Vietnamese Ham or Meat ball

Vietnamese Ham or Meat Ball

Vietnamese ham is very popular in many Vietnamese recipes.  You can make Banh Mi Sandwich, Banh Cuon, Noodle Soup, Salad, make to meat ball for soup  or just eat it as a snack kids eat with rice and soy sauceJ
You need to have good pork to make this ham like pork loin.

2 ½ lbs pork loin cut to small pieces
2 T of fish sauce
1 t of garlic powder
1 t of onion powder
1/2 t of black or white pepper
1 T of sugar

wet ingredients
2/3 cup of warm water
1 T of baking power
1 T of tapioca starch
mix and set aside
Note: you can use 1 T garlic salt and 1 t onion salt but don’t use fish sauce

In a food processor grind all the ingredients to paste (I mean really fine paste or else it won’t work)
when the meat turn to paste add the wet ingredients and blend until all combine.
Take out good quality clear plastic wrap and divide your meat into 4 small loaves. Wrap each loaf with 3 layers of plastic wrap very tightly in to round shape (do one layer of wrap at a time then add the next layer)
Lay each loaf on a steamer (depend on how big your steamer I can steam all 4 loaves) steam for 30 minutes the ham should be done after 30 minutes) turn the heat off let it cool down before you slice it.  Serve warm or cold as appetizer or snack.
