Som moo (Lao: ສົ້ມໝູ; also spelled som mou), or naem moo, OR naem, literally “sour pork” or “nem pork”, is a type of preserved pork sausage that is a traditional celebratory food from Vietnam. It is made from raw ground pork and shredded pork skin. A thin layer of star gooseberry leaves, guava leaves, or fig leaves.. are used to wrap a small lump of raw ground pork and skin.
Som Moo can be found in many asian supermarkets, sometimes in small packets, sometimes in large blocks. It´s a great snack or can be used in many other dishes like the laotian Rice Ball Salad (Nam Khao)!
It can be eaten “as is”, or cooked, though the former is more preferred.
But today we show you a homemade Som Moo Version. This version is (like all homemade things) much better than the one you´ll find in the supermarkets.
