Stir fry the ground meat in a frying pan (no need to add any oil since the meat cooks in its own fat).
Combine the soy sauce, miso, mirin, ginger and garlic.
Add to the frying pan as you're stir-frying the meat.
Simmer for a bit and it's done.
Prepare the cucumbers as such. (With alternating strips running along their lengths.)
Julienne the cucumbers.
Here's the meat-miso!
Use your favorite memil guksu, or any other noodles that can be served cold.
Boil the noodles, drain and put on serving plates.
Top with the cucumber...
Pour the miso-meat sauce over, plus the sauce packs that come with the noodles...
And it's done!
Story Behind this Recipe
When steaming hot days continue, we all lose our appetites. That's when I make this recipe. I like that you can eat a lot of vegetables while slurping the cold, refreshing noodles. Vary the mixture of vegetables by using lettuce instead of cucumber, or adding tomatoes, and so on.
Change up the vegetables and find your favorite combination!
