Here is the list of Noodles Recipes .Let me clarify something before I begin. I don’t claim to know how to cook all the dishes has to offer. This is a great country! But when I decide to learn how to cook a meal (which is something I generally like personally), I become great at research. Before the end result is approved by our critics (i.e. Bill, Sarah, and Kaitlin), I study the origin of the food, compare the recipes, look at Chinese food websites, and test the recipes multiple times.
One of the most common dishes among Chinese noodle recipes, there are many varieties out there. I knew Dan Dan Noodles would be a complicated recipe. We had three attempts last weekend. It’s a challenging process that looks like this:
Bill: You need a little sugar to balance the salinity.
These claims ten times, along with many other unsolicited opinions and advice. This is our family! I will not sweeten this recipe. Making Dan Dan noodles is not that easy. The dish requires many different ingredients to achieve a complex layered flavor. But you might think that this dish has four parts: chili oil, meat mixture, and sui mi ya cai (pickled vegetables you can find in your Chinese supermarket.won half the battle. If there is no courage, there is no victory.
Before we start making this epic Dan Dan noodle recipe, we also have to mention our other traditional noodle recipes that we love while in China, including 15 Minute Hot Fat Chinese Noodles (You Po Mian) and Gravy Noodles. Peking fried – Zha Jiang Mian.
DAN DAN NOODLES And THE CHILI OIL :
- 2 tablespoons.
- 2 star anise.
- 1 cup oil.
- 1/4 cup crushed.
- 1 inch Chinese cinnamon.
In a small saucepan, add the Sichuan pepper, cinnamon stick, star anise, and oil. Over medium-low heat, heat slowly to 325 degrees Fahrenheit and then turn off the heat. After waiting 6-7 minutes, remove the black pepper, cinnamon stick, and star anise with a slotted spoon.
Add the minced chilies and let it rest in hot oil. It should start to smell fragrant almost like popcorn. Let the oil cool. This produces more hot chili oil than you need, but you’ll be happy to have it on hand to use in other dishes.
Chopped pepper flakes are quite hot, so if you want a lighter chili oil, take all the dried red peppers from any Asian market, separate the seeds, and then finely chop them using a food processor to make the oil. If you want to make a larger batch to keep, you can also check out Kaitlin’s post on How to Make Chili Oil.
THE MEAT MIXTURE (Noodles Recipes):
- 2 teaspoons of shaoxing wine
- 1/2 teaspoon of five spice powder.
- 1 teaspoon dark soy sauce.
- 2 teaspoons of sweet bean sauce.
In a wok, heat a teaspoon of oil over medium heat and fry the ground pork. Add sweet bean sauce, shaoxing wine, dark soy sauce, and five-spice powder. Cook until all the liquid has evaporated. Set aside. Heat the remaining 2 teaspoons of oil in a skillet over medium heat and sauté the sui mi ya ci (vegetable pickle) for a few minutes. Set aside.
