Ingredients

Instant Jjapaghetti Noodles (3 Packages)

  • 3 Jjapaghetti Powder Packets
  • 2 Ramen Noodles (we only need 2 noodles - not all 3)

Fresh Ingredients

  • 2 stalks of Spring Onion (forearm length size)
  • ½ a whole Onion
  • 3 Tablespoons of Olive Oil
  • 2-3 Soup ladles of Starch Water (when boiling noodles)

Meat & Seasoning

  • 250 grams of Pork Loin (~½ lb)
  • ½ Tablespoon of Mirim
  • Few pinches Salt
  • Few pinches Black Pepper

Instructions

Prep Ingredients

  • Cut 2 Spring Onion stalks into small pieces. Finely dice ½ a whole Onion into small bite-sized pieces.
  • Chop a piece of Pork Loin (250 grams) into bite-sized pieces. Season the pieces with ½ a Tablespoon of Mirim. Then season with a few pinches of Salt and Black pepper. Give it a mix with your hand.
  • Open 3 Jjapaghetti Instant Noodles. Open up 3 Jjapaghetti Powder Packets. Then set aside 2 of the Ramen Noodles (we don't need all 3).
  • Measure out 3 Tablespoons of Olive Oil - set aside!

Stir-fry Fresh Ingredients

  • Place a wok or large frying pan on MEDIUM heat. Put Olive Oil (3 Tablespoons) into the frying pan. Once its hot, place in the Spring Onion pieces.
  • Once the spring onion pieces start to sizzle, place in the diced onions. Stir-fry around until the onion pieces turns translucent. Then add in the seasoned pork pieces.
  • Stir-fry the pork pieces until most of the red is gone in the meat. Then turn off the heat - we'll quickly move to boiling our noodles

Boil Noodles

  • Fill a pot with water and bring it up to boil. Once the water is boiling, add in the 2 ramen noodles. Place the noodles in and set timer for 5 minutes.
  • After 4 minutes (before we finish boiling), scoop out 2-3 ladles of starch water. Set aside for later.
  • Once its 5 minutes, the noodles are done. Drain the water and rinse the noodles under cold water. Set aside in a strainer and let it drip off excess water.

Finish Jjajangmyeon

  • Place the stir-fry back on medium heat. Add in 3 Jjajangmyeon Powder Packets. Stir-fry it around. Once the powder is well mixed into the ingredients, add in 1 scoop of the starch water. Mix it around and let it simmer for 1 minute. (Note: If you want your Jajangmyeon to be more sauce, add-in another scoop of starch water.)

Plate Ramen

  • Grab a handful of the cooked ramen. Place onto a plate. Then scoop on a few soup ladles worth of the Jjajangmyeon Sauce. Garnish with a few pinches of sliced green onion.
  • Before eating, thoroughly mix the noodles with the black bean sauce. Bon Appetit!
