Trying Out Cha Trung

Wandering Chopsticks may be one of the best ever Vietnamese cooks I know in my personal blogosphere. Her site is a delight to read and browse through, and the recipes that I've made from it are wonderful and fuss-free. No losers in the entire lot that I've tried!

One of the ones that I've been meaning to post up for some time already is her Cha Trung, Vietnamese Meatloaf Steamed Egg Omelette. It's become a staple for me when I have ground pork in the freezer, little time for anything more than about half an hour in the kitchen, and a need to eat NOW. Best of all, it is naturally gluten-free so it didn't need ANY tweaking whatsoever.

I can't, and won't, better the explanations she gives on the recipe. You'll just have to go look at it and try it for yourself.

But since I've told her for ages that I have pictures of the process and the finished product, I will put them up here since I finally have an appropriate blog space to do so!

Thanks so much for the recipe, WC! I'm definitely going to be making this many more times over the course of the year.
