DIRECTIONS

  • Boil noodles for about 3-4 minutes (or according to package), drain, then plunge into cold water until needed.
  • Meanwhile, mix sauce ingredients in a small bowl.
  • Prep the other ingredients and have them all ready before starting--the rest of the cooking is done in MINUTES.
  • Heat oil in a wok or large skillet to hot.
  • Stir-fry garlic for about 20 seconds until starting to brown.
  • Add the chiles (STAND BACK and have the fume hood on HIGH unless you want to cough and cry for half an hour--trust me) and fry for about 30 seconds.
  • Add the pork and fry until no longer pink, breaking up lumps, and then stir in the sauce mixture. Let it bubble a bit.
  • Drain the noodles and stir them into the wok mixture. Toss until sauce absorbed, 1 or 2 minutes, then stir in the basil and tomatoes until basil wilted, about 1 minute.
  • Dump onto a platter or portion onto 4 plates and sprinkle with the mint (essential ingredient!).
  • Have plenty of cold beverages ready.
