Add sugar and 2 tbsp water in a sauce pan and cook over medium heat. Do not stir! Shake the pan gently to evenly distribute sugar. If some spots are turning brown too quickly, just swirl the sauce around a bit to even it out. Once sugar sauce has turned a dark golden brown, carefully pour in ¼ cup water.

Add in fish sauce, oyster sauce, honey, sesame oil and black pepper. Let the mixture cool completely. Prepare lemongrass garlic mixture: 1. Peel off the tough outer leaves and cut about 1 inch off the bottom parts. Thinly slice the tender white purple cores. Save the green leafy parts to use as skewers if you're also making grilled pork patties or discard. 2. Add shallot, garlic, sliced lemongrass to a food processor or blender and puree til all the shallot, garlic and lemongrass are very finely minced. Alternatively, mince garlic, shallot and lemongrass by hands. Marinate the meat 1. Take the meat out of the freezer and slice thinly. 2. Add all the sliced meat into a large mixing bowl. Pour in marinade and minced lemongrass garlic mixture. Mix the meat thoroughly so it's all evenly coated in sauce. Cover and marinate in the fridge overnight. Prepare rice noodles 1. Bring 6 quarts of water to a boil. 2. Add in 2 tsp vinegar and rice noodle sticks. Boil for 5 mins. Close the lid, turn off heat and let it sit for another 5 mins. 3.
