Cook and cut the vermicelli

Bring a pot of salted water to the boil and then add in the vermicelli noodles; cook for 3-4 minutes or until just cooked through. Strain and refresh the noodles with cold water. Roughly chop the noodles into short lengths with scissors or a knife and reserve for later.

Cook beef mince and set aside

Heat some oil in a wok over a high heat, add the beef mince and fry while using a spatula to break up the mince for about 4-5 minutes or until the mince is cooked through. Stir in the Chinese 5 spice and place aside for later. Add a little more oil to the wok along with the garlic, ginger, and chilli and cook for just under 1 minute or until aromatic. Now add in the broccoli, cabbage, snow peas, soy sauce, sesame oil; if you like a little sweetness add the brown sugar. Cook stirring for about 2-3 minutes. Add in the beef mince, boiled noodles and spring onion and stir to combine.
