    Made no changes at all and was delicious. Unlike the first time i tried this in Korea some years ago, when i was told (afterwards) they made it with domestic dog. I was ill for days and never revisited!!  -  17 Mar 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Always happy to be introduced to new (at least to me) gluten free noodles. These will become a frequent menu component in my house. My package said to cook for five minutes, so I followed the package instead of the recipe. They are more like a glass noodle than starchy rice versions. I didn't follow step 3, I just sautéed everything together instead of each single ingredient separately. I added a bit of rice vinegar to the sauce but it is good as written. I added hot peppers and bok choy to the sauté. Thank you for the recipe.  -  01 Jun 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
