Deana’s Chả Trứng Hấp

Updated: Jun 13, 2020

Chả trứng hấp is, like a steamed meatloaf. But with Vietnamese flavors. It’s my dad’s favorite thing to eat next to fish! He always made it with mam nam and it stinks so bad to me when I was a child. Now I appreciate and enjoy the savory, salty and pungent flavors that pairs with rice so beautifully!
