The BEST Way To Reheat Japchae

Japchae, also known as chapchae (잡채), is a super delicious and addictive Korean glass noodle dish. I’m sure you know this already, otherwise you wouldn’t be here.
If you’ve recently made more Japchae than you can handle, you may be wondering what the best method of keeping and reheating it later is.
I have personally experimented with several different reheating methods to ensure that the glass noodles retain their chewy and elastic texture without sticking together or turning to mush.
