Rice Noodles with Pork and Veggies

This is a quick and easy adaption of my pork fried rice dish using a lot of the same ingredients but having a lighter taste. Often I make this in my electric skillet, but a stovetop skillet will work just fine.

1 package of rice noodles - prepared by package instructions

Cold pressed olive oil

1 tbsp fish sauce

1 sweet onion or one bunch of scallions coarsely chopped

2 cloves Garlic,minced

1 large, thick cut pork steak cut into cubes or slices - approx 1 pound

1 small cabbage head, coarsely chopped

4 large carrots, cut into cubes or julienned if you prefer

approx 1/4 c soy sauce



Add approx 2 tbsp oil to skillet, heat, and add carrots. Cook carrots partially - they should become darker in color but not done, done - add pork and fish sauce and sauté on low until almost done - in other words they should be still a bit pink.  While pork is cooking put your rice noodles in the bowl of water to soak. Throw in your pan the cabbage, onions, and garlic and sauté on low. These should be just limp but not overdone and the pork is now completely cooked. Drain your noodles and shake off excess water. Stir in rice noodles and soy sauce. Heat through and mix with pork, juices, and vegetables. 

Mmmm .... now I'm getting hungry.
