Place all of the marinade ingredients in a bowl with the minced pork and mix well with your hands. Set aside to marinate while you prepare the rest of the dish (or overnight).
In another bowl, whisk all of the sauce ingredients together and set aside.
When ready to cook, place the rice vermicelli in a bowl and cover with boiling water. They should become soft in about 10 minutes, but please refer to the instructions on the side of the packet.
Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat and divide the pork into large or small patties – the choice is yours, as both are served in Vietnam. Fry the patties until cooked through.
Divide the rice noodles between four bowls and serve topped with the pork patties, some of the dipping sauce, herbs, chillies (if using) and lettuce.
Serve at the table with more dipping sauce and dig in.
