My favorite movie is still either Parasite, directed by Bong Joon Ho or The Farewell, directed by Lulu Wang. It’s Oscar season again, so I’m reminiscing about these noodles from Parasite.
I finally made these last summer after buying a pack of Chapaghetti and a (family) pack of Neoguri, both from the Korean food giant, Nongshim. If you are fortunate enough to have an H-mart, Ranch 99, or some large Asian grocer in your area, these are easy to find. If not, try Amazon.
For meat, I used Washugyu beef – a cross between American Black Angus and Japanese Wagyu. I am fortunate enough to access to both an H-mart and a cute Japanese store called Maruichi. Thank you, Boston.
For Noodles: Cook both instant noodles in one pot of boiling water for about 5 min. Once cooked, strain 80% of the water into the sink. Add in the seasoning packets from both noodle packs. Mix quickly and remove from heat.
For Meat: Because I used decent quality beef, I chose to cook the beef separately in a skillet. I tossed the cooked meat on top of the cooked noodles and mixed lightly. Top with green onions, sesame seeds, or whatever you want honestly.
