    imagine this:

    you're hungry in the middle of the night. Going to your pitch dark kitchen. Open the fridge and you get some stuff. When you turn back, Martina is staring at you like in 2:15.

    What will u do?

    I used to tutor a sweet Korean kid, and I saw she had these japaghetti stuff. I asked if I can bring home some and cook it without knowing what it was. I was expecting some spicy, burnt spaghetti. Was disappointed. Now I kinda want to make and try the authentic one instead.

    You shouldn't rinse noodles if your putting them in a sauce, the sauce won't stick as well as it would if you hadn't rinsed them.

    • Ma5jay5dontxdoxthat
      Ma5jay5dontxdoxthat 1 year ago

      +Curshna You're suppose to rinse the noodles to give them the proper texture and have it not be slimy. It's wasn't sticking because she didn't drain it fully.

    • hmj414
      hmj414 1 year ago

      +lexi utti hmmm maybe start with 1/2 tablespoon? then taste it and see. The bean paste is already salty, so it might depend how much saltiness you want. Add a teaspoon of sesame oil in the sauce at the end will add a lot of flavor too :)


    • lexi utti
      lexi utti 1 year ago

      I could do soy sauce! do you think the measurements would be the same?


    • hmj414

      Ma5jay5dontxdoxthat 1 year ago

      +Grey Viller It should taste a bit salty, but if it's too salty for you, maybe try adding less of it in the sauce, because salt contain varies from product to product.

      +Ma5jay5dontxdoxthat I guess I didn't mean to come off like that as if I'm bragging to people that I'm vegetarian, I'm actually Hindu. I just can't eat beef or pork, thats why I asked. So, is it wrong like that to ask a simple question, whether it bothers people or not? Anyway, I'm sorry if I sounded a bit obnoxious, but I hope you guys understand. Thank you for understanding!


    • Ma5jay5dontxdoxthat
      Ma5jay5dontxdoxthat 1 year ago

      +Cassie Howells They don't mean those kinds of substitute, e.i fake fish or beef, they mean things that replaces the meat like your tofu example, but they are also right, most vegetarians should know at least the basic things like that. The only time I've ever seen a vegetarian ask if they can replace something or find a substitute is if they ingredient seems important to the recipe, which, again, Kenny has a good right to be suspicious of the op, because they asked something with a way too obvious answer "Yes, you can sub it with tofu, mushrooms, etc.", but ask an obvious question that most vegetarians/vegans would ask "Can you leave out the oyster sauce? If not, what's a vegetarian friendly substitute?" because the word oyster is in it's name for a reason. Or even "Is the black bean paste vegetarian?" because the paste is usually cooked in chicken or beef broth.


    • Cassie Howells

      Maybe try cornstarch instead?i know 100% that that thickens very well when added to recipes. I haven't used potato starch before so I'm not sure why it's messing up for you. I hope you can get it to work! Merry Christmas!

  • Madeline Siu
    Madeline Siu 1 year ago

    okay. here's what I have to say about this recipe.
    it was super yummy. I ate all of it. however, it was very salty and rich. I would add only 6 tbsp of paste, or just not add the oyster sauce. it's really good when the sauce is soupy, it makes it more of a slurpy noodle.

    ps totally didn't add the garnish. didn't care about how it looked cuz it tasted amazinggg. keep making more cooking videos!!

    My mom cooks jajangmyun differently, we get pieces of beef cut in cubes iono whats the cut rump stew meat ikr but its cube pieces of beef lol sautee with onions and then cut up some potateos in cubes add water cook till it is soft. Add some sugar some black bean paste seasame oil, oyster or fish sauce(optional) and cornstarch or potato starch if u need but shouldnt need alot since potatoes were used and the oyster/fish is like optional if you like fishy taste lol ours is usually very savory and heavyish on the bean taste :)
