炸醬麵/자장면 (Zha Jiang Mian/Jajangmyeon)

Another backdated recipe! Apparently, if you’re single, it’s tradition to make this on Valentine’s Day because this is a super messy dish, but since you’re single, you don’t have to care about what your face looks like when you’re done eating. So! We made this on Valentine’s Day for small group. :D

This is actually the Korean version, and is made with beef instead of pork because Melanie is awesome/I can’t eat pork. Don’t ask me what the difference between the Chinese version vs. the Korean version is because I have not a clue. ._.
