Start by bringing a pot of water to boil and cook noodles according to package instructions. Rinse it under cold water, strain and set aside.
In a small bowl, whisk together gochujang paste, soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil and maple syrup.
Heat up about a tablespoon of neutral oil in a cast iron skillet / non-stick pan on medium heat. Add in garlic and saute until fragrant, for 2-3 minutes.
Next, add in cabbage and red bell pepper. Cook for 4-5 minutes until softened, stirring frequently.
Toss in noodles along with gochujang sauce. Mix until the sauce is thoroughly incorporated. Give it a taste and add more soy sauce, if needed.
Any kinds of dried noodles from wheat noodles, udon noodles to pasta can be used.
To make this oil-free, use ¼ cup of water or vegetable broth to saute instead of oil. Also omit sesame oil and top it with some sesame seeds instead.
