I agree that this was bland. We added soy sauce at the table, but it didn't really help much. I was disappointed because I really liked the noodles (my first time trying cellophane noodles) and the combination of vegetables. I don't know how to fix the sauce so I wouldn't make this again. I had to use a large metal Dutch oven to make this because I don't have a wok. Because of this I needed to use quite a bit of oil and the noodles still stuck a bit.

This recipe was simple to make and was an ok middle of the week quick meal. But, it was very bland. After tasting it, I doubled the soy sauce and sugar which made it good not great.

Simply yummy! I used ground turkey and fresh mushrooms instead of canned, and I only had rice noodles, but it was still very good. My boyfriend loved it, too! I made it as a surprise for him, because Chap Jae is one of his favorites. Thanks for a great recipe!
