Korean Banquet Noodles - Party of Two

One of my favorite Korean noodles. Traditionally eaten on special occasions like weddings. But who is going to wait for that? Whip-it-up at home for a party of two. 
Course: Medium
Servings: 2 people

Ingredients

Noodles & Broth

  • Thin wheat noodles - 200 grams Somyeon Noodles
  • Water - 4 cups
  • Zucchini - ½ a whole
  • Onion - ½ a whole
  • Carrot - ¼ a whole
  • Shiitake mushrooms - 3
  • Eggs - 2
  • Soy sauce - 2 Tablespoons
  • Soup soy sauce - 2 Tablespoons
  • Salt - ½ teaspoon

Topping Sauce

  • Scallions - 4 stalks
  • Cheongyang chili peppers - 1.5 peppers
  • Water - 2 Tablespoons
  • Soup soy sauce - 2 Tablespoons
  • Soy sauce - 2 Tablespoons
  • Gochugaru Korean red chili flakes - 1 Tablespoon
  • Sesame seeds - 1 Tablespoon
  • Sesame oil - 1 Tablespoon
  • Minced garlic - 1 teaspoon
  • Sugar - ½ teaspoon

Instructions

Make Topping Sauce

  • Cut the scallions into 1 cm pieces and slice the Cheongyang chili peppers into small pieces.
  • Place scallions and peppers into large mixing bowl. Then add minced garlic, red chili flakes, sugar, sesame seeds into bowl - give it a thorough mix. Then add soy sauce, soup soy sauce, water and sesame oil. Give a good mix.

Cook Noodles

  • Place water into a pot and bring it up to a boil. Once it is boiling, place in the thin wheat noodles.
  • Foam will begin to rise to the top - put a dash of cold water into the pot to bring the foam back down. Repeat this process about 5x and the noodles should be fully cooked through.
  • Pour out noodles into a sieve and place them under cold running water to stop the cooking process. Wash the noodles thoroughly and then squeeze out the excess water. Set aside and move onto broth.

Cooking Broth

  • Slice the onion, zucchini, carrot and mushrooms into long strips (julienne cuts).
  • Pull out a large pot and pour in water (4 cups), soy sauce (2 Tablespoons) and soup soy sauce (2 Tablespoons). Bring the pot up to a boil and add salt. Then pour in all of the vegetables and wait until the pot comes back up to a boil.
  • Let the vegetables boil for 1 minute (they should then be soft and fully cooked). After one minute, pour eggs in a circular motion into the soup (optional step). Turn off heat and you are ready to serve.
  • To serve, put a handful of the noodles into a bowl and pour soup on top of the noodles. Place a spoonful of topping sauce on top.
