Singapore Noodles are a delicious innovation of the Chinese-American kitchen. In my version, I marinate and stir-fry shrimp and pork with a rainbow of vegetables before adding the rice vermicelli and seasoning it with a savory curry flavored sauce.

Put the noodles in a heat-proof tray or shallow bowl and cover with boiling water. Start separating the noodles with tongs or chopsticks and when the noodles are no longer brittle, drain and rinse them with cold water. Put the noodles back in the tray and cover with cold water, pulling them apart so that they don't stick together. Drain and set aside.
Put the shrimp, pork, soy sauce, Shaoxing and potato starch in a bowl and mix well to combine. Let these marinate while you prepare everything else.
In a small bowl, combine the fish sauce, oyster sauce, and chicken stock.
Once you've prepped the vegetables for the stir-fry, heat a wok or large frying pan over high heat until very hot. Add a tablespoon of oil, and swirl to coat the pan. Add the egg, swirling, and then scrambling. Transfer the egg to a plate and set aside.
Add 2 tablespoons of oil, and then add the garlic and ginger. Fry until fragrant.
Add the marinated shrimp and pork and stir-fry until the pork just loses its pink color (it doesn't have to be cooked all the way).
Add the onion, red and green bell peppers, bamboo, and bean sprouts. Stir-fry, alternating between tossing the ingredients in the pan and stirring vigorously until the vegetables are a bright color.
Add the curry powder and stir-fry until fragrant.
Add the noodles and return the egg to the pan. Pour the sauce mixture over the noodles and use chopsticks or tongs to toss the noodles and evenly coat them with sauce. If the noodles start sticking, add a bit more water.
Garnish your Singapore Noodles with scallions and serve hot.
