This was an outstanding recipe! Loved it and next time will absolutely top it with a fried egg. I added shredded carrots to give it a tad more veggies. The sauce is perfect as was the amount of kimchi to use. So easy & quick...your family will think you picked this up on the way home from work. Perfec weeknight meal or weekend lunch! Read More

Easy to make, quite spicy (adjust easily with less sriracha) well liked by the family, very filling. I added some baked chicken and salad to add for the picky eaters. Read More

This turned out pretty salty for my tastes, and the overall balance just didn’t feel right. Read More

Yummy and easy! I recommend going lighter on the sriracha if you have anyone in your family who likes less spice then you can always add more to the individual dishes. Read More

This was so easy to make! I skipped the sriracha sauce because I don't like spicy foods and thought the kimchi was enough. My husband liked it and he loves spicy foods and he didn't need to add hot sauce. This recipe was so flavorful and will definitely make it again. I think I will add extra veggies next time like carrots and/or maybe celery. Read More

I cooked some chicken breast with the garlic before adding the noodles. I will stir fry a couple eggs in next time too. Read More

Unfortunately, I overcooked the noodles so they were a bit mushy. I followed the recipe but added more kimchi and hot chili sauce because we thought it needed more heat. We'll make this again but be mindful of the noodles. Read More
