Oscar-winning Noodles – Chapaguri

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.

Chapaguri aka Ramdon from the movie 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.

This homemade Chapaguri won me a feature on the Nongshim official Instagram. Shameless plug – follow my IG for more short content and videos: nomsforangela.
