Vietnamese Pork Noodle Soup

Mmmmmmm, this is my new discovery and it is gorgeous. Recipe below. I based it on a few recipes I saw online but totally tweaked it to my own taste. I had only intended to make one portion but it actually ended up enough for two portions, so next time I'll be doubling the meat quantity.

Just start off with a basic stock, and add all the ingredients, including cooked pork and simmer for c 10 mins. I added the noodles 5 mins before the end and they cooked in the mixture.

Oh and a tip, don't add any extra salt to season as the fish sauce and the soy are plenty!
