Grandma's Yummy Chinese Beef Noodles

This is a favorite dish of the grand kids, even Senorita Stella who is among the most picky of eaters. The flavors of the woodears and shittake mushrooms are so unique and delicious. Once you have tasted this one, you will surely want more. It is a definite favorite of Lizabetti who especially loves the spinach.
