  • 1/2 ts Ground fresh chili paste

Soak the rice noodles in 10 to 12 cups cold water for 30 minutes to an hour. Drain and cover with a damp towel to retain moisture.

Preheat a wok or skillet over medium heat. Add vegetable oil, meat and eggs and cook until done.
Combine rice noodles and sauce mix with eggs and meat in wok or skillet and stir until they are evenly mixed. Continue cooking, stirring frequently to make sure noodles do not get too hard or burned. Add bean sprouts and turnip leaves or green onions and stir to combine.
Serve with ground peanuts, fresh bean sprouts and fresh lime slices on the side.
