Korean Beef Noodles (Seoul Food)

Total Time
Prep 25 mins
Cook 21 mins

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.

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.

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.

Oh, YUM!!! Even the kids liked it (without the pepper- we shook on red pepper flakes at the table). Hubby says this is definitely a keeper! Thanks, Sue!

This was excellent. Added a little lime juice just because I love the taste.
