  4. Lightly spray wok with oil and heat over high heat. Stir-fry chilli garlic sauce and onion for 1 minute. Add carrot and snow peas and stir-fry for 1 minute. Add juice, fish sauce and xylitol and stir-fry for 1–2 minutes or until vegetables are just tender.
  5. Add pork, noodles and omelette and stir-fry for 1 minute or until heated through. Sprinkle with sprouts, shallots and coriander to serve.

Notes

It’s best to slightly undercook rice stick noodles so they don’t break apart in the wok. Add a tablespoon of water and keep stir-frying if they are still a little firm in Step 5. Add it: Lime wedges and 1 tbs chopped unsalted roasted peanuts to serve. Swap it: Pork for skinless lean chicken breast fillets.
