  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh coriander

Directions:

  1. In a small bowl combine the pork gently with the vinegar, the soy sauce and the sesame oil and let it marinate at room temp for 20 minutes
  2. In a bowl soak the noodles in warm water to cover for 15 minutes, drain them, and cut them into 3-to-4 inch lengths

  4. Add the pork and the chili paste and stir-fry the mixture, breaking up the lumps, until the meat is no longer pink.
  5. Add the noodles, the broth, the scotch, the soy sauce, the vinegar and the sugar and simmer the mixture, stirring occasionally, for 3 to 5 minutes, or until the noodles have absorbed the liquid.
  6. Transfer mixture to a platter, drizzle it with the sesame oil and sprinkle it with coriander and the remaining 1/4 cup scallion
