  1. In a large pan, fry the onion, garlic and ginger until the onion is translucent over a med/high heat.
  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. 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. 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).
