  1. Soak the noodles for 30 minutes in cold water or boil them for one minute and steep them in the hot water for five minutes before draining.

  2. Mix the beef with the cornstarch and soy sauce and let sit for 30 minutes while the noodles are soaking.

  3. Add 2 tablespoons vegetable oil to the wok or large skillet on high heat and add the beef slices individually searing them 30 seconds on each side.

  4. Lower the heat to medium and add in the remaining oil, garlic and ginger, cooking for 15 seconds.
