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.
