Originating in Vietnam, Nam Nuong or Vietnamese Grilled Pork Balls was a delicate way of preparing pork balls for well-to-do families. Lobo introduces a simple but genuine method to create this special dish.

  • Dissolve Nam Nuong Seasoning Mix in water.
  • Dredge ground pork in mixture and knead. Add extra pork fat for extra tenderness. Knead until pork becomes more glutinous.
  • Shape pork into meatballs measuring 1” in diameter.
  • Grill or bake at 340°F (170°C) for 10 minutes or until cooked.
  • Serve with assortment of fresh vegetables and dipping sauce.

Dipping Sauce

  • Dissolve Nam Nuoung Dipping Sauce Powder in water. Heat at medium until boiled.
  • Or you can microwave, set at highest temperature for 3 minutes.
  • Leave dipping sauce to cool and sprinkle with ground roasted peanuts.


  • To create the genuine dish, you need all necessary side items: flour wrapping sheets, unripe banana, fresh garlic, chilli, cucumber, star fruit and unripe mango.
  • Also, an assortment of fresh vegetables including lettuce, basil, mint and stink weed.
  • To enjoy this Vietnamese delicacy, place a meatball with finely chopped side items on a flour wrapping sheet, dress it with an amount of the dipping sauce and wrap it into a bite-sized bundle. Follow that with vegetables as desired.
  • Lobo Nam Nuong Seasoning Mix can also be used to prepare ‘Fried Shrimps on Sugar Cane’.
