  • ½ pound Korean dang myun noodles

  • 2 ½ teaspoons sesame oil, divided

  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce

  • 2 teaspoons white sugar

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

  • 2 carrots, cut into match-stick size pieces

  • ½ pound asparagus, thinly sliced

  • ¾ cup thinly sliced onions

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 3 green onions cut into 1-inch pieces

  • ½ cup dried shiitake mushrooms, soaked until soft, then sliced into strips

  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds


  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil. Cook noodles in boiling water, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain, then rinse with cold water. Toss noodles with 1 teaspoon sesame oil; set aside.

  2. Whisk together soy sauce and sugar in a small bowl; set aside.

  3. Heat vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir carrots, asparagus, onions, and garlic in hot oil until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in green onions and mushrooms; continue cooking and stirring for 30 seconds.

  4. Pour in soy sauce mixture, then add noodles. Cook and stir until noodles are warmed through, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat and toss with sesame seeds and remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons sesame oil.
