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

  • 1.

    Sprinkle the Chilli Oil Mix into a large pan and set it over a medium-low heat. Stir for about 1 min until you start to smell the aromas from the spices, then add 4 tbsps of oil. Mix together for 20 secs then pour it into a small bowl to let it infuse. (This is your chilli oil for later.)

  • 2.

    Heat a little oil in the same pan over high heat and fry the pork for 2 mins, breaking it up with a spatula. Add the Noodle Base Paste and mix it in, then continue to fry the mince, breaking it up into small pieces until the liquid evaporates and the pork becomes golden and crisp. (This will take some time but it will eventually get there!) Meanwhile, get a pot of water on to boil for the noodles later on. Add the Sichuan Stock to the pork along with 1 tbsp honey and stir fry for 3 mins. (If you need a little more oil, take some from your chilli oil bowl.) Stir the spring onions into the pork, then turn the heat off and move onto step 3.

  • 3.

    Put the noodles into the boiling water and cook for 3 mins. Add the broccoli to the noodles and cook for 4 more mins then drain in a sieve. Tip the noodles and veg into the pork, turn the heat back on to medium and mix it all up.

  • 4.

    Serve the noodles in bowls and drizzle the chilli oil (take it lightly if you don't like too much heat) over the noodles. Sprinkle some sesame seeds on top and/or a tiny drizzle of sesame oil over it (if using).

Natalie - Jun 12, 2018

Flavours are good but quite salty!

Simon - Jun 09, 2018

Excellent meal but you need to be consistent with name of pots on recipe card. Noodle base paste or Dan Dan marinade.

Stephanie - Jun 07, 2018

.....need another bowl full....

Sam - Jun 07, 2018

Nice flavours, bit dry.

Ann - Jun 05, 2018

Nice taste but very dry.

Kelly - May 28, 2018

Delicious! But the 'Dan Dan' stock was actually called 'noodle base paste' on the pot which is a bit odd when deciding which pot to add into the cooking!

tara - May 27, 2018

Really easy and tasty. I’ve ordered this many times now. Quick, easy and tasty dinner!

Kerry - May 16, 2018

Really enjoyed this. Quite sweet and not as hot as i expected.

Louisa - May 14, 2018

Would have preferred more veggies (even though added edamame beans to the recipe). Nice, just not amazing!

Cheryl - May 13, 2018

Fantastic! Loved the flavoursome crispy pork with the chilli oil and freshness of tenderstem broccoli. Very nice.

Katherine - May 09, 2018

Abi - Apr 22, 2018

Tasty, didn’t find the chilli oil too hot either, really finished off the dish

Jen - Apr 20, 2018

Adapted this using Quorn instead of real lamb mince and I thought this recipe was fantastic!

Naomi - Apr 19, 2018

Gorgeous, really tasty, loved it

Natacha - Apr 18, 2018

My favourite recipe so far! Unfortunately I am not able to select again, as it does not show upon my options. Please help!

christina - Apr 17, 2018

the chilli sauce is very spicy but other than that its very nice.

Mollie - Apr 16, 2018

Delicious! But needs some sauce to go with it. Hoisin sauce on it went down a treat

Faye - Apr 12, 2018

Not a lot of flavour

Nicola - Apr 12, 2018

Really enjoyed this! Was a nice change and tasty. The side sauce is definitely needed for flavour, but sparingly as it is quite hot!

Katharine - Apr 11, 2018

Tasty dish but a bit high on calories when you add the oil which is really needed for the extra kick of heat

Michelle - Apr 11, 2018

I was a little apprehensive about this as I don't like broccoli but I though 'sod it' and I gave it a go - so glad I did it's delicious!

David - Apr 08, 2018

No idea if this is good as the recipes wants Dan Dan stock added except there isn’t any, i had a pot of sichuan paste so fired that in

katie - Apr 07, 2018


Ian - Apr 02, 2018

Really good

Nicola - Mar 28, 2018

A bit dry

Kirsty - Mar 27, 2018

Slightly too dry. So on our 2nd order of this we added a poached egg on top. Made all the difference. (We had a similar dish in a thai restaurant that did this, it wasnt our weird idea. But it does work)

Lauren - Mar 26, 2018

Lovely flavours. Made it with turkey mince instead. Was a little dry and was lacking a sauce but otherwise very tasty.

Denise - Mar 25, 2018

A firm favourite thus was a repeat order

Mahiyar - Mar 23, 2018

The Dan Dan is really deelish, scoring very highly on taste, texture and ease of cooking - it will certainly be a frequent visitor to our palates! Be careful with the chilli oil mix (pretty potent!) but do use it as it adds a fabulous zing to the pork, the noodles and the veggies! And the sesame seeds work very well too.

Rebecca - Mar 20, 2018

Tasted good, recipe reference didn’t match label on pots - and also unclear whether you’re supposed to make a stock with water or just add the contents of the Dan Dan pot.

kevin - Mar 20, 2018

Loved by 12yr old

Gemma - Mar 16, 2018

yum yum

Carl - Mar 16, 2018

Seemed to be missing a sauce to help bind the meat to the noodles. Very tasty and easy to cook

Linda - Mar 14, 2018


Tracy - Mar 13, 2018

Was really nice, had its distinct flavour whereas those from a take away seem beyond bland

Lois - Mar 13, 2018

Really nice, simple dish that tasted healthy & fresh.

Catherine - Mar 08, 2018

This is one of our favourites so far. The chilli oil is hot, but not overpowering. We did it with mange tout instead of brocolli and found it worked really well!
