    Directions

    1. Equipment: medium pot (for boiling water for rice noodles, grill pan, for the pork), medium bowl (for pork mixture), medium bowl (for dressing), strainer, large bowl, for mixing noodles and dressing
    2. Start by getting water boiling in a pot and heating up your grill pan.
    3. We’re only using the stalk of the aromatic lemon grass, which is the white part, you can peel back the rest and save for compost. Chop the lemongrass quite fine. Now slice the cloves of garlic and top with a pinch of salt. Using your knife blade to chop and rock, as well as the side of your knife to smear, work the garlic and salt together to form a heavenly, concentrated paste.
