Ingredients

  • 60 grams good-quality rice sticks
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 1 teaspoon garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon ginger minced
  • 1 carrot cut into matchsticks
  • a bunch of Chinese broccoli cut into two-inch lengths; stalks and leaves separated
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce
  • nuoc mam pha to taste
  • 3/4 cup pork cracklings

Instructions

  • Soak the rice sticks in tap water for about ten minutes or just long enough to soften a bit to separate them. You want them still underdone by the time you drain them and add to the pan so that they can soak up the nuoc mam pha.
  • Heat the cooking oil in a wok or frying pan. Saute the onion, garlic and ginger just until fragrant, about half a minute. Add the Chinese broccoli stalks. Stir fry for a minute. Add the Chinese broccoli leaves and carrot, season lightly with fish sauce, and cook for half a minute.
  • Add the drained rice sticks to the pan. Stir fry to coat the noodles with oil. Pour in about one-eighth cup of nuoc mam pha. Stir fry until the noodles have soaked up the sauce.
  • Taste the noodles, if it needs more seasoning, add more nuoc mam pha — sparingly because if you pour in too much liquid after the noodles have fully swelled, the excess liquid will make them soggy.
  • Add the pork cracklings to the noodles and toss just until heated through.
