I'm suffering from severe headache at the moment while writing this blog entry,
It's like a snare drum, being my head, continuously getting hit by gigantic sticks...
Don't get me wrong, I deeply enjoy working on my blog,
Just all that head sticking out of the car window idea turned out badly,
The wind was blowing right at my scalp, maybe I should say right into my brain cells,
Thus causing all these pains...
What? Why did I stick my head out of the car window?
Maybe I was trying to share a view with a family pet?
You know how dogs like to stick their heads, and even their tongues out, it seems fun!
Or maybe something smelled so bad in the car that I was dying for some fresh air?
Mmmm......Let's not go there...
Let me finish the recipe here.
Korean influenced stir fry glass noodles-
Ingredients (for 5 to 6 plates)?
1 tablespoon of soy sauce
1 tablespoon of oyster sauce
1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce (I can never pronounce it right..)
1 teaspoon of Korean chili paste
1 teaspoon of sake or Chinese cooking wine
1 teaspoon of honey
200 grams of dried glass noodles
2 oz of dried sliced shitake mushroom
1.5 cups of kimchi
1/3 cup of kimchi juice
1 lb of sliced pork (about 18 to 20 slices)
1 medium carrot (cut into thin strips)
3 garlic cloves (peeled, minced)
1 stalk of scallion (remove the stem, cut into 3 to 4 shorter strips)
1/2 onion (cut into slices)
4 tablespoons of soy sauce
2 tablespoons of oyster sauce
2 teaspoons of Korean chili paste or sriracha sauce
Toasted sesame seeds
*That's probably the longest list of ingredients I've ever written for my blog...
But we shall not be daunted by it!
So combine all the marinade ingredients with sliced pork,
Mix well and let it sit in the fridge for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.
When the meat is ready, clean up and chop up all the other ingredients,
For dried mushrooms, simply soak it in lukewarm water for 10 to 15 minutes,
Drain out the excess liquid and it'll be ready for cooking.
Bring a big pot of water to a boil, toss in dried glass noodles and cook according to the package instruction.
Meanwhile, have a big pan ready, drizzle some oil and turn to high heat.
Toss in sliced onions and sprinkle some salt.
Cook till the onions turned slightly translucent, add the scallions and garlic, give it a quick stir.
Toss in sliced pork along with all the remaining marinade, cook till 70% done,
Add the vegetables in (sliced mushroom, carrot strips, and kimchi),
About couple minutes, it's time to add the seasonings.
Add 4 tablespoons of soy sauce, 2 tablespoons of oyster sauce, your choice of additional Korean chili paste or sriracha, and 1/3 cup of kimchi juice,
Mix well with the ingredients and let it cook for few minutes to the flavor soaked into the veggies.
Give it a taste, see if more seasonings are needed.
The noodles should be done by now, drain out excess water and transfer to the pan,
Mix well with the sauce, serve with toasted sesame seeds.
This recipe also applies to other type of noodles such as egg noodles, ramen, even spaghetti.
Please enjoy! I gonna go play some music while the base drums are still banging in my head.
