Mise en place
Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Cut off and discard the bottom ½ inch of the yu choy stems; cut the yu choy into 1-inch sections. Separate the bok choy leaves, discarding the root end (halve the leaves crosswise if large). Cut off and discard the root end of the scallion; thinly slice, separating the white bottoms and green tops.

Cook the noodles & vegetables
Add the noodles to the boiling water. Cook, 5 to 7 minutes, until just al dente (still slightly firm to the bite). When there are 2 minutes left, add the yu choy and bok choy to the pot of noodles. Drain the noodles, bok choy and yu choy, drizzle with oil and set aside.

Cook the edamame
While the noodles cook, in a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add ½ the white bottoms of the scallions to the pan. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, until fragrant. Add the edamame and cook, stirring occasionally, 4 to 5 minutes, until browned on all sides. Add ½ the mirin and cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, until the edamame are coated; season with ½ the spice blend and S&P to taste. Transfer the finished edamame to a bowl. Wipe out and reserve the pan.

Make the sauce & finish the noodles
In the same pan, melt 2 tbsp butter (double for 4 portions). Add the remaining white bottoms of the scallions and cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, until fragrant. Add as much of the gochujang as you’d like (add ½ for medium spicy), kimchi and remaining mirin. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, until slightly softened and caramelized. Add the cooked noodles, demi-glace and ¼ cup water (double for 4 portions). Cook, 1 to 2 minutes, until the volume has slightly reduced; season with the remaining spice blend.

Plate your dish
Divide the finished kimchi noodles between your plates. Top the finished noodles with as many of the green tops of the scallions as you’d like. Serve the seared edamame on the side (remove the beans from the shell before eating). Bon appétit!
