Korean Noodle Soup

Nearly 1 pm, got two loads of laundries done and still heaps left since the weather hasn’t been nice in the last few days, little zonni is in childcare while baby no.2 is sleeping, a good time for a lunch break. Staring at the toys all over the place and a pair of socks on the coffee table, I really have no thoughts of picking them up.

 On such a cloudy cold winter day, a bowl of warm Korean noodle soup with some kick would be lovely. Here I would love to share a quick easy recipe, which belongs to my cooking cheat sheet when there’s nothing fast and warm enough to be put into my stomach. I call fancy instant noodle Korean style.

 Simple reason of the name is because this recipe is inspired by the hot noodle soup with a spicy sauce I had at a Korean place plus the old Korean series I watched back to my single life hundreds of years ago haha.

Caution, this Korean Noodle Soup is going to be really hot!

Keep warm and enjoy the noodle soup!

SERVING SIZE: Enough for one person :)
Yields1 ServingPrep Time5 minsCook Time10 minsTotal Time15 minsCategory, , ,


 1 Pack of "2 Minute Noodles" (whichever flavour you like but I used chicken or for bigger flavour, get chili beef instant noodles from a Chinese supermarket)
 1 free range egg
 3 Pieces of frozen beef meat balls (can be bought from any Asian supermarket and be kept for months in your freezer)
 1 Chopped (frozen) Red Chili (I always buy loads when in season and roughly chop them, then save in the freezer for up to 1-2 months)
 25 g Kimchi (optional)
 1 Spring Onion (optional) ( I always get a $1 bunch and plant them in the backyard and they grow FOREVER!)



Boil 2-3 cups of water


Once its boiling, add the flavour sachet and meat balls


When the soup is boiling again, add the noodle, wait till the noodles are all soaked in the hot soup, quickly crack the egg on top of the noodle.


Turn the heat down to low, put the lid on and boil for another 2-3 minutes


Stir occasionally in case the noodles are stuck at the bottom of the pan


Stir into the chillesi and let the soup boil for another minute and put the lid back on


Open the lid, smell the yummy Korean noodle soup, sprinkle some spring onions on top and its ready to enjoy.
