Rach is making an udon dish that she describes as big, fat chewy noodles in a fantastic black bean sauce with pork and lots of vegetables, including a garnish of thinly sliced onion and pickled cucumbers. "Come on!" she exclaims. "But, is the dish about the noodles? It's about all the other stuff!" So, if you don't have udon, no problem. You can use any other chewy noodle, including bucatini or buckwheat noodles.

For the toppings, prepare and set aside.
For the sauce, whisk ingredients to combine. Set aside until ready to use.
Bring a pot of water to boil for noodles.
In a large cast-iron skillet or nonstick skillet, heat oil.
Add pork and potato, season with salt and white pepper and cook to light golden. Remove pork mixture from pan, leaving drippings. Add onions, zucchini and garlic and soften 3 to 4 minutes. Add carrots and sauce, bring to simmer and cook 10 minutes. Add cornstarch slurry and simmer on low until sauce is glossy and thickened.
Cook noodles and add to pan, then return pork and potatoes to pan and toss to combine over medium heat. Serve with toppings.
