Vermicelli noodles, sauteed in a sweet soy and sugar mixture. A great side dish to accompany fish or meat; or try serving as an entree at your next dinner party.
well jap chae isn't always this plain. Try adding pan fried spinach, finely sliced carrots (use a Mandolin), sliced shitake mushrooms, and if you want to add some kind of protein other than the mushrooms you can add finely sliced striped of meat ^^!~ - 02 Apr 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I am the publisher of this recipe, and just wanted to mention, as I said, this is definitely not a real Jap chae, it is more of an appetizer that is sweet and very delicate. There are many wonderful Jap Chae recipes on this site that include vegetables and meats. - 07 Nov 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This turned out great. The first time I made this I followed the recipe exactly, perhaps adding a bit more brown sugar to fit my taste. The second time, I just boiled the vermicelli as I would regular pasta - it cooked WAY faster. I also skipped the skillet part, because the first time my noodles stuck and it made no difference in taste. Instead, I just added a bit of sesame oil - a little goes a long way here - and tossed the noodles with the sesame seeds. The oil seemed to bring all the flavors together much better than the first time. - 07 Aug 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
