Made this without the short ribs last night for dinner with some bulgolgi beef that I picked up from the market. This noodle dish accompanied the beef perfectly. I didn't have any sunflower/safflower oil so used canola which worked just fine.

I had never had stir fried vermicelli until now. I loved it! I loved all the vegetables together, especially the mushrooms. I usually smother everything in soy sauce, but this didn't need a whole lot because it was already so flavorful.

Found Korean vermicelli noodles at an Asian Market in my neighborhood. First time trying and loved it. Used chicken instead of beef and it was fantastic. Used a soy and sesame dressing for tossing and it was perfect.

Skipped the meat all together and just did the veggies stir-fried in oil. I really liked the thin cellophane noodles, I think they're a new favorite. Great for lunch and weeknights.

Lots of great flavor and perfect for making ahead of time. Also used tamari instead of soy sauce. I think this is my favorite new stir fry now.
