Gochujang (Korean Spicy Miso) that I bough to cook a Korean dish has been sitting in the fridge for nearly a year. I wanted to use it up, so I cooked this ‘Bulgogi’ inspired stir-fried Beef Udon for my lunch today, and it was so delicious. I must write down how I cooked it. If you like spicy food, you may wish to add more Gochujang, but 1/2 tablespoon is pretty hot.
80 to 100g Beef *thinly sliced
1/4 bunch Garlic Chives *about 30g
1/2 tablespoon Sesame Oil
1 serving Udon *frozen type recommended
Toasted Sesame Seeds
1/2 clove Garlic *grated
1/2 tablespoon Gochujang (Korean Spicy Miso)
1 tablespoon Soy Sayce
1 tablespoon Mirin
1/2 teaspoon Sugar
- Cut all Vegetables into 4cm thin strips or pieces. Prepare Udon Noodles. If you use Frozen Udon, simply warm in hot water and loosen.
- Combine all the sauce ingredients in a small bowl.
- Heat Sesame Oil in a frying pan over medium heat, cook Carrot, Onion and Beef slices. When Beef is cooked, add Garlic Chives and stir-fry for a minute. Then add the sauce and stir to combine.
- Add drained Udon Noodles, and stir for 1 minute or until well combined. Sprinkle with some Toasted Sesame Seeds and enjoy.
