"After lots of trial and error, I have managed to recreate one of my favorite appetizer dishes served at a Korean restaurant. While this is not the traditional Jap Chae that includes meats and vegetables, this one is sweet and delightful. Great served as an appetizer or a side dish to chicken and meat! Enjoy."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 pkg. (8 serving size)
sweet potato vermicelli
reduced-sodium soy sauce
toasted sesame seeds
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 ^^!~
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.
I have been looking for this recipe for a while and I am glad that I found. It tastes very good, and the roasted sesame seeds adds such a nice flavor to the dish.
this was good. i used more sesame oil for flavor. the kids love this. i went out to buy korean soy sauce just because its not as strong. & at one point i added meat & cabage with shredded carrots. for color. it became a meal. but this was great.
I mixed about 1/2 teaspoon of sesame oil with the soy and sugar. I also added some blanched spinach, and garnished the finished product with thinly sliced eggs.
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.
This is a very simple yet delicious, I want some more, can't stop eating recipe :9
Super yummy. I tossed in a chopped up green onion and all I had was dark soy sauce but I cut it down to 1/8th cup IF THAT... I just finished my meal and I'm super satisfied. Maybe next time I'll toss in some greenery and chicken and make it a little more substantial. =D
