Kimchi udon stir fry
I have something delicious and super easy for you to make this weekend – a bowl of kimchi udon stir fry!
This recipe is so easy, anyone can make it. It’s the perfect weekend recipe as it only takes a few minutes to stir fry and even less time to eat (since you will be slurping these kimchi noodles with major gusto!)
We always keep a tub of kimchi in our fridge for ’emergency’ situations – meaning whenever a dish desperately needs a kick of flavor. It’s a quick fix that always seems to hit the spot!
I usually stir fry udon noodles with a little dashi powder, soy sauce and butter (Japanese style yaki udon) but this time wanted something with flavors that were more assertive. A bowl of kimchi noodle stir fried with bacon, fresh chopped scallions and topped with a fried egg is exactly what I was craving! It’s the perfect marriage of sweet, umami, nutty, spicy and pungent. Classic flavor profile of Korean cuisine, which I adore with all my heart and tummy!
Ben made these noodles and was shocked by how amazing they were. “I would totally pay $15 for a bowl of this kimchi udon stir fry at a restaurant” he said. Better than take out? YES. WAY BETTER THAN TAKE OUT! And a lot cheaper too!
