Korean Jajangmyeon Recipe
4 tablespoons Korean jajang (you can also use Chinese black bean paste)
2-3 tablespoons cooking oil
10 ounces lean pork, cubed
2 medium onions, peeled and cubed
1 large potato, peeled and cubed
4 tablespoons water mixed with 3 tablespoons cornstarch (or potato starch)
2 teaspoons sugar
8 ounces Korean noodles (or Chinese wheat noodles)
2 hard-boiled eggs, halved
1 medium cucumber, peeled and cut into thin strips
How to cook jajangmyun:
1. Heat cooking oil in a wok over high heat; add black bean paste. Stir fry for about
2-3 minutes, or until the bean paste starts to harden.
2. Lower the heat; add pork, onion and potato. Stir fry for about 3-4 minutes, until
the pork is just cooked and the vegetables are tender.
3. Dissolve sugar in cornstarch mixture. Pour into wok, making sure to combine well
with the meat.
4. Allow to simmer for 1-2 minutes, over gentle heat. Once you see the black bean
sauce thickens, remove everything from the wok and set aside.
5. Place about 4 cups of water in a saucepan, and bring to a rapid boil. To cook
the noodles, add and blanch noodles according to package instructions. This should
take about 5 minutes, or until the noodles are soft.
6. Remove from heat, drain and quickly rinse under cold water to stop the cooking
7. Divide the noodles equally between 4 serving bowls, and then spoon black bean
sauce over the top of noodles.
8. Garnish with cucumber strips and an egg halve. Serve Korean jajangmyun noodles
