#663: Paldo Jjajangmen (Blackbean Flavor)

Here’s one I’ve been meaning to get to and here we go! Thisd one is from Greg B. of Marathon, FL! Thanks Greg – let’s give this one a try!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Notice the noodles are prepared a little differently. Also notice the ingredients in that sauce [acket!

Here’s the big noodle block – very wide noodles too.

This is a pretty good sized sauce packet!

Here’s the back of it.

Finished (click image to enlarge). So what I did was I let the packet heat in the pot with the noodles. After they’d cooked, I drained the noodles and put everything in the pot, stirred a ton and put it all in the bowl. This is very different – I honestly did not expect to like this – but I most certainly do. The noodles are very thick and chewy and they get nicely coated in the black bean sauce. The sauce is very flavorful – I’ve had Jjangmen varieties before and the sauce was much ticker and more paste-like. This is truly a nice sauce – complete with veggies (those are what are on top). I was very pleasantly surprised. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars – delicious and satisfying. UPC barcode 648436100590 .

Here’s how to make some homemade Jjajangmen.

    These came in a 5 pack. I tried one and it seemed good quality, but it had like a wine/sherry taste to it that I do not like.

    I gave the other 3 to my Mom and it is now one of her favorites.
