Finishing the kimchi noodles -- 20 minutes

COOK the pork belly or bacon in the large skillet for a few minutes, no need to add oil or butter. ADD the onion and after about a minute pour in the soy sauce mixture and the kimchi, without liquid.

After about 2 minutes, also pour in the beef stock and bring to a boil. Let it boil for a few minutes and then add in the snow peas and noodles. 

Stir occasionally to prevent the noodles from sticking together. Cooking time will depend on the type of noodles you're using.

Probably it will only take about 5 minutes until it has reduced enough and the noodles are done. SERVE with greens onions and enjoy!
