Trang Roasted Whole Pig - Sat, 02/28/09 3:55 AM
0
   I have been reading about this specialty of roasted pig in the Trang province of Thailand.
As I was reading I came across this passage  The pork meat is marinated in the “Ou Chieng Fun” seasoning and other ingredients namely salt, sugar, soy sauce, garlic, pepper for at least 6 – 8 hours.

 
Does anyone know or understand what is meant by “Ou Chieng Fun”
 
Thank-you for any help you can offer

I believe tha fun usually refers to noodles.  With a different first name Ive seen it refer to rice flour ball or rice paper rolls.

  Thanks for your reply I was hoping it was some kind of process
or seasoning technique.

You could go to a Thai Restaurant and ask them what it is. I couldn't find anything on the Net

 Thanks
 
    I have searched for two weeks I found one thing about it.
Jeff Corwin was on FN and was in Thailand and a lady
there was preparing this Trang roasted Pig.
It looked real good. Would like to give it a shot if I could find a
procedure somewhere.
    I have 6 e-mails to ladies that teach Thai on the west coast.
I have recieved two back saying they have never heard of this thought it might be Chinese instead. I checked Trang is definetely
in Thailand

Boomer, I believe that I might have some information for you:
 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rice_noodle_roll
 
"Cheong Fun" is a type of Chinese rice noodle roll, also popular throughout Asia - and some of the sauces are mentioned in this description - possibly one of these is what's described?
