  • Soak the bihon or rice noodles in warm water, for 5-10 minutes or until they turn soft. Drain on a colander and set aside. Prepare the garlic, onions, and vegetables.

  • Put in the shrimps and cook until pinkish in color. Remove from the skillet and set aside. Next stir-fry carrots and green beans for 1 minute then add fish sauce and soy sauce and stir until well incorporated.
  • Pour in the shrimp broth and bring to a boil until beans and carrots are tender. Add cabbage and let simmer until soft. Remove vegetables from skillet to avoid overcooking and set aside.
