  • Total time 30 minutes
  • Portion size 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 shallot , finely chopped
  • 1 Thai bird's-eye pepper , thinly sliced, or 1 tsp sambal oelek
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup canola oil , divided
  • 4 teaspoons fish sauce
  • 150 g rice stick noodles (1/4 inch wide)
  • 4 boneless pork loin chops (about 3/4 inch thick/150 g each)
  • 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper
  • 3 cups mixed baby greens
  • 2 cups matchstick-cut carrots
  • 5 radishes , thinly sliced
  • 6 cocktail tomatoes , cut in wedges
  • 1/2 cup each mint and cilantro leaves , torn
  • chopped roasted peanuts and/or lime wedges (optional)

Method

In small bowl, whisk together shallot, Thai pepper, lime juice, brown sugar, 2 tbsp of the oil and fish sauce. Let stand for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, cook noodles according to package directions. Drain and rinse under cold water; drain. Transfer noodles to separate bowl; toss with remaining 2 tbsp oil. Set aside.

Meanwhile, preheat barbecue to medium heat (about 350°F); grease grill. Sprinkle pork with salt and pepper. Place on grill; close lid and cook, flipping once, until juices run clear when pork is pierced and just a hint of pink remains inside, about 6 minutes. Transfer to plate; tent with foil. Let rest for 5 minutes before thinly slicing.

Divide noodles, baby greens, carrots, radishes, tomatoes, mint and cilantro among bowls; top with pork. Drizzle with any pork juices and 1/4 cup of the shallot mixture. Garnish with peanuts and serve with lime wedges (if using).
