Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add noodles to boiling water and then return to a boil for 1 minute (or until the noodles are clear); drain and cut once or twice through the noodles so they are in slightly smaller pieces (the noodles will be sticky).
  2. Brown hamburger (or meat), add the garlic and sesame oil, and then sauté for 1 minute.
  3. Add the remaining vegetables and stir fry with the meat.
  4. Remove pan from heat and add the salt and soy sauce before mixing in the noodles.
  5. Stir to mix (use two forks to help break up clumps of noodles) and then serve.

Fantastic! Delicious! Easy to make. We will make this again. I had forgotten how delicious bean threads are...

This was really good, and quite filling! The portions are very large due to the fact that bean thread noodles are very light. I used ground turkey, and probably double the garlic (I didn't measure). I omitted the salt initially and used 1/4 c stir fry sauce and 1/4 c low sodium soy sauce. I ended up adding the salt in the end, though, just because I thought it still needed a little something. Next time I might add some crushed red pepper...mmm. I also had small cans of bamboo and water chestnuts, and ended up throwing in the whole can in both cases. Thanks for posting, this is definitely a keeper that will be fun to play with!
