Chapchae (Noodles With Beef and Mixed Vegetables)

"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."

    Couldn't find cellophane noodles at the grocery store, so I used rice noodles and it was a great dish. The beef was tender and the noodles were great. Make this because you'll love it!
