  • Summary

    Vietnamese-style marinated pork chops are often served whole with rice noodles, herbs and a dipping sauce. This version mixes all the components, infusing the noodles, sliced meat and vegetables with the sauce and keeping the noodles tender even after a day in the fridge. Dark, robust maple syrup takes the place of the traditional dark caramel in a nod to autumn (and as a weeknight shortcut to save you the hassle of browning sugar). The pork takes only a few minutes to cook, the noodles about 3, so this whole dish comes together really fast.

    Ingredients

    • 1/3 cup fish sauce
    • 1/4 cup dark, pure maple syrup
    • 2 tablespoons grapeseed or other neutral oil
    • Black pepper
    • 2 large shallots, thinly sliced (3/4 cup)
    • 1 long red finger chile, thinly sliced (1/3 cup)
    • 3 small garlic cloves, minced (1 tablespoon)
    • 4 thin (1/2-inch) boneless pork chops (3/4 to 1 pound total)
    • 1/3 cup fresh lime juice (from about 3 limes), plus lime wedges for serving
    • 3 carrots, peeled and julienned (2 cups)
    • Kosher salt
    • 8 to 9 ounces thin rice vermicelli noodles
    • 2 packed cups torn fresh herbs, such as cilantro, basil and dill (2 1/2 ounces), plus more for garnish
