  • 1 lb raw pork paste giò sống
  • 1 tbs of coarsely cracked white or black peppercorns
  • 1 head of garlic finely minced
  • 1/2 tbs sugar
  • 1/2 ts fish sauce
  • ~10-12 sheets of 4 x 6 inch banana leaves and thin 6x 1/4 inch banana leaf strips to tie


  • Prepare your steamer. Combine all the ingredients into a mixing bowl until well incorporated. You can pinch off 1/2 ts and microwave it for about 30s and season to taste. Add more garlic and/or peppercorns if you like it more spicy.
  • Place about 1 heaping tbs of mixture onto one end of the banana leaf. Fold over the side edges and roll the pork mixture. Seal with the banana strip by giving it several twists and tuck the loose ends under. See video above.
  • Steam for 10 minutes, or until thoroughly cooked. Enjoyed immediately or at room temperature.
