This recipe is a keeper. Made it just like the recipe says. I love it when a recipe is exactly what I wanted.

“Bun” is a Vietnamese noodle dish typically made with cold rice noodles, lots of crunchy vegetables and thinly sliced beef or pork all tossed in a sweet and tangy sauce. It’s perfect for a hot summer night. Serve with sliced mango and iced mint green tea.

Quite good. Don't shred Napa cabbage in your food processor with the shredding disk-it vaporizes it. I will use a box grater or knife next time. Really easy and nice flavor. Not as good without the peanuts. It might benefit from some serrano chiles or hot pepper flakes too.
Good recipe, but in the future I will use more basil and less mint (or maybe no mint at all). I made it with more mint than basil, and the mint somewhat overpowered the more delicate flavor elements.
Delicious & easy to make! Wish my kids liked it more, though :)
