2
tablespoons oyster sauce
1
tablespoon white vinegar

7
oz uncooked linguine-style rice stick noodles (from 14-oz package)
1
tablespoon peanut or vegetable oil
1/2
lb lean ground pork
3
medium cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 1/2
cups ready-to-eat baby-cut carrots, cut lengthwise into julienne (2x1/4x1/4-inch) strips

  1. In 2-cup glass measuring cup, mix sauce ingredients with wire whisk until well blended; set aside.
  2. In large stockpot, heat 4 quarts water to boiling over high heat. Remove from heat; add noodles. Let stand 8 to 10 minutes or until noodles are tender; drain.
  3. Meanwhile, in wok or 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat peanut oil over medium-high heat about 1 minute. Add pork and garlic; cook about 5 minutes, breaking up pork into small pieces with wooden spoon, until pork is no longer pink. Add carrots, bell pepper, green onions and pepper flakes; cook 3 minutes, stirring 3 or 4 times.
  4. Mix sauce mixture again with wire whisk to recombine; pour into wok. Stir to coat mixture with sauce. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, to blend flavors. Stir in sesame oil.
  5. In large serving bowl, gently mix noodles with sauce mixture to coat. Sprinkle with cilantro.
