1¼-lb. pork tenderloin, trimmed and cut into ¼-in. slices

12 oz. rice noodles 

4 c. prepared slaw mix

¼ red onion, thinly sliced

4½ c. reduced-sodium chicken broth

4½ tsp. fish sauce

1 tsp. reduced-sodium soy sauce

2 tbsp. canola oil or other neutral-flavored oil

¼ c. thinly sliced fresh basil leaves

1 lime, cut into 6 wedges


  1. Prepare noodles according to package directions. Arrange noodles in 6 serving bowls. Top with slaw mix and onion; set aside. While noodles are cooking, combine chicken broth, fish sauce and soy sauce in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and keep broth just below a simmer. In a very large skillet over medium-high heat, warm oil. Add pork and cook until browned and internal temperature of pork reaches 145&degF., 1 to 2 min. per side. You may have to do this in batches. Remove pork and rest for 3 min. Arrange pork on top of noodle bowls. Ladle in broth, garnish with basil and lime wedges, and serve.
