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

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

Really easy to make, and very tasty. I made a few minor adjustments, given what I had in the pantry and kid preferences. Substituted the sriracha with a dash of milder but tasty gochujang in the sauce, and just put sriracha out on the table. I was a bit short on noodles, but added a couple of chopped chicken breasts, sauteed in about 1T of the extra bacon grease. I also doubled the sauce, to flavor my otherwise unseasoned chicken. We all gobbled up my adjusted version, and I think this would be equally delicious made exactly to the recipe. Read More
