Sichuan Dan Dan Noodles4.4/5 (BASED ON 1688 reviews)
Sichuan Dan Dan Noodles has been a classic dish on the streets of Chengdu for decades. The noodles are named after the pole that the walking street vendorscarried (dandan) when selling this dish with two baskets of noodles and sauce attached at either end. Rather than the traditional broth style dish, ours is more likethe American Chinese version of Dandan noodles where tender boiled egg noodles are topped with crispy pork with a slightly smoky and spicy chilli oil drizzle.

Our 20 minute recipe
Make your own chilli oil
Gently toast the CHILLI OIL MIX in a large pan (with no oil) for 40 secs, taking care not to burn the spices. Then add 4 tbsps of oil. Stir for 20 secs then pour it into a small bowl and keep it aside as your chilli oil for later.
Cook the pork mince
In the same pan, fry the pork mince in some oil for 2 mins over high heat.
Add the DAN DAN STOCK pot and fry until the pork is crisp and brown (see tip!).
Add the SICHUAN PASTE and 1 tbsp honey and fry for 2 mins.
Stir in the spring onions, then turn the heat off.
Boil the noodles and veg
Boil the noodles in a separate pan for 3 mins.
Add the broccoli to the noodles and cook for 4 more mins, or until both are tender.
Drain the veg and noodles then add to the pork. Turn the heat back on to medium and mix it all up.
Serve the noodles with your chilli oil drizzled over. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and a drizzle of sesame oil (if using).

found it was a bit bland, felt like it needed some veg like beansprouts?
Allan - Dec 09, 2018
Made huge portion, how much oil you add determines heat. That’s the chilli oil used at the end..
Rachael - Dec 07, 2018

Donna - Nov 25, 2018

Carol - Nov 24, 2018

Wanted to make a vegetarian version ... but doesn’t work too well with soya mince.
Louise - Nov 20, 2018
Lynsey - Nov 19, 2018
Make sure crisp up the mince. Addition of coriander and squeeze of fresh lime at the is the biz???????? one of the best!
Dominic - Nov 19, 2018
Pork took quite a while to become properly crispy but well worth the extra time.
David - Nov 19, 2018
Wasnt really that flavoursome
Emma - Nov 19, 2018
My absolute favourite simply cook dish, delicious!
Seun - Nov 18, 2018
Found it quite bland
james - Nov 17, 2018
I used sliced pork fillet as I don’t like minced pork and it worked really well
Sarah - Nov 16, 2018
Properly Chinese takeaway flavouring. I’d never think to crisp up pork mince in such a way.
Victoria - Nov 15, 2018
So tasty and so quick to cook as always, I would deff eat this again.
Victoria - Nov 15, 2018
Easy and so delicious. I didn't have spring onions so used shallots and swapped purple sprouting broccoli for tenderstem - still tasted great.
Nicola - Nov 15, 2018
Lovely and tasty, very easy
Martin - Nov 14, 2018
Rather bland / dry, grew on me as the chilli heat built up as I carried on eating it. Avoid cheap mince - the Tesco 5% that I used contained so much water that it wouldn't crisp up.
Susannah - Nov 14, 2018
Valerie - Nov 14, 2018
I have come to expect really excellent dishes from simply cook but this one was a miss - predominant flavour is a very one dimensional chilli and everything has a very similar texture which was dull (though this could have been a self inflicted problem!). I won’t be ordering this dish again.
Helen - Nov 14, 2018
My husband went back for seconds he said it was one of the best meals he has had in a long time. Would definitely do this meal again.
Harriet - Nov 13, 2018
A great fish. Something out of the ordinary I wouldn’t cook myself usually
Xinyi - Nov 13, 2018
Overall a really good dish, although it differs greatly to what I know as DanDan noodles. It is a bit too oily, would be better if could cut the calories down.
Sarah - Nov 12, 2018
I used soya mince, it was delicious.. especially the chilli oil to drizzle on top
Coral - Nov 11, 2018

Great taste and easy to cook

I use fresh Singapore noodles and add scrambled egg, swap out the broccoli for asparagus. Lovely!
Frances - Nov 06, 2018
My boys loved this but I thought something was missing from the flavour.
