Jap Chae (Korean noodle dish)

Also spelled as Jap Chae, Chab Chae, Chap Chae.

I have been a bad, bad blogger. I promise to post a lot of recipes this week! I made this for dinner tonight (after having it 3 times in the past week at 2 different Korean restaurants). This Korean noodly dish is sweet and savory, but very light – the noodles I used are yam noodles that are low in calories but high in fiber and nutrients. This is definitely my favorite Korean dish (followed closely by Bi Bim Bap), and I hope you’ll give it a try.
