  1. Slice the uncooked pork thinly, about 1/8". It helps to slightly freeze it beforehand.
  2. Mince garlic and shallots. Mix in a bowl with sugar, fish sauce, thick soy sauce, pepper, and oil until sugar dissolves.
  3. Marinate the meat for 1 hour, or overnight for better results.
  4. Bake the pork at 375 F for 10-15 minutes or until about 80% cooked. Finish cooking by broiling in the oven until a nice golden brown color develops, flipping the pieces midway. Don't take your eyes off the broiler!
  5. Assemble your bowl with veggies, noodles, and garnish.
