This stuff is really good.
I don't know what it's called in english.
You can find it at your well-stocked Korean grocery store like H-Mart.
I like crab and it's crab flavor.
It's spicy as hell.
But the instructions are all wrong.
I didn't measure the amount of water I used, but it's probably less than the 19oz.
I have always gone by the judgement of my big fat gut.
And I tend to like it on the saltier and spicier side too, so I put in a little less water.
Most importantly, DO NOT COOK FOR 4.5 MINUTES.
On a whim, I decided to time it, and my cook time was probably right around the 2:15 mark, and it was every so very slightly too soft.
For me, the noodles would be way too mushy and soft to eat at 4.5min.
@arrinseattle and I like the consistency to be just right.
Not too mushy.
Not too hard.
There is that perfect zone of al dente-ness.
And given a choice, I prefer on the slightly on the undercooked side.
And for some reason it's more fun to split one package, than to eat an entire one solo.
