Method:

  1. To marinate the pork, whisk the garlic, lime juice, fish sauce, soy sauce, maple syrup and sesame oil together in a medium bowl. Add the pork and rub with the marinade, ensuring that the pork is well coated. Cover with plastic film and refrigerate for 1 hour.
     
  2. Place the noodles in a heatproof bowl and cover with boiling water. Leave for 10 minutes, then loosen the noodles with a fork. Drain and refresh under cool running water. Drain well and set aside to cool.
     
  3. To make the Nuoc Cham dressing, whisk all the ingredients together in a small bowl.
     
  4. Heat a non-stick fry pan over medium heat and spray lightly with oil spray. Add the pork and cook for 4-6 minutes or until cooked through and lightly browned, stirring frequently. Remove from the heat, transfer to a plate and set aside to rest for 3-5 minutes.
     
  5. To make the noodle salad, place the noodles, carrot, cucumber, onion, spinach, bean sprouts, mint and coriander in a mixing bowl, drizzle over 2 tablespoons of the Nuoc Cham dressing and toss gently to combine.
     
  6. To serve, divide the noodle salad between two bowls, top with the pork and sliced chilli. Serve with lime wedges and remaining dressing on the side. Enjoy!

Vietnamese noodle salad is such a popular dish and this recipe provides plenty of flavour and it’s really filling too! Hope you enjoy it.
