Wash produce before use


Cook the rice noodles

Bring a large sauce pot of water to a boil. Add the rice noodles and cook until just tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water, then return to the pot and set aside.
While the water heats and the noodles cook, prepare the rest of the meal.


Prep and brown the pork

  • Pat the pork dry with a paper towel. Cut the pork crosswise into ½-inch-thick slices; season lightly with salt and pepper.
In a wok or large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, add the pork and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned but not yet cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Add more oil between batches if needed. Do not clean the pan.
While the pork cooks, start preparing the remaining stir-fry ingredients.


Prep the remaining stir-fry ingredients

  • Remove the stem from the eggplant; cut the eggplant in half lengthwise. Cut each half lengthwise into 1-inch-thick strips, the strips lengthwise into 1-inch-wide sticks, and the sticks crosswise into 1-inch cubes.
  • Trim the root ends from the scallions; thinly slice the scallions, keeping the white and green parts separate. Set aside the green parts for garnish.
  • Coarsely chop the kimchi.
  • Strip the Thai basil leaves from the stems.


Finish the stir-fry

In the same pan used for the pork, if dry, add 1 to 2 tablespoons oil. Warm over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the eggplant, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften and brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the carrots, white parts of the scallions, and pork and any accumulated juices. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the carrots and scallions are tender and the pork is cooked through, 2 to 4 minutes.
Stir in the rice noodles, kimchi, and stir-fry blend and cook until the noodles are warmed through and coated with the sauce, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat, stir in the Thai basil, and season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the stir-fry to individual bowls and garnish with the sesame seeds and green parts of the scallions. Top with as much sambal oelek as you like and serve.
