In your bag
- 5 ounces vermicelli rice noodles
- 2 pork blade steaks (about 6 ounces each)
- 1 teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder
- Wooden skewers
- 3 scallions
- 1 romaine heart
- 3 or 4 sprigs fresh cilantro
- 2 or 3 sprigs fresh mint
- 1 lime
- Sun Basket nuoc cham sauce base (fish sauce - fresh garlic - coconut sugar)
- 1 tablespoon sambal oelek (optional)

When threading the pork onto the skewers, fold any longer pork strips in half and skewer twice. Don’t crowd the pork on the skewers; leaving a little room between the pieces ensures the meat will cook evenly all over.

Cook the rice noodles
While the water heats and the noodles cook, prepare the pork and scallion oil.
Prep and cook the pork; make the scallion oil
- Pat the pork dry with a paper towel; cut the pork into ¼-inch-wide strips. Season generously with salt and pepper and the five-spice powder. Thread the pork strips onto the skewers.
- Trim the root ends from the scallions; thinly slice the scallions. Transfer to a small bowl.
Pour the hot pork cooking oil over the scallions. Let stand while you prepare the remaining ingredients.
Prep the remaining ingredients
- Trim the root end from the romaine heart; cut the romaine in half lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise.
- Remove any coarse stems from the cilantro.
- Strip the mint leaves from the stems.
- Juice the lime.
