This recipe is from the January/February 1991 issue of Chile Pepper magazine. The intro to the recipe says, “In this dish, the bits of pork are supposed to resemble ants. It is made with transparent bean threads. Make sure you don’t use rice noodles, which have a similar appearance.” Serves 2 by itself or more with other dishes. Heat scale: medium. My ex-husband made this dish regularly, as it was one of his favorites; at the time, my tastes hadn’t quite developed enough to appreciate it fully. Now I have come to really treasure this dish.
