Ingredients

MAIN

  • 2 packs udon noodles (total 400g)
  • 4 slices rindless short cut bacon (chopped into thumbnail size pieces) (*see note above), 120g
  • 1 cup aged Kimchi (chopped into thumbnail size pieces)
  • 50 g onion thinly sliced
  • 30 g green onion thinly sliced
  • Some cooking oil (I used rice bran oil)

SAUCE (MIX THESE IN A BOWL)

GARNISH (THESE ARE OPTIONAL, BUT THEY CERTAINLY ENHANCE THE FLAVOUR!)

  • 2 eggs (soft boiled or pan-fried)
  • Few sprinkles ground black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp toasted sesame seeds
  • 1 Tbsp green onion (thinly sliced)
  • Few strips Korean roasted seasoned seaweed

Instructions

  • Boil the udon noodles per manufacturer’s instructions. Drain the water. Set aside. (Ideally, step 1 and step 2 should start at the same time so that you use the fresh, warm and not sticky noodles.)
  • Heat a pan/skillet on medium-high heat and once heated add some cooking oil and spread it thinly. Add the bacon and cook for 2 to 3 mins. Stir occasionally.
  • Add the onion and Kimchi and cook until they are wilted (about 1 to 2 mins). Add the sauce and mix them well.
  • Add the udon noodles and mix them with the rest of the ingredients. Add the green onions and stir lightly.
  • Serve the noodles on a plate and garnish with the egg, ground black pepper, more green onions, sesame seeds, and seaweed strips.

Notes

*1 Tbsp = 15 ml, 1 Cup = 250 ml
