Vermicelli Noodles Recipe With Step By Step Photos

Here is another recipe brought to you by my mother! It is another Cambodian dish that is frequently eaten at our home. In it there are vermicelli noodles, shrimp, slices of beef, a handful of herbs and veggies, and it is flavored with fish sauce. After eating this simple meal it gives me this light, healthy, guilt free feeling from eating something so full of veggies. The herbs were actually even grown at our own home, and freshly picked for this meal!
