Spicy Chinese noodles recipe

Sichuan Dan Dan Noodles by China Sichuan FoodFamous dish Dan dan noodles (担担面) is one of the most famous street foods in Sichuan cuisine. Another representative is Sichuan style sesame cold noodle. This recipe is firstly published in 2013 and after visiting lots of famous noodle restaurants during my last hometown travel, it seems quite necessary for me to update this recipe for a more authentic flavor.

New version here with every ingredient and details perfectly set!

This is the version in 2013 and I failed to find Ya-cai. So it is just a customized version with Zha Cai.

Ya-cai(芽菜) is one of the three most important and famous preserved vegetables in Sichuan cuisine. The other two are pickled zha cai and black salted turnip. Making different types of pickled and preserved vegetables is one of the daily cooking tasks of housewives in Sichuan province.Traditionally, we will have a large jar for keeping this unique ingredient. However for we mostly use packaged version for daily cooking now.

Szechuan style chili oil has been considered as one of the most important Szechuan seasonings, for returning reader, you may find I use it in many other recipes as saliva chicken (mouthwatering chicken)spicy wonton soup, Sichuan chicken noodle salad (Liang Mian), Chinese pig ear salad (red oil pig ear) etc. For easy homemade version, check how to make Chinese red oil or you can refer to Saliva Chicken for a more combined version.

History of Dan Dan Mein.

Sichuan Ya CaiThen I would like to introduce something about the name. Dandan in the name actually refers to a carrying pole(扁担 in Chinese ). In the past, the vendors carried the noodles and the sauces to sell them on the street. The fried pork and Ya-cai gravy is the most unique feature of Dan Dan noodles. I prefer hand minced pork other than ground pork, as the pork will taste better as larger ones. Try to fry the pork as dry as possible so we can get a slightly crisp taste.

How to serve dan dan noodles?

Please do not use large raman noodle bowls to serve dan dan noodles. Choose smaller ones and serve with a small amount (can be eat up within several minutes). Enjoy when it is still hot and the pork is still crisp.
