This noodle dish gets its signature bright yellow colour from golden turmeric. We've substituted leaner pork tenderloin for the traditional barbecued pork (but if you can find the real thing, it's definitely worth using). This recipe yields a lot, so be sure to use a wok or your largest nonstick skillet.
