Ants Climb a Tree

1/2 lb dried cellophane noodles 1/4 kg
1 lb lean ground pork or beef 1/2 kg
1/3 cup soy sauce 75 ml
1 tbsp sesame-seed oil 15 ml
6 scallions, finely sliced 6
5 tbsp peanut oil 75 ml
1/2 inch slice fresh ginger, grated 1 cm
6 garlic cloves, finely chopped 6
2 tbsp hot pepper paste 30 ml
2/3 cup water 150 ml

Put the cellophane noodles in a large bowl and cover them with 1
quart (1 liter) boiling water. Set them aside to soak for at least
20 minutes.

Put the ground pork in a bowl and add to it 2 tablespoons (30 ml)
of soy sauce and the sesame-seed oil. Add half of the scallions
to the pork and mix well; set the rest of the scallions aside.

When the cellophane noodles have become soft, rinse them several
times under cold running water and drain them well.

Heat your wok over high heat for 15 seconds, then pour in the peanut
oil. When the oil is ready, toss in the ginger and garlic and add
the hot-pepper paste. Stir fry these ingredient together for 30
seconds. Add the meat and continue to stir fry for about one
minute, taking particular care to break up any large chunks of
meat. Pour in the remaining soy sauce and stir fry everything for
30 seconds longer. Add the cellophane noodles to the pan and cook
for about one minute, turning the noodles over occasionally.

After a minute, add the scallions and the water then cover the pan
and let simmer over medium heat for 3 or 4 minutes.
