Baked Bean Thread Noodles with Crab (Mien Xao Cua Dut Lo)

If you enjoy baked dishes, you’ll love this week’s recipe which I call a Vietnamese casserole.  I wish more recipes were this simple–we lightly stir-fry some vegetables with crab meat, add in the noodles, seasoned chicken stock and then bake.  Everything comes out piping hot, perfectly cooked and so delicious.  The noodles are substantial enough that they can be served as a main dish.  Without a doubt […]
