8ouncestender beef (such as sirloin, ribeye, NY strip)
salt and pepper
1tablespoonolive oil or other cooking oil
2 garlic cloves, roughly crushed - optional
1pack Chapagetti (짜파게티)
1pack Neoguri (너구리)
Cut the beef into bite size pieces and generously sprinkle with salt and pepper. At this point, start boiling 4 cups of water in a medium size pot.
Heat a pan with a tablespoon of olive oil or other cooking oil. Add the meat and the optional garlic, and cook all sides to the slightly less than desired doneness.
When water boils, add the noodles and the vegetable mix from the packets and continue boiling for about 3 minutes. The noodles should be al dente at this point because they will be cooked again.
Transfer the noodles with a strainer to the pan with the steak, reserving the water. Pour a cup of the reserved water over the noodles. Turn the heat to medium. Add the entire packet of the Chapagetti sauce and 3/5 of the Neoguri sauce (or to taste).
Stir everything well until the sauce is evenly distributed and slightly thickens, about a minute. Add more reserved water if needed. Turn the heat off.
Stir in the oil from Chapagetti. Serve with pickled radish or kimchi.
