If the japchae has cooled into a clump, lightly microwave it to loosen up the noodles. Cut the noodles into 1-2 cm lengths. I recommend using scissors to avoid dirtying your cutting board.
Combine the ● ingredients in a bowl, then mix in the japchae from Step 1. Pour a generous amount of sesame oil into a frying pan, then spread the mixture out into a very thin pancake. Fry both sides until golden brown, then serve.
It tastes good as-is, but I recommend serving it with mayonnaise if you're using japchae leftovers If you're using stir-fried cellophane noodle leftovers, since flavorings vary, use your choice of sauce.
This is the recipe I used for making japchae (Recipe ID: 1740854). Even without meat, this japchae is delicious.
Story Behind this Recipe
I had some leftovers from the japchae I made the previous night but I'm not in the mood for it now. When I have leftover stir-fried cellophane noodles, I make spring rolls, but I wasn't in the mood for deep-frying. So, I came up with this It's a lazy person's recipe, but it's delicious.
This is a recipe for stir-fried cellophane noodles that are not soupy. No matter how they are seasoned, this recipe should result in a tasty "remake." Although I haven't tried it with a soupy mapo cellophane noodle dish, or one with a thick sauce.
