• Cook pork in a boiling water for 10 min or until it’s done depending how big the meat is. Thin sliced the meat and put on the plate.
• Peel the Vietnamese sausages if desired, and thin sliced. Fry or cook in microwave for three minutes, or until it’s done. Put them on the same plate. Hint: With Vietnamese sausages, put them in hot water for a couple minutes before use. This will help to peel the cover off easier.
• In a bowl, whisk the eggs for 2 min., then cook on the non stick pan (no omelets) into thin layers. Put them on the board, and thin sliced after they cool down. Put them on the plate.
• Cook a large pot of water. Add rice sticks in when it boiled. When it’s done, pour in a basket, and let dry. (Do not over cook the rice sticks). When ready to eat, put the rice stick on a small plate.
• Prepare lettuce, cucumber, and basil leaves on a different plate.
