Jajang Bap {Korean/Chinese Black Rice}

Things have been crazy around here! My five year old son started kindergarten a week ago and it’s been so hectic. I got to spend about an hour in his classroom on the first day of school and I got a little teary when he said goodbye in the end. I can’t believe how fast my boys are growing!

Today, I’d like to write about one of my favorite things to eat. I love Korean style Chinese food. I know it’s way different from Chinese food here in America. So one of the food that I miss the most about Korean is the Korean/Chinese food! 🙂

To make this, you will need either Jajang sauce or Jajang powder. Jajang is black curry powder that you can find at Asian markets or Korean stores. I used toasted black bean curry paste and you only need about 2-3 tablespoons.

You can use zucchini, peas, onions, mushrooms, or other veggies you like. I usually use steak meat for Jajang Bap. Just cut any steak meat small and stir together.
