For a great jajang myun recipe..

Jajang myun is a very popular black bean noodle dish from Korea. It was originally a Chinese dish that Koreans adapted and, I believe, greatly improved on. In terms of taste, it’s like lo mein with black bean sauce.

I just made some jajang myun from the site www.beyondkimchee.com and I was very happy with the results.

You can check it out here: Jajang Myun Recipe. I used cubed pork bellies for the meat and substituted potato starch in place of the cornstarch, to avoid that chalky taste that cornstarch sometimes adds. Also, when I added the potato starch at the end of the cooking process, I turned off the heat and let the residual heat of the dish incorporate the potato starch, since I had read that you should not boil potato starch..

Enjoy !
