  1. Because pork paste are inherently briny, you only need to season with a small amount of fish sauce to avoid being salty, and when eating you should dip the skewers in sweet and sour fish sauce.
  2. Should add fat, cooking oil (or cashew oil) so that the grilled lemongrass pork skewers do not dry out.
  3. Using crushed base lemongrass to wrap the pork is the best because the lemongrass essential oil makes it more delicious. If you don't have one, use sugar cane or skewers.
  4. If you have time, you can make broth from liver in order to make the dish more Hue-style. Method: Use 100 grams of ground pork; 100 grams of pork or chicken liver, wash, cut into pieces, soak in fresh milk for 30 minutes to remove fishiness, poach in boiling water and minced or finely chopped. Saute onion and garlic, add liver and ground meat, stir-fry, season to taste. Add 1 bowl of water and cook on low heat until the meat is tender, mix a little tapioca starch with water and stir to combine. Turn off the heat, add peanuts and roasted sesame, chili powder (depending on taste) and stir well.
