  1. Soak noodles in cold water for 30 minutes. Drain. Bring water to the boil in large pot. Add noodles, and boil 3 to 5 minutes - don't overcook. Drain, and rinse with cold water. Set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, combine beef stock, ginger, salt and chilli in a saucepan. Bring to the boil, and simmer for 15 minutes.
  3. Place equal portions of noodles into 4 large soup bowls, and place raw beef on top. Ladle hot stock over noodles and beef. Garnish with lime wedges, basil leaves, coriander, bean sprouts and spring onions, and serve with hot pepper sauce and oyster sauce.


If you desire your beef to be a little more well done, add the strips to the stock during the last 2 minutes of simmering.
