Korean black bean paste (Chunjang, 춘장) is made from a salty fermented soybean and coloured with caramel. It is an essential condiment to make“Korean black bean sauce noodles(Jajangmyeon)”
It has a slightly bitter and salty taste on its own, so some sugar is added when making Korean black bean sauce (Jajang, 자장: stir-fried Korean black bean paste with meat & vegetables).
While Korean black bean paste may have been introduced by a Chinese merchant into Korea, it is different to Chinese black bean paste as it evolved to meet Korean’s taste buds.
