Boiled Pork Rolled In Wild Leaves

Boiled pork wrapped in wild leaves and served with peanut sauce is a fusion food that stems from the boiled dish theme of the Masterchef game show. The dish can be served with any kind of vegetables, including star fruits, mild bananas or coriander. Boiled pork and coconut juice are already sweet enough, and once served with sour coriander and buttery peanut sauce, it is a match made in heaven.

Revised at will, the dish is sometimes served with Trang Bang rice crepes or spring rolls. This snack is simple and delectable.
