Japchae is Korean mixed noodles. This japchae recipe is easy to make and yields the best japchae by using store-bought ingredients and sauce. | rasamalaysia.com
There are two types of Mizkan Soup Base: Mizkan Oigatsuo Tsuyu Bonito Flavored Soup Base (green label no MSG) and Mizkan Bonito Flavor Soup Base (red label with a little MSG). I used the former in this Japchae recipe.
You can add beef bulgogi to the japchae. Cook the bulgogi and then cut the beef into small, thin, and long pieces.
If you can't find fresh wood ear mushroom, you can use dried wood ear mushroom. Soak in warm water before using.
If your noodles are still wet after draining in a colander, pat dry with paper towels before mixing.
If you can't find Busan fish cake (pictured above), you can use other Korean, Japanese, or Chinese fish cake. Just cut the fish cake into thin strips.
