Make-Ahead Curry Pork Skewers with Vermicelli

Notes: To maximize pork-y flavor, I poured some of the collected cooking juices from the pork skewers into the vermicelli noodles. Never waste cooking juices if you can help it! Just make sure to line the baking sheet well with foil for easy pouring.

An admittedly unusual, but highly recommended use of these leftovers is for breakfast: Heat a small amount of canola oil in a frying pan, slip the pork off the skewers, and mix into the noodles. Stir-fry the whole thing, top with two fried eggs, and enjoy a breakfast of champions.
