Fried Tomato with Minced Pork (Cà Chua Chiên với Thịt Bằm) is one of best Vietnamese Pork Recipes I learnt from my mother-in-law. Well, perhaps not exactly learnt but she cooked it and I ate it. Recently, we had a few tomatoes lying in the fridge and I thought why not give it a try. I did not ask my mother-in-law for the recipe and tried to cook it to resemble the one she cooked and it turned out quite alright.
It is a simple dish, and takes just a couple of minutes to prepare and cook. Actually, you just need to cook the minced pork. The amount of time for the stir frying of the tomato is pretty much up to you. The longer you cook it, the softer it becomes. If you prefer it firmer, just give it a few stirs to coat it with the sauce. Try for cooking one of stunning Vietnamese Pork Recipes with us.
