Master of Revenge; Master – God of Noodles Recipe #3: 궁중 꿩 메밀국수 (Royal Pheasant Buckwheat Noodles)

Again, for the original Korean instructions and pictures, head to this website: http://office.kbs.co.kr/mylovekbs/archives/244443


  • Pheasant (1)
  • Radish (1/2)
  • Green Onions/ Big Scallion (1 stalk)
  • Ginger
  • Distilled Clear Rice Wine (1 cup)
  • Green/ Young Pumpkin (1/2)
  • Korean Soy Sauce
  • Buckwheat Flour (300g)
  • Flour (300g)
  • Starch (200g)
  • Eggs (2)
  • Carrot (1/2)
  • Cooking Oil
  • Salt


Making the Broth:

*Since it’s difficult to find/ buy pheasant, substituting it with chicken is also O.K.

  1. To 5 cups of water, add the pheasant, 3 slices of ginger, the green onions cut into 3, and boil.
  2. Once the water starts to boil, add 2 spoons of clear wine and 2 spoons of Korean soy sauce.


Making the Dough:

*Because buckwheat is low in stickiness, when boiled alone, it will break easily. Therefore, mix it with flour and starch to make the noodles.

  1. Mix Buckwheat: Wheat Flour: Starch in 3:4:2 ratio and mix well.
  2.  Add a pinch of salt.
  3. Add hot water and knead.
  4. Let it rest in a warm place for 30 minutes.
  5. Roll it out and cut the noodles with 5 mm width.


Making the Garnish:

  1. Julienne the carrot, young pumpkin and radish.
  2. Add a little oil to a frying pan.
  3. 3. Fry each one separately, adding a little salt each time.
  4. After separating the egg yolks and egg whites, mix each equally.
  5. Add a little salt and pepper to the egg yolks and egg whites, managing them separately.
  6. Add very little oil to the frying pan and cook both separately (in a thin layer).
  7. Remove to a plate and julienne prettily.


Cooking the Noodles:

  1. Add a pinch of salt to boiling water.
  2. Add the cut buckwheat noodles.
  3. When the noodles are cooking, the water may froth, therefore, be careful.
  4. To prevent that, add cool water from time to time. It also makes the noodles chewy. (Personal experience tells me that a shot glass of cool water added at 2 different moments does the trick.)
  5. Around the 5 minute mark, remove the noodles. Wash them in ice cold water.


To Finish:

  1. Put the cold noodles into a bowl.
  2. If you add the broth and the garnishes, delicious Royal Pheasant Buckwheat Noodles are done.
