Jjajangmyeon

Hay naku! K-drama has done it again! Kakanood-kakanood.. ayan nag-crave sa Jjajangmyeon! This is actually the third time that I made it but the second time that I posted here on the blog. The first time I made it, I wasn’t able to fry the black bean paste in oil and I didn’t add sugar. It still turned out good, though. But according to my research, frying the black bean paste removes its bitterness so the sauce tastes much better. So that’s what I did this time — and it did taste much better.

Jjajangmyeon is Korean Black Bean Sauce Noodles. It’s made with black bean paste called chunjang (춘장) and a whole lot of other ingredients like ground pork, onions, zucchini, carrots, soy sauce, and mirin. They say that eating this is an acquired taste but I loved it the first time I tried it .. kaya nga umabot na sa third time hihihi.

So that’s how I made it. Easy lang diba? For the noodles, I love the brand Wang Korea which is dried noodles but next time, I hope I can drop by the Korean grocery so I can buy fresh noodles.

NOTES:

You must cook the Korean Dried Noodles for 5-6 minutes only or the noodles will get really soggy. This second time, I got a different brand of noodles and the instruction on the packaging says to cook it for 7-8 minutes which I followed. The noodles were too soft and the leftover noodles got stuck with each other and turned into one big blob.
