  • 1 package Chapagetti (instant jajangmyeon noodles made by Nongshim)
  • 1 package Neoguri (instant jjampong noodles made by Nongshim)
  • 8 ounces sirloin or rib-eye steak preferably well-marbled, cut into 1/2-to-3/4-inch cubes
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 to 3 teaspoons vegetable oil


  • Bring 4 cups of water to a boil in a large saucepan or medium pot. Add the noodles and vegetable mix from the noodle packets, and boil for about 2 to 3 minutes until barely al dente (it will cook more later). Strain the noodles into a strainer set over a large measuring cup or bowl. Reserve 1 cup of starchy water.
  • Meanwhile season the cubed beef with salt and pepper. Heat the oil over high heat in a skillet. Add the beef, and sear for about 1 to 2 minutes per side, or to desired doneness. Remove from the heat.
  • Return the large saucepan or medium pot used to cook the noodles to medium heat, add the reserved water, the strained noodles/veggies, all the black bean paste seasoning powder from the Chapagetti, 1/2 (or more to taste--it's spicy!) of the spicy seasoning powder from the Neoguri, and the cooked beef. Stir for 1 to 2 minutes until everything is incorporated and starting to thicken. Remove from the heat and stir in the seasoning oil from the Chapagetti.
  • Transfer to individual bowls and serve immediately.
