Bac Lieu Vietnamese Cilantro

Bac Lieu Vietnamese Cilantro

Vietnamese cilantro, or rau ram, looks and tastes different from standard cilantro. It has long, slender, smooth leaves, strong flavor, and an extra kick of citrus. This type of cilantro is one of the most heat resistant and is slow to bolt. It works particularly well in Asian cuisine, but plays nicely with most dishes that call for cilantro. Just be aware you may want to use less.
