Jap Chae

  • FAST
  1. 3 ounces dried cellophane noodles
  2. 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  3. 1 tablespoon water
  4. 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  5. 2 teaspoons sugar
  6. 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  7. 1 teaspoon Korean red pepper paste (kochujang)
  8. 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  9. 2 tablespoons canola oil
  10. 1/2 small yellow onion, thinly sliced lengthwise
  11. 1/2 pound shiitake mushrooms, stems discarded and caps thinly sliced
  12. 1 red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch matchsticks
  13. 2 small carrots, julienned
  14. 1/2 cup chopped chives
  1. In a large bowl, cover the noodles with hot water and let stand until softened, about 30 minutes. Drain and cover with a damp paper towel.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small nonstick skillet, toast the sesame seeds over moderately high heat until lightly browned and fragrant, about 4 minutes; transfer to a small bowl. In another small bowl, whisk together the water, soy sauce, sugar, sesame oil, Korean pepper paste and salt.
  3. In a large nonstick skillet, heat the canola oil until shimmering. Add the onion, mushrooms, bell pepper, carrots and chives and stir-fry over high heat for 2 minutes. Add the cellophane noodles and stir-fry for 2 minutes longer. Reduce the heat to moderate. Add the soy sauce mixture and toasted sesame seeds and toss gently to coat the noodles and vegetables. Transfer to bowls and serve.
