The cinnamon, star anise, shallot and garlic gives off such a wonderful aroma. The house smelled so yummy!

Ingredients

Bring 4 cups of water to a boil in a large pot, then add the dry rice noodles and boil for 2 minutes. Remove the pot from heat and let the noodles sit in the hot water for another 2 minutes.

Add the ground pork breaking the meat into small pieces and cooking until the browned. Once the meat has cooked throughout, add the soy-vinegar mixture and simmer for 5 minutes on medium-low heat.

This sounds unreal! I bet it would be great in a lettuce wrap with puffed rice noodles too.

This dish has a lot of great flavor. Although I’m not a huge fan of pork, I really liked this!

This dish is great–excellent flavor! I couldn’t find the right noodles though….I think I’ll try rice next time.
