    Chef #329119's Note:

    From cookinglight. Chapchae is a Korean noodle dish. I think you can substitute the steak with other meats or seafood--it's mostly to add a little meaty flavor. * I use the sweet potato noodles for more authenticity in place of the bean thread noodles (I boil them for 5 minutes then rinse with cold water thoroughly). It takes a while to make this but it's really authentic and flavorful.

      Loved it! The flavor was perfect. I prefer using ground meat (beef or pork) for this.

      This was a really outstanding recipe which I can't wait to make again! I changed a few ingredients - I'd highly recommend using kochujang (Korean chilli paste), kochugaru (Korean red pepper powder) and most importantly the sweet potato starch noodles which are synonymous with japchae or chapchae and have quite a different texture to bean thread noodles. The result was great flavour and texture and a really addictive eat - thanks for posting!

      I was just going to post this recipe when I saw it here. I got it from a Korean cooking class my adoption (my daughter was adopted from Korea) agency had. It is wonderful. I usually either make my own bulgoki for the meat or for a faster dinner use pre-made from my local Korean market. The sauce is the best and my Exchange student from Korea said it tasted just like her mom's! P.S. The carrot and green onion should read 1 cup of each.
