   heat; cook garlic and chili pepper flakes for 15 seconds. Add pork (or

   pieces and Nuoc Mam mixture to wok, bring to a boil. Add drained noodles

   Add remaining oil to wok; add eggs and cook for 10 seconds. Scramble eggs
   and add bean sprouts. Return noodles to wok and thoroughly stir to mix eggs
   with noodles. Continue to cook until eggs are set. Arrange noodles on
   serving plate and garnish with chopped fresh coriander, coarsely chopped
   peanuts, minced green onions and chilies, chopped dried shrimps. Serve
   immediately. From The Gazette, 92/04/08. Posted by James Lor.
