Boil the noodles
Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Add the noodles; stir gently to separate. Boil, 5 to 7 min., until al dente. Drain and toss with a drizzle of oil to prevent sticking. Set aside in a warm spot.

Toast the peanuts
Meanwhile, in a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium. Toast the peanuts, 1 to 2 min., until fragrant. Transfer to a small bowl. Wipe out and reserve the pan.

Cook the pork
In the same pan, heat a generous drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the pork* and ½ the lemongrass; season with ⅔ of the spices and S&P. Cook, breaking up the meat, 4 to 6 min., until browned and cooked through. Transfer to a large bowl, leaving any browned bits in the pan. Reserve the pan.

Mise en place
Meanwhile, halve the tomatoes. Peel and cut the carrots into thin matchsticks (or thinly slice into rounds). Halve the cucumber lengthwise; thinly slice into half-moons on an angle. Remove the root end of the scallion; thinly slice, separating the white bottom and green top.

Make the vinaigrette
In the reserved pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Sauté the white bottom of the scallion and remaining lemongrass, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan, 1 to 2 min., until fragrant. Transfer to a medium bowl. Add the chili sauce, ponzu, 4 tbsp oil (double for 4 portions), the remaining spices and pepper; stir well.
