Last night's dinner was made with the other half of the pack of minced pork from Tuesday night's Greek pork patties. Another Food for a fiver recipe that I will make again. The recipe asked for 3 tbsp of chilli bean paste - I didn't have any so I substituted Caribbean hot pepper sauce ~ BIG MISTAKE, HUGE ... and I like spicy food! My tongue has now recovered and next time I'll use less or purchase chilli bean paste!
Thai pork & lime noodles

50g thin rice noodles
250g minced pork
a small chunk root ginger, grated
3 tbsps chilli bean paste
1 tsp fish sauce
1 carrot, shredded into matchsticks*
2 sibbons** (aka spring onions/scallions) sliced
1 lime, cut into wedges.

Soak the noodles in boiled water for 5 minutes.
Brown the pork with the ginger in a little oil; break up with the back of a spoon; then add the chilli paste, fish sauce and carrots.
Stir for 1 minute; ADD the noodles and sibons.
Heat through and serve with lime wedges.
Very easy to make and delicious, if a little HOOOOOOOOT!
* I didn't go to that bother I'm afraid, I made Simon peeled them into strips with the potato peeler. To be fair ... I'm making Simon do all the prep at the moment as my hands have cracked open - a mixture of work stress and winter - you try squeezing limes/slicing onions with open cuts on your hands.
** pronounced shibbons to rhyme with ribbons - it's what spring onions are called in South Wales. /si/ is pronounced /sh-i/ in Welsh like the girl's name Sian.

Glad you posted the recipe. I don't like too much spice, just a kick. Love rice noodles. Will try this one soon.
