    cookingpompom's Note:

    I love this recipe! It's cheap, delicious and fast to prepare. It comes from an old boyfriend's mum. She is Samoan and a great cook. As this is a Samoan recipe, you can bet it's going to feed a small army.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 250 g mung beans, vermicelli they are also called cellophane (found in the asian section of your supermarket) or 1 glass noodles
    • 2 tablespoons oil
    • 1 large onion, diced
    • 2 -4 garlic cloves, crushed (or a good tablespoon of the prepared garlic in a jar)
    • 1 tablespoon of fresh grated gingerroot (or 1 tb of ginger from a jar)
    • 300 g mincemeat (all meats are fine, beef, chicken or pork) or 500 g of chopped meat (all meats are fine, beef, chicken or pork)
    • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
    • 2 cups water
    • 1/2 cup soy sauce
    • 2 tablespoons ketchup, manis
    • 2 -5 cups chopped vegetables, I love veggies so I added 5 cups (fresh or frozen)
    • 1 teaspoon vegetable stock powder or 1 teaspoon chicken stock powder or 1 teaspoon beef stock powder

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a large pan, fry the onion, garlic and ginger until the onion is translucent over a med/high heat.
    2. 2
      Add and fry the meat for no more than 2 minutes It needs to be just seared. Stir so it doesn't burn.
    3. 3
      Add the soy sauce and water (the water should almost cover the meat - not totally). Let simmer over a med. heat while you prepare the noodles (about 5 minutes).
    4. 4
      Prepare the noodles as per the pack instructions (place hot water in a bowl and add the noodles, let stand until they are re-hydrated and plyable).
    5. 5
      Snip the noodles, you want each strand to be short.
    6. 6
      Add the noodles plus 1 cup of the water from the noodles.
    7. 7
      Add the remaining ingredients. It will look soupy - this is normal.
    8. 8
      Stir and let simmer over a medium heart for 10-15 minutes.
    9. 9
      Serve as is!
