Ja Jjang Myun (Chinese Black Bean Noodles)

This is an Asian version of the Bolognese. Essentially the same ingredients, you just need Ja Jjang powder. They are available from Asian grocery stores.

It looks like this.

Mince (beef or pork)
Ja Jjang powder
1 onion
whatever veg you've got (carrot, zucchini, cabbage)

1. Fry the onion & mince.
2. Add & fry the veg (grated).
3. Add a little bit of water (1 to 1.5 cups).
4. Add the powder. Simmer until it becomes a nice & thick sauce.
5. Serve with Chinese white noodles.


  1. so... what is the flavour like? I'll need to look at that when we go to eastwood!

  2. it's black bean so kinda beany and salty?
    How about I make some for lunch on the Tuesday and if you like it, you can
    buy some!! :)
