Japchae (Korean Glass Noodles)

This is my absolute favorite when we eat out at a Korean Barbeque restaurant and it goes really well with whatever meat and sides there is. That’s when I decided I should make one at home so I can eat it whenever I crave for one. The recipe has exact flavor to my liking and I hope yours too. Enjoy! I will be uploading more recipes.
