The sauce for this healthy noodle dish is made of just 3 ingredients: honey, fish sauce and store-bought chili-garlic sauce, which you can find in the Asian aisle of many grocery stores. The sauce is combined with rice noodles, pork, veggies and herbs for a simple dinner recipe that's also impressive.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine honey, fish sauce, and chili-garlic sauce in a small bowl.

  • Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet or wok over medium heat. Add pork, scallion whites, garlic, ginger, and pepper; cook, stirring occasionally, until the pork is no longer pink, about 3 minutes.

  • Add the honey mixture, stirring and scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Reduce heat to medium-low; continue cooking until the pork is just cooked through, about 2 minutes more. Remove from heat.

  • Cook rice noodles according to package directions. Reserve 1 cup of the cooking water, then drain the noodles.

  • Add the noodles to the pork. Add cucumber, bean sprouts, carrots, mint, cilantro, lime juice, and scallion greens; toss to coat. Stir in the reserved cooking water, 1/4 cup at a time, until the mixture is saucy and loose.

  • Divide the pork and noodle mixture among 4 bowls and garnish with cilantro, if desired. Serve with lime wedges.

I made this almost exactly according to the recipe except I didn't have the bean sprouts. It required a LOT of chopping and cutting and did not taste like much after all that work. I added more fish sauce and cilantro trying to get it to have more oomph but I thought it was boring. My husband liked it but I wouldn't make it again. Read More
