One of Korea’s most popular noodle dishes, chapchae is traditionally served at celebrations. Quick and easy to cook, the delicate texture of the glass noodles combines perfectly with the crunchy vegetables and rich, sesame-infused strips of beef.


  • 250 g/9 oz dangmyun or glass noodles
  • 5 dried shiitake mushrooms


  1. Soak the dangmyun noodles in warm water for 30 minutes. When the soaked shiitake mushrooms have reconstituted and become soft, drain and slice them, discarding the stems.
  2. Combine all the marinade ingredients in a large bowl. Slice the beef into thin strips and add it, with the mushrooms, to the bowl of marinade. Coat well and leave to marinate for 20 min
