The dish is commonly served during traditional celebrations such as weddings, funerals, and longevity ceremonies of the local ethnic minority tribes.
“Khau nhuc” is a meticulously crafted dish that requires a significant amount of time to prepare.
It consists of roasted pork loin marinated with a blend of spices and honey, resulting in a unique flavor, aroma, and texture.
To enhance the flavor, finely chopped “tau soi” leaves, a pickled herb used by the Tay ethnic minority, are mixed with soy sauce and a special blend of dried spices. This mixture is then applied to the pork loin, allowing it to marinate for 15 minutes.
When served, “khau nhuc” is presented on a plate resembling an up-ended basket, with the strips of pork loin intricately woven together.
