BaBa’s Jia Jiang Mian

BaBa means father in Chinese. Yes, my dad taught me how to make this dish the right way, not the book way. He dislikes cookbooks, always saying to me “Books they just give you ideas, the rest is up to you to cook.”

Jia Jiang mian translates into “Fried Sauce Noodles” It is a rich dish with bean paste, hoisin, and chili garlic sauce. I like to serve it with thick noodles to complement the ground pork butt mixture.

If you want to get creative, you can use the pork mixture as filling for a taco.

    Jeez! I am living in a small city in Spain and I miss this kind of food! Only so much jamon, arroz and croquetas a girl can handle. Thanks for inspiring me. I am gonna try to make this this week.
