Thai Pork and Noodle Stir Fry

Its all about the pork concentrate.  Oh my gosh when I use this ingredient it makes all of my pork dishes POP in flavor.  Pork can be a little lean thus making the flavor fall short.  But not now! I got my pork concentrate off Amazon but maybe you'll be lucky and have some in your grocery store. Just a pinch, a tablespoon at most will do the trick.  

This is a great stir-fry recipe.  If you have some delicate tummies eating this you might want to go easy on the asian seasoning. But again, its all to your preference. Also, be sure to stir the rice noodles a few times as they soak in the hot water.  They can get sticky and nobody wants sticky noodles-gross! I hope you enjoy it!
