   Blanch the bean sprouts for a minute, then set them aside to drain.  Boil
   the noodles in plenty of water for five minutes, then drain them. Next,
   cook the ground pork in a saucepan over medium heat until it begins to
   brown.  Add chicken stock, dried shrimp and fish sauce, stir, and bring the
   mixture to boil. Meanwhile, chop the garlic and fry it in a tablespoon of
   vegetable oil until it is crisp. Place the blanched bean sprouts in the
   bottom of a large serving bowl. Top with the cooked noodles. Pour the fried
   garlic and its oil over top of the noodles. When the chicken stock mixture
   boils, tear the lettuce leaves into strips, add them to the stock,
   immediately remove the stock mixture from the stove, and pour it over the
   noodles and bean sprouts. Garnish with pork slices, green onions and
   corriander leaves.  Sprinkle in the sugar, peanuts and chile flakes and
   serve immediately.
