Japchae


The key to this dish is the noodles - sweet potato starch noodles have a great slippery texture and become translucent when cooked. You'll find them at most Asian grocers.

You'll need

500 gm sweet potato starch noodles 100 ml vegetable oil 1 onion, thinly sliced 10 gm ginger (about 2cm piece), finely grated 2 garlic cloves, finely grated 600 gm (about 1/3) Chinese cabbage, shredded 100 gm each black fungi and shiitake mushrooms, sliced 250 gm beef fillet, thinly sliced 125 ml (½ cup) soy sauce 60 ml (¼ cup) Shaoxing wine 60 ml (¼ cup) rice malt syrup (see note) 2 tsp caster sugar 2 tsp sesame oil 2 eggs, beaten To serve: sesame salt
