Korean Beef Noodles (Seoul Food)

READY IN: 46mins
Recipe by PalatablePastime

These noodles are so deeply satisfying, that they must be considered soul food. The thick noodles with the savory beef and mushrooms makes such a hearty meal, there is almost no room for tea.

I was a bit concerned with the amount of soy sauce but this was very good. I added very thinly sliced red and yellow bell peppers which gave the finished meal nice colour. I will be making this again.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Slice beef thinly across the grain into pieces about 3-inches long (doing this while beef is partially frozen is best).
  2. Bring beef to room temperature.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together soy sauce, sesame oil, and sugar until sugar dissolves; set aside until needed.
  4. Cook the noodles in boiling water about 8-10 minutes or until tender; drain.
  5. While noodles are cooking, cook mushrooms in oil in a small skillet until softened, then remove and drain away the liquid that collects.
  6. Add the garlic, scallions and hot peppers to the skillet and cook on high for about 1 minute or until pepper becomes aromatic.
  7. Then add the carrot, steak and mushrooms.
  8. Cook the meat for 2-3 minutes but try not to overcook (as this is usually served on the rare side).
  9. Add the soy sauce mixture and cook about 2 minutes more.
  10. Place noodles on a serving platter and top with beef mixture, and toss together until mixed.
  11. Serve at once.
