Assembling the spring rolls
Dip a rice paper sheet in a large bowl of warm water for 1 second to soften. Lay it on a clean kitchen cloth to absorb excess water and transfer to a flat clean working surface.
About 1 inch below the centre of the sheet, place a handful of ingredients (vermicelli, herbs, vegetables, 2 strips of beef) in a row, leaving about 2 inches uncovered on the left and right sides.
Fold in the bottom flap to cover the ingredients followed by the left and right flaps, and tightly roll the sheet.
Repeat steps 1 – 3 to make the rest of the spring rolls.
