1 lb rice noodle sheets (cut into 1x3 in. strips a few layers high)
1/2 lb thinly sliced beef
1 tbsp corn starch
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp nuoc mam
2 tsp hoisin sauce
1 small thinly sliced onion
1 bunch chives (cut into 2 in. sections)
Marinate the beef in the corn starch, salt, pepper, nuoc mam, and hoisin sauce.
Pan fry the noodles on medium high heat until crispy on the outside. Sauté the onions until golden and softened. Then add the beef, reserving the marinade for later. When the beef has developed a proper char, add the chives and other vegetables and sauté again. When the vegetables have softened to your liking, add the rest of the marinade. Let simmer for a few minutes so a gravy is formed.
When the sauce has thickened to your liking, add the noodles back in and stir until mixed. You want the gravy to just coat the noodles without softening them.
