matchsticks. Slice pork like bamboo & marinate in thin soy sauce &
cornstarch for 10 minutes. Peel & slice garlic in thin rounds. Combine
stock, chili paste & sugar.

Deep-frying Rice Stick: Break up rice stick before measuring. Heat
vegetable oil in hot wok. When oil is medium hot, test a few pieces of
rice stick: it should fry quickly to a puffy white. If it browns, turn down
the heat. Fry rice sticks in very small batches. Spread out fried snow on
serving platter, reserve in warm place.

until it just begins to smoke; add drained pork & stir-fry briskly for
about 2 minutes. Add bamboo, garlic & ginger. Toss with pork for 1 minute.
Re-stir liquids and add to wok. Cover wok, & simmer for 3 minutes. Remove
cover; turn up heat again; boil briefly to reduce sauce; sprinkle on
vinegar. Ladle over rice stick & serve.
