Traditionally, bamboo shoots are not used in korean cooking. I advice subsititing the bamboo shoots for shitake mushrooms. Also, I would add yellow onions in addition to the green onions and more garlic. We Koreans incorporate a lot of garlic in our cooking. I do not usually add nappa cabbage to my version, but it is nice to add for the additional color.
this is not the correct way to make the original recipe. instead of napa cabbage and bamboo shoots try fresh(boiled) or frozen spinach drained with a little sesame oil on it... and adivce is to slighty sautee the veges before adding them to the noodles.. and it looks prettier if the carrots are cut into veritcal pieces.. and sauteed onions with this dish wouldnt be bad.. lol personally i love it the way my momma makes it
I work in a Korean run restaurant and every once in a while my bosses mom makes Chap Chae. It's my most favourite Korean dish. This is a very good recipe the only thing I changed was I used sweet potato noodles instead of the cellophane noodles.
Tastes almost exactly like my favorite Korean place's chap chae. I did not soak the noodles in warm water and instead boiled them for 5 minutes like the directions on the noodles indicated before draining them and setting aside for cooking. I did not add bamboo shoots or salt but I did add mushrooms. I plan on adding some red bell peppers and maybe onions next time. It ended up tasty and was quick and easy to make. Also tasted a lot better than chap chae recipes I've had from actual Korean cookbooks. Finally I think that this recipe is more like 2 servings.
This was very good. I used regular shredded cabbage instead of the napa and added a little bit more sugar. I also added some hot sauce toward the end of cooking and it really added a lot to the dish. I found that the noodles were a little too long and it made it hard to combine it with the meat and vegetables so I cut them into smaller pieces and it worked wonderfully. Very easy and tasty!
Having spent time in Korea and a frequent visitor to the local Korean restaurant I found this recipe to be very authentic...and not too hard to make! We doubled the recipe for a family of 4 though. Don't forget to make/buy the sidedish of kimchi.
Chap chae is one of my favorite Korean dishes... this is different than the version I'm used to but still very good. My friend Yeonsoon used to make this for parties when we were in college. Her version was made without meat and contained more sesame seeds and sesame oil. Thanks for a nice variation.
I cooked this for my Korean exchange student's birthday. She loved it. I made a few changes. I substituted the cellophane noodles for some noodles we got at the Asian store. They were long clear noodles made from potato starch. (She said those were the right kind to use.)And I added more soy sauce at her request. She also said she'd never seen the bamboo shoots in that recipe before. It came out very tasty and my whole family liked it - even my picky 1 1/2 year old loved eating the sticky noodles.
