Update! I went looking for the ingredients I mentioned in this post. I went to a different store than originally planned. It is twice the size and has a lot more items in the store. I got what I needed (almost) and extra 🙂
Here’s the whole haul.
I got some frozen rice cakes. I am hoping they will be similar to the noodles in chow fun dishes that I have had. I love those noodles.
Udon and buckwheat noodles
Some sauces – to put on the noodles 😀
And here is what I got for the recipe. The Vinegar is different than described, but it said Red Vinegar and I was at an Asian store. I went with it. I had to get some bean paste, too. I actually didn’t get the right one, but it should be a suitable replacement according to the cookbook. Sad thing? I think I actually had the correct stuff in my hand and put it back. I recognized the name on this jar and grabbed it instead. I have no idea where I saw the name, but I am glad I can still use it. I don’t think I can take things back to the store.
I can’t wait to make the orange flavored beef now. It will have to wait until I return from going home. I’ll be there for a week. I may not have much to post, but I will try. If not, then you can look forward to the beef recipe 😛
