Jab Chae

My Korean student (I tutor her in English as a second language) gave me the recipe for Jab Chae and I made it today.  The glass noodles are made from sweet potato starch rather than flour.  There are plenty of vegetables and a small amount of beef.  I found lots of versions of this on the Internet, some of them vegetarian.  The glass noodles are very slippery.  Fortunately I was alone when eating it, so I could slurp with abandon.

Like many stir fries, there's a significant amount of preparation time, cutting the vegetables, cooking the noodles, etc.  However, the cooking goes very quickly.  This was delicious, and I expect to make it again.
