DIRECTIONS

  • Combine sugar and pepper in a small bowl.
  • Also combine the fish sauce and soy sauce in another bowl.
  • Have everything ready and next to the stove.
  • Heat a wok over high heat and add 2 tablespoons oil and heat until a piece of the chopped garlic sizzles immediately when dropped into the wok.
  • Add the rest of the garlic to the oil and stir fry for 30 seconds, until garlic is golden.
  • Add the chillies and stir fry another 30 seconds.
  • Then add either the pork or chicken and stir fry for 3-5 minutes until browned and cooked.
  • Add the sugar mixture and toss to mix, then the fish sauce mixture, also the vinegar and continue stir frying until the sauce bubbles and thickens a little, about 1 minute.
  • Add the rice noodles and fold gently and repeatedly until they soften and absorb the sauce, about 3-5 minutes, adding more oil if needed.
  • Add most of the basil (reserve some for garnish) and toss gently until it begins to wilt.
  • Add tomatoes, turn once and remove from heat.
  • Transfer to a platter and garnish with basil.
