce, or a spicy fish sauce.

  • 2
    Put a wok or a pan on medium heat and add 1 - 1 1/2 tbsp oil. Fry in small batches until all the meat is done. When the oil is hot, add the beef and stir fry for 1 minute per side until the meat is browned. Remove from heat and set aside until needed.

    Place your prepared vegetables and choice of herbs on a plate, keep them separated for easier accessibility, and set aside until needed.

    ASSEMBLING: Now you are ready to roll. Place one flat rice noodle sheet on a chopping board or on a large plate, with the shorter end at the bottom.
  • 5
    At the base of the noodle sheet add a lettuce leaf, herbs, peanuts, beef, slices of onion, carrot and cucumber.

    Roll up towards the top making a nice tight roll; you don't want the filling to fall out. Repeat until all ingredients have been used.
