This bowl of yummy hot noodles is a deliciously quick lunch. It tastes so good, you’ll forget you are eating ramyun!
We really enjoy jjajang myun, black bean noodles. It is one of the things I haven’t ever made from scratch or even really tried. If we go out for Korean food, this is what we usually order. (See restaurant review here and here!)
But we really like it and going out is expensive with lots of hungry kids, so we resort to making the instant kind at home (more often than we would admit). As we have discovered, all black bean style ramyun noodles are not created equal! This one, however, is a winner!
The secret to its deliciousness is the pouch of jjajang sauce (not powder!) that is included.
It cooks up quick and easy and makes a great weekend lunch.
Warning: You may need to remove your shirt when you eat it. It gets messy!
This is not a recipe so much, since it is just following the instructions on the package; it is more of a product review with cooking directions 🙂
