My Fav Grow Hair Food Recipe is here...
Having traveled throughout Asia experiencing its rich culture, art and people, I’ve acquired a love for all things Korean and food is no exception.
And since I love Korean food so much, and because this site is all about growing and maintaining healthy hair, I thought I would share this wonderful hair growth recipe! Not only are the ingredients used in Korean recipes healthy, but the food also tastes wonderful!
One of my favorite Korean dishes that I love to make is Chap Chae (Jap Chae). You can see the pictures and video I produced on this page. Chap Chae is a mixed stir-fry vegetable, beef and noodle dish. If you don’t eat meat, you just simply remove the beef for this recipe. But because I love tasty beef, I’ve chosen to make this recipe exactly the way the Korean cooks do it.
Here is the recipe and ingredients needed for Korean Chap Chae!
1 pack (with 2 bunches) of glass noodles. If you buy them from your Korean grocery store, it’s called Daang Myun.
100 grams of beef thinly sliced
1 Onion sliced
1 Carrot thinly cut or grated into long strips
Green and Red Peppers (I just add these for extra flavor and because I like them so much!)
Shiitake Mushrooms (thinly slice about a dozen or so).
3 Cloves of Garlic Chopped
Green Onion Chopped
Sesame seeds to sprinkle on top of dish once complete and ready to serve.
Cook the glass noodles in water for 3-4 minutes. Add salt to the water for taste. Remove from heat and drain. Do not pour cold water on top of the noodles after they have been drained. There is no need to cool them down. Just let the noodles drain and cool on their own. However, it’s recommended that you add some sesame oil to the glass noodles so that they do not stick together while you are waiting to add the other ingredients. Sesame oil is also added for taste.
Next, cut up all of the vegetables and cook them with a pinch of salt, some soya sauce and some olive oil. Use about two table spoons of olive oil and heat your pan prior to placing in the vegetables. Sprinkle about a table spoon of raw natural sugar on top and mix in the vegetables. Once the vegetables are stir fried, remove from heat.
Note: It’s best to begin stir frying the carrots first as they take a bit longer to cook. Then it’s recommended that you add the spinach last, as it requires very little cooking time.
Season the beef using some sugar, your favorite mixed seasoning, chopped garlic and onions. Add some soya sauce and a hint of ketchup. (I love adding ketchup to beef. It adds really nice flavor to the dish). Another favourite ingredient of mine is cilantro. Even though the recipe does not include cilantro, I prefer to add one leaf of chopped cilantro to the beef for added taste. Then once the beef is seasoned, cook the beef along with the mushrooms.
Tasting your dish to ensure the flavour suits your taste is always a good idea.
Once the beef and mushrooms have finished cooking, add in the stir fried vegetables along with the cooked glass noodles. Mix everything together. Add more soya sauce and sesame oil to suit your needs.
Add it over a bowl of white rice, then serve!
