As Gene Wilder's Willy Wonka might say, "Strike that; reverse it." It's jajangmyun time!
|Forgive the poor photography. I was too excited to cram this|
into my gullet to take a good picture. Ardenter, you say?*
Jajangmyun, taken with a grain of salt because this recipe is coming from a white chick
(You should probably use cabbage and potato and cooked pork or tofu)
3 tbsp black bean paste
2 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp sugar (or less)
1 tbsp rice wine
1 cup water
a slurry of 1 tbsp cornstarch and 1 tbsp water
Stir-fry the vegetables with the exception of the zucchini and cabbage in the sesame oil. Add the black bean paste, sugar, rice wine, and water, and stir to combine. Mix in the zucchini and cabbage and bring to a boil. When it's boiling, add the cornstarch slurry, return to a boil, and simmer until the sauce is thickened and slightly reduced. Stir in the cooked meat/tofu and heat through. Serve over sweet potato cellophane noodles.
*This is a reference to Thomas Aquinas, who listed six or seven ways to commit gluttony. Ardenter is, simply put, eating too quickly.
