Japchae (Glass noodles stir-fried with vegetables: 잡채)

Full recipe: http://www.maangchi.com/recipe/japchae
Japchae, sweet potato starch noodles stir fried with vegetables and meat, is one of Korea’s best-loved dishes, and one of the most popular on my website as well.

Stir frying each ingredient separately seems like a lot of labor, but each one requires a different cooking time and a bit of care, and keeping the color and freshness of each ingredient intact makes for a stunning final presentation.

Maangchi, sorry for asking this question. Why korean always do not wash meat before start cooking. Every year i came to south korea for holiday and i wanna try sashimi. I saw the owner do not wash the fish, just wipe with tissue. I bought it but later end up with throw in dustbin.

rebeccafoo says:

Thank you Maangchi, I should use your recipe for my Japchae as I followed the Ocoo pot recipe, it made the glass noodle so soft. One day, when I buy another packet of Glass noodle, I will surely follow your recipe.
I saw you using your fingers to mix the noodle, surely use our finger as we always washed them well before touching the food but those, especially those never cook, always complained ” Wow, use your finger, should wear glove ! ” Even the chef was making dough for bread or pizza. How to wear glove to knead the dough ? The French and mostly the Western chef always used their fingers to mix salad too ! To me, God gives us fingers , why have to wear glove, the man made fingers !

It is not good for the body to separate the skin of an egg Noren.

Kenneth Felipe says:

I am going to try this dish without the meat. I also loved how you said to cook the vegetables at a separate cooking time. It made it seems more complex and it would make me taste the vegetable individually as I would preparing them. Your channel is amazing.
