Put the pork in a mixing bowl, add the fish sauce, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, and five-spice powder and leave to marinate for 30 minutes, (or overnight in the refrigerator). Meanwhile, put the vermicelli in a bowl, cover with boiling water, and leave for 6 minutes or until soft. Drain, rinse, then drain again and put to one side.
Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a wok, swirling it around well to coat the surface, then add the pork and cook furiously over a high heat for 6–8 minutes, or until beginning to turn golden and crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon and put to one side. Heat another tablespoon of the oil in the wok, then add the garlic and ground coriander and stir. Add the mushrooms and cook for a couple of minutes, then add the shrimps or prawns and stir-fry over a high heat for 5–8 minutes, or until pink. Remove with a slotted spoon and put to one side.
Heat the remaining oil in the pan, then add the onions and chillies and stir-fry for 1 minute. Add the vermicelli, season with salt and black pepper, then stir in the beansprouts. Return the pork and the shrimp or prawn mixture to the wok and stir well. Remove from the heat, top with the spring onions and coriander, and serve.
