Michael’s New York’s Kyung Up Lim in Saveur Magazine

October 22, 2012

Saveur agazine recently ran a piece on classic recipes. And—wouldn’t you know it!—they asked executive chef Kyung Up Lim of Michael’s New York for his perfect recipe for Korean comfort food chap chae. In his own words, he recounted in the article the special importance he feels for this this dish:

“When I was growing up in Korea, my grandmother would make chap chae for family reunions. Whenever she started stir-frying the shredded beef and vegetables together in a big wok, I would wander into her kitchen, wondering when the party was going to begin. The finished dish is festive and delicious. I love the combination of slippery sweet potato noodles turned golden from the cooking juices and soy sauce, crunchy vegetables, and tender, juicy beef. For my own family, chap chae is still a sign of celebration: Whenever I make it, my son walks in, asking when the party is starting.” —Kyung Up Lim, executive chef of Michael’s in New York City.

Don’t you suddenly have this insane craving for noodles?

    Dang it! I do not have enough time to cook all these wonderful dishes. I guess I will have to go back to Korea and have someone cook them for me.
