Bulgogi Potato Noodles - 불고기 당면

Hello from DC! I'm here to visit my BFF before flying off to LA (yay!). It so happens that my arrival coincides with my college's alumnus event and the DC bike party pride ride! My thighs are extremely sore from biking all day and night. But, it was sooo much fun. So many pink wigs, loud music, fluorescent garb and tandem bikes! It did start raining though, so my colorful makeup ran all over my face. Kind of looked like I was hit by a sparkly unicorn...how nice.

I'm excited to go back to LA, eat some decent Cali mex and ethnic foods. Stuff I miss sorely when I'm in Richmond. I also get to see my lovely mum, who promised to cook whatever delicious Korean food I want. Yahoo. So to start of the summer with lots of Korean cooking is this ever popular bulgogi recipe straight from my mum.



Bulgogi Dang Myun

makes 4-5 servings

1 lb rib eye, sliced thinly

Marinade
1 asian pear
1/2 onion
3-4 cloves garlic
5 tbsp soysauce
3 tbsp mirin or cooking wine
1 tbsp sugar
1/2 tbsp sesame oil
1 tsp pepper

2 green onions, diced
1/2 onion, sliced into half moons
1/2 bag of potato noodles (can be bought in a Korean Store; here's a pic)
sesame seeds, jalapeños or red dried chillies (optional)

  1. In a food processor, grind the pear, onion and garlic until minced. Pour in a wide bowl and mix in soysauce, mirin, sugar, sesame oil and pepper
  2. Marinate rib eye slices for at least 2-3 hrs (overnight is better). Make sure all the meat is covered with the marinade (I used food gloves and really massage it in)
  3. Boil the noodles according to package minus a minute, drain and rinse with cold water
  4. Heat a frying pan on medium high and heat a little bit of oil. Saute the onions until a little softened. Add the meat and also 3/4 cup of the marinade and discard the rest. Cook for 4-7 mins, stirring often
  5. When the meat is not quite pink, add in the cooked noodles. Add the green onions (hot chillies if using) and saute for another 2 minutes or until heated through
  6. Sprinkle sesame seeds and serve hot with a bowl of rice
