① Put beef brisket 600g into a pot and pour 16~17
cups of water, and boil them fully at mid-heat, to produce
some 13 cups of meat soup. Cool the soup and clear
away all the fats from it, which will be seasoned with ㉠
and cooled off.
② While meat soup is boiling, pick up half of the
fully cooked meat, wrap them in a cloth, press hard and
cut them into thin slices of 2x4x0.2cm. Now they are
ready as garnish of cold noodle.
③ Shred or cut cucumber into proper-sized pieces,
pickle them in salt for a short time, and drain them.
Then, stir-fry the cucumber pieces on a pan on which sesame
oil has been spread beforehand.
④ Boil eggs and shred them thinly in the way to keep
their round form.
⑤ Soak pyogo mushroom in water, and shred them and
stir-fry on a pan with sesame oil, and then season them
with condiments of ㉡.
⑥ Cut pear into large pieces, and tear off stems from
pine nuts which shall be washed.
⑦ Wash noodles after they are fully boiled, and then
put them on a large bowl as a sari (coil). Lay meat
slices, cucumber, pyogo mushroom, eggs, pine nuts and pear
above the noodles in an orderly shape. Sprinkle shredded
red peppers on them and then pour cooled meat soup sufficiently.
Then, the bowl is ready to be served on table. Mustard,
vinegar, sugar and salt are also served along with the bowl.
☞ Noodles shall be heaped up in the bowl, to
be served like coils.
☞ Cucumber can be seasoned either after cooking
or as raw.
☞ Cucumber and pear may be cut into large pieces
instead of being shredded.
☞ Hot radish kimchi may be used for cold noodles.
Boiled pork slices can be used instead of beef as garnish
☞ In hot summer noodles may be prepared in juice
of watery radish kimchi.
☞ Cold noodles served in winter season normally
use clear juice of watery kimchi, radish kimchi or just
kimchi instead of meat broth. Of them, watery
kimchi juice is particularly good as it is clear and
refreshing. However, it would be better to mix
the juice with meat broth in equal proportion.
☞ Best taste can be obtained by kneading buckwheat
flour, pressing and squeezing them through a machine
into noodles, and then boiling them right away. It is
not easy to procure this kind of noodles in the market,
so ready made noodles (for cold noodles) are normally
purchased and used.
