  • 100 g dried rice vermicelli noodles
  • 1 tbsp peanut oil
  • 500 g minced pork
  • 4 green onions, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 long red chilli, chopped
  • 2/3 cup finely grated palm sugar

  • 1/2 cup peanuts, toasted, chopped

In a large heatproof bowl, cover noodles with boiling water. Set aside for 5 minutes. Drain well.


In a wok or large frying pan, heat oil on high. Stir-fry pork for 4-5 minutes until browned, breaking up lumps.


Add onion, garlic and chilli and stir-fry for 1 minute. Transfer mixture to a plate.


In same wok, heat combined sugar, juice and fish sauce until boiling. Simmer for 2-3 minutes, stirring, until reduced and sticky.


Return mince mixture to pan with broccolini and half each coriander and peanuts. Stir-fry for 2 minutes. Toss noodles through.


Serve topped with remaining coriander, nuts and fried shallots. Accompany with lime wedges if liked.

Tip: If liked, accompany with sliced carrot and cucumber tossed in rice wine vinegar. If palm sugar is unavailable, use brown sugar.
