[Cooking] Japchae - Korean noodle dish

Aneyong haseyo.
Have you ever seen a korean drama?  My husband and I love to watch (and read) because how neat, realistic, funny and educational they are.  We've seen a couple of k-dramas that featured their cuisine thereby influencing our taste buds.

This was my attempt to make Japchae which is a noodle dish.
We have several Filipino noodle dishes, called Pansit but it was my first time to cook using Potato starch noodles.  

Potato starch glasss noodles
Red and green bell pepper
Dehydrated mushrooms, and
Marinated thinly sliced beef.  

Soy sauce, sesame seed oil, salt and pepper to taste.

The procedure is very simple:  saute the beef and cook thoroughly.  
Add the vegetables but do not overcook.
For the noodles, bring water to a boil, add the glass noodles and cook per package instructions.  

Once cooked, add a little sesame seed oil and toss the noodles.

Place the sauteed mixture over the noodles and enjoy!

Enjoy your Korean food trip with a glass of barley tea.  YUM!
