#1160: Samyang Foods Chacharoni

Gotta love the name. This is a South Korean combination of Jjajang (a black bean dish) and noodles. They usually end up nice and hearty with just a sauce and no broth. Let’s check it out!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge).

The noodle block.

The sauce packet.

Has a rich black bean scent.

The solid ingredient packet.

Some bits of veg and textured vegetable protein.

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added sauteed Walla Walla sweet onion, peas, corn and beef. The noodles are very wide and chewy.- very hearty. The chajang sauce coats everything nicely and is almost meaty although it’s not full of meat. With summer pretty much over, this is a good one for the colder months. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 8801073101524.
