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 like the 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. 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.

  2. 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 above).

    Add the Sichuan Paste and 1 tbsp honey and fry for 2 mins.

    Stir in the spring onions, then turn the heat off.

  3. Boil the noodles and veg

    Boil the noodles in a separate pan for 2 mins.

    Add the broccoli/beans 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.

  4. Serve

    Serve the noodles with your chilli oil drizzled over. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and a drizzle of sesame oil (if using).

Asher liked it. It was tasty but not amazing

Jayne - 2nd June 2020

Really nice. A tiny bit oily so we didn't use the chilli oil.

Noodles were a little over cooked, but very tasty

Used good quality pork mince from local butcher. Family agreed next time that we’ll slow cook a joint of pork the day before then shred to use instead of pork mince

I won’t call this Dan Dan noodle and it is quite different from ones that you would get in a Sechuan restaurants, it’s much sweeter than what we’d expect from a Dan Dan noodle. But it’s a good Chinese noodle stir fry dish nonetheless and I’d definitely make this again.

I have to say that I was not looking forward to this one but I loved it. A quick very tasty meal. We had some left over and was just as delish the next day. A firm favourite.
