A great Korean noodle recipe. I used these vegetables here but you can use whatever vegetables you like.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 3 cups water
  • ½ pound sweet potato vermicelli noodles
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, divided, or as needed
  • 3 ½ ounces beef tenderloin, cut into strips
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 carrot, cut into matchstick-size pieces
  • 2 spring onions, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons white sugar
  • ½ teaspoon sesame seeds
  • ½ teaspoon sesame oil

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Bring water to a boil in a pot; add vermicelli noodles. Cook noodles until clear and soft, 10 to 12 minutes. Drain noodles in a colander; let sit for 10 minutes. Rinse noodles with cold water. Cut the noodles 2 to 3 times.
  2. 2 Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a skillet over medium-high heat; saute beef, garlic, salt, and pepper until beef is cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer beef to a large bowl.
  3. 3 Heat 1 teaspoon oil in the same skillet; saute onion, salt, and pepper until slightly tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Add onion to beef. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in the same skillet; saute carrot, salt, and pepper until slightly tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Add carrot to beef mixture. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in the same skillet; saute spring onions, salt, and pepper until slightly tender, about 1 minute. Add spring onions to beef mixture.
  4. 4 Mix noodles with beef mixture.
  5. 5 Whisk soy sauce, sugar, sesame seeds, and sesame oil together in a bowl; pour over noodle mixture and mix well.
