Cook the rice noodles according to package directions. Drain and set aside.

Cut the beef into thin slices. Pour 1 tbsp. of light soy sauce over them and mix well.

Reheat the oil. Add the ginger and garlic. Saute over medium-high heat for about a minute. Add onions. Cook until no longer transparent. Pour in the meat broth and rice wine. Season with light soy sauce, salt, pepper and sugar. Bring to a soft boil. Add the julienned carrots, tofu and pechay baguio leaves. Simmer, covered, for 1 minute. With a slotted spoon, remove the carrots, tofu and pechay baguio leaves and set aside.
