If you’ve never tried chinese spaghetti, you’re in for a treat. Koreans have their own version using black soybean paste. The taste is pretty different, but they’re both good.

Sauce for 1 serving:

  • 1 tablespoon of hot bean paste
  • 1 tablespoon of sweet bean paste (can substitute with hoisin)
  • 1/2 tablespoon of soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup of chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  1. Take 1/4 lb ground pork and marinate it for 20 minutes in 1 T rice wine, 1 T soy sauce, pinch of sugar and salt, 1 teaspoon cornstarch.
  2. Cook up the pork in oil until it is fully cooked. I also like to add diced shiitake mushrooms and diced carrots.
  3. Pour in the sauce mixture and let it simmer for 5-7 minutes or until the vegetables are soft. Throw in green scallions towards the end.
  4. Pour the sauce over your prepared chinese wheat noodles or the noodles of your preference.
  5. Add in garnishes such as cucumbers, greens, cilantro.
