  • 1 lb rice noodles, 1 pack, (bihon)

For Sauce:

  • 2 tbsp cooking oil
  • ½ lb ground pork
  • 1 tbsp anatto powder
  • 3 cup pork broth
  • 1 shrimp cube
  • 6 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp fish sauce

  7. Add the fish sauce and ground black pepper then simmer until sauce becomes thick. Set aside.
  8. Meanwhile, boil enough water in a pot.
  9. Place the soaked noodles in a strainer (use metal or bamboo strainer) then submerge the strainer in the boiling water for about a minute or until the noodles are cooked. (make sure that the noodles are still firm)

  10. Remove the strainer from the pot and drain the liquid from the noodles.
  11. Place the noodles in the serving plate.
  12. Pour the sauce on top of the noodles then arrange the toppings over the sauce.
