I really enjoy making this recipe. I would recommend cutting the rice noodles as they are hard to stir and mix other ingredients into. I also add much more vegetables than what it calls for. Very filling.

I made this as a side dish. It was easy to make, however, I just didn't care for the meat with the noodles. The flavor just rocked. I also ommitted the egg, because I just plain forgot to boil one and didn't want to wait for it. It went perfectly with Filipino Chicken Adobo, Filipino Chicken Adobo (Adobong Manok). A little advice, though, the recipe indicated it serves 2, so I doubled it as I had 4 (to include 2 hungry men). It made an enourmous amount. I could have made a single recipe and it would have been plenty for the four of us. I do recommend this recipe. When I make it again, I think I will make a vegetable only version.
