Chop the Water Spinach
Soak Bean sprouts together with the Water Spinach in cold fresh water
Prepare some Ground meat as per Thai Ground Meats Video Tutorial (Public)
Prepare some fried Garlic and Pork Fat and oil as per Frying Garlic and Rendering Pork Fat Tutorials
If using dried noodles follow instructions on the pack to soften them up
Bring about a gallon of water to boil for the stock and throw in all the "stock ingredients" at the same time and cook for thirty minutes.
Whilst waiting for the pork to cook, fold in half (into triangles) the egg noodle squares and deep fry (medium heat) until golden and crispy
Return to stock pot after 30 minutes: Remove the lean Pork and slice thinly
Next step involves Ground Meats (Bonus top tip = Silver members privilege)
Now you're ready for the family fun; to start serving up Kwaytiaw!
To do this at home you'll need a second pan of simmering hot water
Select a portion of your preferred noodles and lower them into the simmering water and stir briefly
Grab a handful of bean sprouts and water spinach and add to the noodles, mix all together for 10-20 seconds or so and remove to a LARGE bowl
On top we add a spoon of the fried garlic and pork fat, a generous pinch of pickled cabbage, a very generous pinch of the chopped coriander and spring onions
Next you lay the sliced pork on top (and the trick stuff with minced meats)
Next comes a goodly portion of the Pork Stock to almost fill the bowl (see topmost image above) Done!
