Kimchi E-Noodles

It's so good to be back to the kitchen. Despite Beijing's yummy treats and gorgeous, spacious, and luxurious hotel room, there's no place like home.

A home is where my..........
- large bottle of sweet soy sauce
- comprehensive collection of instant noodles
- huge sack of rice
- boxes of coconut milk
- crappy photo studio
- cheap but best hair dryer
- many bottles of almost finished fragrances
- wardrobe overflowing with clothes, bags and jewellries I hardly wear or use
- sous chef
.......................are LOL!

I was in the mood for kimchi flavored anything, and I miss the chewy but soft texture of e-min (not e-mail, it's e-noodle as in "e-fu noodles") I've decided to make

Kimchi E-Noodles

Sold in large plate-like pieces, dip it into hot water to soften and try to get rid of as mush oil as you can

Cabbage Kimchi
I love its instense flavor. It bites.

Prawn balls and Taiwanese Pork Mushroom Balls
Remember, always accessorize

Nicely Marbled Thinly Sliced Beef

(serves 4)
- 2 large pieces of e-min, softened
- 4 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
- 1 onion, thinly sliced
- 3 red chilli, finely chopped
- a small bunch of spring onions, roughtly chopped
- 1 cup of kimchi (adjust to suit your taste)
- prawn balls, meat balls, beef (or any other choice of meat/shrimps/anything you like)
- fish sauce, dark soy sauce, sweet soy sauce (or sugar)

Saute garlic, onion, chilli, add meat, kimchi, noodles, add sauces, add spring onion, mix well, serve

Oh, and home is also where my Internet (with huge bandwidth) and food pictures are ^_^

Hey, welcome back from Beijing.

You said accessorize? I'm all for wearing prawn and pork thingies for a quick snack on the go. Does that kind of fashion exist for men too? hehe :-)

The Kimchi Noodles look fantastic my dear!
