Kimchi Noodles with Beef & Fried Egg

This noodle dish is my ultimate go-to when I need something quick for lunch. It’s easy, deliciously healthy and for a valid reason, I come back for more every time! I’ve had people on Instagram asking for the recipe whenever I cook this, and I can understand why: it has noodles and kimchi in it. It’s that simple! Kimchi and noodles are the ultimate comfort food no matter what time it is. What makes this even better is to top it off with a beautiful fried egg with crispy edges and a runny yolk (mmmmm). I usually make this before I head off for lectures in the afternoon but feel free to cook this for dinner too (or whenever you want to, you’re the boss).



1/2 a red chilli, sliced

1cm ginger, sliced

1 spring onion

A small handful of mangetout

1/2 cup kimchi

Leftover beef (minced pork would go well too)

1 bunch of noodles of your choice

1 egg

For the sauce:

1 tsp Gochujang red pepper paste

1 tsp sesame oil

1 tbsp soy sauce

1 tsp mirin



  1. First, prep your ingredients as shown in the picture above. Make sure the red chilli, ginger, spring onions and mangetout are of the same size so they will cook evenly.
  2. To make the sauce, add gochujang red pepper paste, sesame oil, soy sauce and mirin in a bowl. Mix well and set aside.
  3. Cook the noodles of your choice according to the packet instructions. Drain and set aside.
  4. In a pan, heat up some oil to fry the red chilli and ginger for a minute. Add in the rest of the mangetout and spring onions and let it cook for 2 minutes.
  5. Add in the beef, kimchi and the sauce we made earlier into the pan. Let it cook for another 2 minutes before adding the noodles. Make sure the noodles are coated evenly with the delicious sauce!
  6. Fry an egg, sprinkle some sesame seeds & chilli flakes and voila, you’re done!


I cook this dish so often that I associate this ‘creation’ as my masterpiece whilst studying at the university 😂 Hope you’ll find inspiration in this recipe and recreate it soon!



Shiitake Mushroom Omelette

Eggs are very versatile. You can poach them, scramble them, and basically do anything with them! My favourite way to eat eggs at home is to make an omelette because they’re so easy to make and they go well with everything. I used shiitake mushrooms for this omelette because I like the nuttiness it gives. The saltiness and tanginess from the bacon and sun dried tomatoes gives it a little edge, while the avocado gives it the creaminess it needs for the perfect brunch.


To recreate this dish, you would need:

2 eggs, beaten

1/2 tsp mirin

1/2 tsp worcestershire sauce

1 rash of bacon

3 fresh shiitake mushrooms, sliced

2 sun dried tomatoes, diced

1/2 an avocado, sliced

Chilli flakes

Black pepper

Tabasco sauce


  1. Add mirin and worcestershire sauce to the beaten eggs. Mix well and set aside.
  2. Dice the bacon and fry it in a pan until crispy. Once done, place it on a kitchen towel to drain excess oil.
  3. In the same pan, fry the shiitake mushrooms for 3 minutes or until browned. Set aside.
  4. Cook the omelette in a pan for 3 minutes.
  5. To serve, place sliced avocado, bacon, shiitake mushrooms and sundried tomatoes at the centre of the omelette. Season with chilli flakes, black pepper and tabasco sauce.

Enjoy this omelette at any time of the day with a fresh glass of orange juice or a freshly brewed cup of coffee 🙂 I’d love to hear from all of you so please a comment!

Much love,
