From the Test Kitchen

In this dish, we’re highlighting fresh, chewy udon noodles by tossing them with a spicy sauce of black bean sauce, soy glaze, gochujang, and more that perfectly complements the richness of the pork. It’s all stirred together with tender, sautéed bites of bell pepper and carrots for satisfying crunch.

Remove the noodles from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the carrots; halve lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Cut off and discard the stem of the pepper. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then thinly slice crosswise. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. In a bowl, whisk together the black bean sauce, soy glaze, sesame oil, vinegar, 1/2 cup of water, and as much of the gochujang as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be.
