Make Jajangmyeon, Korean Noodles In A Black Bean Sauce | Quarantine Cooking

Deuki Hong, founder and chef of Sunday Hospitality Group, is in his backyard cooking Jajangmyeon. This black bean noodle dish is a Koreanified take on a Shandong dish brought over by the Chinese in the early 1900s. Deuki starts by frying chunjang, a Korean black bean paste, to create a sticky and glossy sauce. He then stir fries pork shoulder, pork belly, and a variety of vegetables like onion, zucchini and cabbage before bringing the dish together with thick flour noodles.

And fun fact. Well, slightly grim fun fact. Jajangmyeon is typically eaten on what Koreans call Black Day, which is observed every April 14. The idea is that those who didn’t receive a gift the previous two 14ths of the months — Valentine’s Day (February 14) and White Day (March 14, when girls return the favor to the boys) — they should treat themselves to a bowl of black noodles and commiserate on their life of perpetual singledom.
