4-6 large tomatoes
1 pkg. thick rice noodles
1 lb. Ground pork
3 cloves garlic
2 tbs. Tour Now (fermented beans)
1 bunch green onions
1 bunch cilantro

Soak rice noodles in warm water for several hours. Drain when ready to use. Boil a large pot of water. Optional: add ginger, pork bones and season slightly.

Chop the tomatoes, green onions/cilantro and mince the garlic. Sauté garlic in a wok until fragrant, add ground pork. When the pork is cooked, add the chopped tomatoes. Sauté for a few minutes then add the fermented beans and bring to a boil.

Reduce the heat and let simmer until mixture becomes a thick sauce. Combine noodles, meat sauce and cilantro/green onion garnish in a bowl. Ladle hot broth over them. Add more seasonings as needed. Serve with celery sticks and lettuce.

I want to make this, but where can I get fermented beans (what type of beans) or do I fermented myself?
