     10 oz Fresh bean sprouts
      3    Green onions; thinly sliced
    1/2 c  Chopped dry-roasted peanuts
           -- (unsalted)
    1/4 c  Chopped fresh cilantro

MMMMM------------------------FOR GARNISH-----------------------------
           Finely minced dried shrimp
           Fresh cilantro sprigs
           Lemon or lime wedges
  In a bowl, cover the noodles in lukewarm water and let stand to
  soften, about 15 minutes for fresh noodles or about 30 minutes for
  dry noodles. Drain and cut into 6-inch lengths, if desired.  Set
  In a small bowl, combine the fish sauce, vinegar, sugar, and paprika,
  catsup, or tomato paste.  Set aside.
  Heat a wok or saute pan over high heat.  Add the oil and swirl to
  coat the pan.  Add the pork or chicken, garlic, and chili and
  stir-fry for 1 minute. Stir in the drained noodles and the reserved
  fish sauce mixture and stir-fry about 30 seconds.  Push the noodles
  to one side, pour in about a tablespoon more oil, if necessary, and
  add the eggs; cook just until slightly set, then break them up.  Add
  the shrimp and stir-fry just until they turn pink.  Add most of the
  bean sprouts, the green onion, and 1/4 cup of the peanuts and
  stir-fry until the sprouts and onions are crisp-tender, 1 to 2
  minutes.  Remove from the heat and transfer to a serving plate.
  Sprinkle with the chopped cilantro, remaining 1/4 cup peanuts, and
  dried shrimp.  Garnish with the remaining bean sprouts, cilantro
  sprigs, and lemon or lime wedges, and serve immediately.  Diners
  squeeze lemon or lime juice to taste.
  Serves 8 as a pasta course, or 4 as a main course
