HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Today's recipe comes to us from the Star Advertiser's Electric Kitchen column. It's time to celebrate all things Korean with the festival this weekend. Chef Ronnie from Tiki's Grill and Bar will show us how to make Jajamyeon, a black bean sauce on noodles.

In Korea, the dish is often delivered by bicycle to your home and served with daikon pickles on the side. It's a favorite for kids and adults. The recipe is below.

Jajamyeon (black bean sauce noodles) 
2 tbsp oil 
4 oz ground pork 
1 c small-dice onion 
1 c small-dice potato 
1/2 c small-dice zucchini 
1/2 c julienne cabbage 
4 cloves garlic, smashed or chopped 
3/4 c chungjang sauce (Chinese black bean sauce) 

1 tbsp sugar 
2 c water 
1 tbsp cornstarch & water, mixed to make a slurry 
1 lb cooked fresh saimin or ramen noodles 
1/2 c julienne cucumber 
1/2 cup julienne green onions
On high, heat large pan and add oil. When oil lightly smokes, add pork and saute 1 minute. Add onion, potato, zucchini and cabbage; saute another minute, then add garlic, chungjang, sugar and water. 
Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes. Thicken with slurry to desired thickness. 
Separate cooked noodles into 2 bowls; divide sauce equally over noodles and garnish each bowl with the cucumber and green onion. Serves 2.
