Spicy Mixed Noodles (Bibimmyeon)

This sweet and spicy noodle recipe has quickly become a favorite in our house. There are a few ingredients that you might have to get from an Asian grocery, but it's very much worth it. I recommend doubling the recipe!

Spicy Mixed Noodles
비빔면 ("Bee-beem-myeon")

Beef Marinade
1/4 lb beef (any cut that holds up well to stir frying)
4 to 6 white button mushrooms
1 Tbs light soy sauce (or 2 tsp soy sauce + 1 tsp water)
2 tsp finely chopped green onions
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp sesame oil
ground black pepper to taste

Chili Pepper Sauce
2 Tbs Korean hot pepper paste
3 Tbs soy sauce
2 Tbs brown sugar
1 Tbs sesame oil

Other Ingredients
1 small cucumber
2 hard-boiled eggs
10 oz somyeon (thin, dried wheat noodles - can substitute angel hair noodles)

1. Prepare the beef marinade, set aside for about 30 minutes.
2. Prepare the chili pepper sauce and set aside.
3. Julianne the cucumber and slice the eggs.
4. Cook the beef and mushroom mixture until the beef is fully cooked. Set aside to cool.
5. Boil the noodles, then drain and rinse.
6. Mix the noodles with the sauce. Add noodles to individual bowls and top with beef mixture, cucumber, and eggs.

Serves 4. Diners should mix the toppings with the noodles before enjoying. :-)
