Yum, yum, yum, yum. yum! I'm craving these noodles so hard right now! I love Italian food, especially Spaghetti Bolognaise and this reminds me of that dish except instead of a tomato based sauce, this is a salty black and yellow bean sauce… interesting, you say?
This dish has so many different flavors and textures that it makes my mouth want to sing! While for some, the flavors of the sauce my be different than you are familiar with but something about it makes me want to go back for more and more!
Some of you may not have ever heard of Fried Sauce Noodles or Zha Jiang Mian as it's called in Chinese and Korean (Jja Jian Myun) but it doesn't mean you shouldn't try it! I grew up eating the Chinese version of this salty meat and vegetable sauce over #noodles (in my house, my dad just used spaghetti) and later on in college tried the Korean version and fell in love once again with this crave worthy bowl of deliciousness.
While you may not think anything with the word "Fried" in the title should be considered healthy, the "fry" refers to frying the already flavorful beansauce and kicking up that intensity a few more notches!
While this dish is not technically difficult to make, there is a bit of chopping and you may to search a little for the ingredients but it is SO worth it! I really hope you enjoy my recipe!
