instructions
Cook the eggs:
1 Cook the eggs:

Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, carefully add the eggs to the pot and cook 7 minutes for soft-boiled, or until your desired degree of doneness. Leaving the pot of water boiling, using a slotted spoon or tongs, carefully transfer the eggs to a strainer. Rinse under cold water 30 seconds to 1 minute to stop the cooking process. When cool enough to handle, carefully peel the cooked eggs. Season with salt and pepper. 

Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce:
2 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce:

Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut out and discard the core of the cabbage; thinly slice the leaves. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers; remove the cores, then thinly slice lengthwise. Combine in a bowl. Roughly chop the noodles. In a bowl, combine the sesame oil, black bean sauce, and vinegar.

Cook the vegetables:
3 Cook the vegetables:

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat the sautéed aromatics on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced cabbage and peppers; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 5 minutes, or until softened. Add the sauce. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until combined. Transfer to a bowl. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Cover with foil to keep warm. Rinse and wipe out the pan.

Cook the noodles:
4 Cook the noodles:

Meanwhile, add the noodles to the same pot of boiling water. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until tender. Drain and rinse under warm water 30 seconds to 1 minute to prevent sticking. Set aside to drain at least 2 minutes to remove any excess water.

Finish the noodles & serve your dish:
5 Finish the noodles & serve your dish:

In the same pan, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the drained noodles (carefully, as the oil may splatter) and spread into an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 4 to 5 minutes, or until crispy. Turn off the heat. Add the soy sauce; stir and scrape up any browned noodles until thoroughly coated (some noodles may stick to the pan). Serve the finished noodles topped with the cooked vegetables and seasoned eggs. Enjoy!
