I made them from the packet ! I followed the pictures as obviously I couldn't read the instructions. I boiled and rinsed the noodles, blancehd the veggies and put my sliced lamb on top. The spicy sweet-ish chilli goes really well with lamb. I really like the texture its not like any noodles I have ever had before. Please share a recipe with us milly !! P/S I couldnt access your site last night again *sob*

Kirk ... whats naengmyun??

where they the weird stretchy noodles you are supposed to cut with scissors?

Hi Rachel - It's Korean Style Buckwheat Noodles - they are the ones that a very rubbery and "stretchy", and you cut them with a scissors - you can get them in a "cold" soup, or just by themselves (BiBim Naengmyun)

Kirk is right it is the buck wheat noodles, stringy and stretchy and you can get them cut them with scissors. The original recipe is from A Korean Mothers cooking notes, but I have altered it. I do not remember how many people it serves. I'm thinking 3-4 people. I usually just go by taste how Mom taught me, but this recipe is good, and easier for me to explain if I can't show you.

Kimchi BiBim Nengmyun

2 Korean or Japanese cucumbers Cut into diagonal ovals and then into match sticks.

1/2 pound of noodles

2 cups Kimchi chopped (do not drain kimchi)

1/2 pound of rib eye thinly sliced into thin strips*

1 Tbsp of vinegar

2 eggs hard boiled

Mixture A

1 Tbsp sesame oil
2 Tbsp of sesame salt or sesame seeds
1 Tbsp sugar

Mixture B ( I usually double to quadruple this mixture)

1 Tablespoon kochujang (Korean red pepper paste)
1 tsp of sugar**
1 tsp sesame oil

Mixture C

1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbsp of sesame oil.

* You may use pulgogi sauce to marinate the beef
** Kochujang may be already sweet so taste the hot sauce first before addinf sugar. Also you may have to make more of this sauce depending on how much each diner perfers to eat their noodles.


Saute beef in sesame oil, and set aside.

Mix kimchi with Mixture A

Boil the noodles, and when done rinse under cool water, and drain. Mix noodles with mixture C.

Method one:

Add the meat, kimchi, and mixture B. You may have to make more of mixture B to taste. Mix everything together. Add the vinegar last and mix again. Then add 1/2 boiled egg and cucumbers for each serving. Enjoy!

method 2:

Place noodles in bowls. Place kimchi and meat in each bowl. Place a 1/2 of a hard boiled egg in each bowl. Place cucumber in last.

Put mixture B to taste in each bowl with vinegar to taste. Eat and enjoy.

Wow, great recipe - Mills says it'll serve 3-4, but I could probably eat it all myself...BTW Rachel I just found out only us, "foreigners" or little kids have the noodles cut with a scissors - you ate it the way it was supposed to be!

At 8:17 PM, Blogger Rachel said...

lol that would make conversation stilted if we were serving that recipe for dinner and no one cut it :)
However, thats the way it is with good food ! No one talks when things are ecstatically yummy.
But mmm yeah I really loved the chewy-ness. I'm glad you got your fix recently too.

Kirk, is right we usually never cut the noodles except for children, and foreigners. I will try to do a kimchi post supposedly my mother and I are supposed to make kimchi soon.


I will try to a do a korean run on my blog. I don't know when but hopefully soon.

Only enough for one huh? LOL Well I am pretty bad at following recipes, so maybe I should put the serving size to 1 or in a pinch 2? :D
