It was really easy to make and I found all the ingredients in my local grocery store, which is saying a lot. I am sure a few of you have figured out that the new base that we live at has very limited range of food. So I was pretty happy when I saw that the commissary actually sold hoisin sauce and vermicelli. However if you cannot find vermicelli you can use spaghetti instead. You might need to buy a few ingredients that you might not have on hand but it will be well worth it because you will be making this recipe again soon after. Oh yeah, it is that good.
