  3. Add garlic and ginger and cook briefly
  4. Add the beef and cook until it is just done
  5. Drain the vermicelli over a bowl, saving ½ cup of the soaking liquid
  6. Add the vermicelli and ½ cup of soaking liquid to the beef mix
  7. Add the vegetables and soy sauce, and simmer for a couple of minutes.


Be careful not to stir this dish too much, or the vermicelli will become mushy.
