Notes

Use dried vermicelli instead of fresh Singapore noodles. Cooking time will vary. Ketjap manis is an Indonesian sweet soy sauce available in the Asian food section. You can use 2 tablespoons soy sauce combined with 1 tablespoon brown sugar instead. You can use budget beef rump steak cut into thin strips, or uncooked peeled prawns. Price will vary.
