Alhamdulillah, after being immersed into very hectic week, finally..I'm Free! (just for a moment)..
Next week..SCHOOL!!

oh well, i would like to share this recipe from korea.
Specially to Nur Adibah Abdul Nasir (sorry for the delay).

JABCHAE, 잡채 (taken from wiki)

a Korean dish made from sweet potato noodles (called dangmyeon), stir fried in sesame oil with various vegetables (typically thinly sliced carrots, onion, spinach, and mushrooms), sometimes served with beef, and flavoured with soy sauce, and sweetened with sugar. It is usually served garnished with sesame seeds and slivers of chili. It may be served either hot or cold.

here is the recipe:

  • Starch noodles (or rather we called as Soo Hoon, Suun)
  • 150 grams of beef
  • Spinach
  • 1 medium size carrot
  • 1 medium size onion
  • mushrooms (shitake or white mushroom)
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 7-8 green onions
  • soy sauce, sesame oil, sugar, pepper, and sesame seeds

  1. Soak dried shitake mushrooms in warm water for a few hours until they become soft. Squeeze the water out of them and slice thinly.
  2. Slice a package of white mushrooms (2 cups’ worth).
  3. Cut a carrot into thin matchstick-shaped pieces 5 cm long.
  4. Cut 7 -8 green onions into 7 cm long pieces.
  5. Slice one onion thinly.
  6. Slice 150 grams of beef into thin strips.

  1. Boil 2 bunches of noodles in boiling water in a big pot for about 3 minutes. When the noodles are soft, drain them and put in a large bowl.
  2. Cut the noodles several times by using scissors and add 1 tbs of soy sauce and 1 tbs of sesame oil. Mix it up and set aside.
  3. Simmer the spinach and put it aside.
  4. On a heated pan, put a few drops of olive oil and your carrot strips and stir it with a spatula for 30 seconds. Put it into the large bowl (don’t burn it!).
  5. Place a few drops of olive oil on the pan and add your sliced onion. Stir it until the onion looks translucent. Put it into the large bowl with your carrots.
  6. Place a few drops of olive oil on the pan and add the sliced white mushrooms. Stir it for a bit and then put it in the large bowl.
  7. Place a few drops of olive oil on the pan and add your green onions. Stir for 1 minute and put it into the large bowl.
  8. Place a few drops of olive oil on the pan and add your beef strips and your sliced shitake mushrooms. Stir it until it’s cooked well, then add 3 cloves of minced garlic, ½ tbs soy sauce and ½ tbs sugar. Stir for another 30 seconds and then put it into the large bowl.
  9. Add 2 tbs of soy sauce, 3 tbs of sugar, 2 tbs of sesame oil, and 1 ts of ground pepper to the large bowl. Mix all ingredients, then sprinkle 1 tbs of toasted sesame seeds on the top.
  10. Serve with rice and Kimchi, or as a side dish

~Selamat Mencuba~

I took this recipe from my korean recipe book that i bought at Kinokuniya.
It is very easy to follow. As for me, to make it easier and time saving, i cooked all of them together and finally, i just add up the noodles.

All my family just love this dish!!
