“What the hell is ‘ram-don’?” the housekeeper asks – one of the most memorable scenes from the Oscar Winning movie Parasite. It’s a dish made with Chapagetti + Neoguri noodles served with delicious sirloin steak cubes – “ram-don” is a dish Bong Joon-ho invented for the film, jjapaguri noodles “classed up” with Korean hanwoo sirloin, because a “rich mother could never serve it plain.” A dish so simple and easy to make, you truly can have a delicious meal in 8 minutes.  This recipe is inspired by Maangchi’s Jjapaguri with steak video.

Ingredients

  • 1 Package of Chapagetti (Instant Noodles made by Nongshim)
  • 1 Package of Neoguri (Instant Noodles made by Nongshim)
  • 12 oz Sirloin or Ribeye Steak
  • ½ Teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • ¼ Teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
  • Teaspoon Vegetable Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Salted Butter

Method

  • 1)

    Use a blade tenderizer and push the needles through the whole steak once. Cut into ¾ inch cubes, then season with ½ Teaspoon Kosher Salt and ¼ Teaspoon Ground Black Pepper. Place 1 Teaspoon of Oil into a cast iron pan or a heavy fry pan and heat on High. When it’s smoking hot, add the steak and let it sear for 1 minute. Add 1 Tablespoon of Salted Butter and continue to brown all sides of the steak for another 2 minutes or until the doneness is to your liking. Remove the steak cubes from the pan and place onto a plate or bowl.

  • 2)

    (Start this step while you’re cooking the steak) Fill a pot with 5 Cups of Water. Heat on high until it boils, add the two packets of Vegetable Mix and noodles from both packages. Boil for 3 minutes, stir the noodles so they cook evenly. Reserve ¾ Cup of the cooking water. Drain the noodles in a colander. Pour ¾ Cup of the reserved water back into the pan, turn the heat to medium. Add the Oil packet and the 2 Soup Base Packets, stir well. Once it comes to a boil, add the noodles and stir for 1 Minute so the sauce starts to thicken. Turn off the heat, add the steak and toss to combine, serve immediately. Enjoy!
