Have you heard of Japchae or eaten it before in any Korean shops or restaurants? If you haven't, you need to try it. The fragrance of sesame oil and all the essential seasoning totally invades your sense of smell even before you eat it. That to me is, absolutely delectable and it beckons to me even before I could put it in my mouth ;)
When I saw this recipe from Holly, I immediately bookmarked it. A few years later, I never expected to be able to make this dish. And the best part is, I wanted to bang my head for not even wanting to attempt this much earlier. It's seriously not that difficult and even before you are done, your whole kitchen smells of sesame oil perfume ;P Awesome!!

Check out my rendition of my favourite Japchae. I totally heart this and I will definitely make this again. See my cheat tip below.
- After marinating the various ingredients with their seasoning ingredients separately, I began to saute the onion, mushrooms and meat together before dishing it up. Thereafter, I tossed the noodles into the pot, noodle seasoning and then put the spinach and the rest of the ingredients back into the pot.
