This meal is a crossover of Chinese- tyle stir fry and Korean ingredients, however it is an amazing match. Kalbi is a variety of Korean bbq cuisine. Their rice cake noodle is often used in making popular Korean street snack "tteokbokki". Though I am not a Korean, I really love their tasty sauces and the chewy but very soft rice cake noodle.

Korean Kalbi Pork & Cake Noodle Stir Fry

Combining their bbq sauces and kimchi with meat and veggies can always make an easy and tasty dish that I am very happy with. If you haven't heard about garlic chive flower, it is the stalk part with unopened flower bud of a garlic chive, similar to chive. Garlic chives are widely used in Korean, Japanese and Chinese cuisine. They can be found in some Asian Groceries.
