Black Bean Noodles
Momofuku recently did a pop up at a local brewery (Blood Bros) and one of the dishes they did was a cold black bean noodle dish with candied cashews that blew my mind. Recently I was craving it, but the pop up ended so I was forced to make my own. Being both injured and lazy I was forced to use some easier to find ingredients at my local big box grocer. Still came out great and didn’t have to go all the way to China Town for specialty ingredients!
The nuts recipe makes a lot, and frankly you’ll want them around as a snack once you’ve tasted them, so the rest of the dish comes together easily when you have those on hand.
And I guess the slaw is a pain with the match sticking and all if you don’t have a mandolin…

The Sauce & Noodles
- 1 lb ground pork
- 1 bunch green onion chopped into 2" pieces, whites and greens separated
- 1/2 cup black bean paste
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 tbsp corn starch
- salt and pepper
- 400 g dry thin noodles I used easy to find dry chow mein, but any thin noodle you'd prefer would work here.
- 2 cups roasted cashews see recipe above
- 1 large cucumber cut into 3" match sticks
- 1 medium daikon radish
- chop the veg, toss loosely to combine, or serve separately- your choice
The Sauce & Noodles
- in a heated wok add the pork and break apart well, stir fry with salt and pepper until beginning to brown, 3-4 minutes. If juices are forming at the bottom, spread the pork around the sides so it can evaporate off. You want the pork to get some crunchy maillard going on, steam is the enemy of that!
- When the pork is nicely browning, add the green onion whites and the sauce, stir to combine with the pork
- Combine the corn starch and water in a separate bowl, then stir into the sauce and stir fry for about a minute, just to get the sauce bubbling
- Add the green onion greens, remove from heat and set aside to cool
- cook noodles to package directions, then rinse in cold water
- Add 1/4 of the noodles to a mixing bowl with 1/2 cup of sauce and 1/2 cup cashews, toss to fully combine then transfer to a serving bowl, optionally add sesame seeds
- serve with cucumber daikon slaw and more cashews
