10 minutes over low heat. Then return the beef along with 1 scallion,
minced, and stir in to reheat. (You may also add 2 eggs, beaten; stir them
in at the very end, over low heat, until they begin to set.)

In step 3, add 1 cup water to the soy sauce mixture. At the end of step 4,
do not remove beef fromcpan, but add 4 to 6 dried black mushrooms (soaked)
and 1 cup Chinese cabbage stems, both shredded. Stir-fry a few times. Then
add the soy-water mixture and vermicelli and simmer, covered, 5 minutes.
