Japchae (Korean Sweet Potato Noodles with Beef)

Sweet potato noodles are often used in a very popular Korean dish called japchae – it is made by stir-frying sweet potato noodles with various vegetables and meat and flavored with sesame oil, soy sauce and sugar. Just talking about it is making me drool already!” Jasline
