 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/4   lb           Bean thread noodles
    1       tb           Oil
    3       tb           Finely chopped scallions
    2       tb           Finely chopped garlic
    1       lb           Ground beef
                         -----SAUCE-----
    2       c            Chicken stock
    1 1/2   tb           Chili bean sauce
    1                    Dried red chile -- -ÿÿ
    1       t            -chili powder
    2       tb           Light soy sauce
    1       t            Sesame oil
 
   SOAK THE NOODLES in a large bowl of warm water for 15 minutes. When they
   are soft, drain them and discard the water. Cut them into 3-inch lengths
   using kitchen scissors or knife. Put 1 tablespoon of oil into a hot wok or
   pot, then add the scallions and garlic and stir-fry quickly for a few
   seconds. Add the meat and stir-fry until it is cooked. (This should take
   between 5 and 10 minutes.) Then add all the sauce ingredients, except the
   sesame oil and cook the mixture over a gentle heat for about 5 minutes. Now
   add the drained noodles and sesame oil and cook the mixture for a further 5
   minutes. Ladle some noodles and sauce into individual bowls or into one
   large serving bowl, and serve at once.
