Directions

  1. Start by soaking rice stick noodles in warm water for 15 minutes or until softened, then drain.
  2. Bring chicken, pork and 1-1/2 cups water to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat; shred the meat into small pieces- reserve the water.
  4. (A sturdy mixer such as a Kitchen Aid can be handy in shredding meat using the whisk attachment).
  5. Heat oil in a large, wide saute pan.
  6. Saute garlic and onion in oil until onion is translucent.
  7. Add shredded meat, shrimp and soy sauce and stir-fry 5 minutes.
  8. Over high heat, add cabbage, carrots, salt, pepper and 1 cup of broth.
  9. Stir fry for an additional 2 minutes.
  10. Reduce heat to low and add rice noodles, tossing gently (wooden spoons work best) until cooked through and well blended, approximately 3 minutes.
  11. If the mixture seems dry, add more broth.
  12. Serve immediately with soy sauce.
