But wait! I've only just begun. I tend to overdo on Mother's Day.
I did all of the toppings first and then assembled it.
1 pound package Starch noodles found in Korean Markets (Dangmyun)
2 stripped slices of thinly sliced ribeye, the type used in cheese steak sandwiches. Also found in the Korean Market!
1 bunch of spinach, washed good with stems removed and then cut a few times
1 carrot, cut into thin matchstick pieces
1 medium size onion, sliced thin
½ cup dried ****ake mushrooms, soaked until they become soft. Squeeze out and slice. (optional)
1 package of white mushrooms, sliced (optional)
3 cloves of minced garlic
8 diced green onions
1 T soy sauce,
sugar to taste
sesame seeds for garnish
Boil noodles in boiling water in a big pot for about 4 minutes. When the noodles are soft, remove them from the water and put in a large bowl. Cut the noodles several times by using scissors and add 1 T of soy sauce and 1 T of sesame oil. Mix it up and set aside.
In the boiling water, add a bunch of spinach and stir it gently for 1 minute. Then take it out and rinse it in cold water 3 times. Remove any grit or dead leaves thoroughly while rinsing. Squeeze it gently to get the water out, then cut it into 5 cm pieces. Add ½ tbs soy sauce and ½ tbs sesame oil and mix it in. Set aside.
Stir fry the carrot strips in a teaspoon of olive oil for a minute. Put it into the large. In another teaspoon of olive oil sauté the sliced onion. Stir it until the onion looks translucent.
In another teaspoon of olive oil saute the sliced white mushrooms. Set aside.
Do the same with the green onions.
Now do the same with the beef strips along with the ****ake mushrooms. Stir it until it’s cooked well, then add the garlic, ½ tbs soy sauce and ½ tbs sugar. Stir for about 30 seconds and set aside. Add 2 tbs of soy sauce, 3 tbs of sugar, 2 tbs of sesame oil, and 1 tsp of ground pepper to the large bowl.
Put all the vegetables and meat on top of the noodles and mix up everything.
Sprinkle 1 tbs of toasted sesame seeds on the top. I adjusted to sesame oil, sugar, soy and black pepper at the end.
