Today's Cooking Class - Japchae!!

Today, I used carrots, white onion, green onions and napa cabbage. I usually also use zucchini, but didn't have any on hand. I really think you can use whatever veggies you like and even throw in some bulgogi or other meat.

In a Wok, saute the veggies (julienne or slice them) one by one in sesame oil and season with salt and pepper till tender, but still have a bite to them. I cooked the white onions and little bit of leftover napa cabbage together here.

Have a large bowl to throw them in till you're ready to combine.

Cook the glass noodles according to package directions, here's the kind I like to use.

Once cooked, drain and in a separate bowl, combine with sesame oil, soy sauce and a little sugar.

I use two eggs and heat up some sesame oil, then poor the beaten eggs into the Wok and tilt Wok in a circle till the egg spreads evenly into a thin omelette. Flip once and then slice julienne.

Heat vegetable oil in Wok and throw in some garlic, then add all the vegies, noodles and egg back to the Wok and cook until combined adding salt, sugar, soy sauce and sesame oil to taste.

Serve on a large plate and chow down!!! I ate mine with a side of kimchi today!! Yum!

Korean food rocks!


  1. I made this for my family once... they liked it all but the noodles. (texture? not sure) So next time we are going to use spaghetti noodles. I guess a mix of Korean and American is better that nothing at all. That is our family anyway!!!

  2. You are so talented at cooking!!! Makes me jealous and hungry!!
