Tired of using ground beef the same old way? Try this spicy dish! Feel free to double the sauce if you like it really saucy! Update: the hoisin sauce is quite sweet, so you might start off with just a little and work your way up!

Based on the previous reviews I decided to use 2 tbsp oyster sauce, 2 tbsp hoisin sauce and 3 tbsp soysauce. I also used ground chicken and chicken broth. The flavour was fantastic and it was super easy to throw together. Next time I will add som vegetables like cabbage, snowpeas. Made for Everyday is a Holiday.

Russell cooked this for our dinner tonight. He said it was fast, and easy to make, and I reckon it was fantastic to eat! Such a yummy way to use mince and vermicelli. Thanks Sharon.
