  1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine jalapeno, lime juice, fish sauce and brown sugar. Add pork; seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate 3 hours or overnight.
  2. Drain pork, discarding marinade. Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil; using long-handled tongs, rub on grill rack to coat lightly. Grill pork, covered, over medium heat 1-2 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 145°.
  3. Cook rice noodles according to package directions. Drain and rinse in cold water; drain well. In a small bowl, whisk dressing ingredients. Divide rice noodles among six serving bowls. Arrange vegetables, pork and herbs over noodles; drizzle with dressing and toss to combine. Yield: 6 servings.
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
