Sichuan Dan Dan Noodles4.2/5 (BASED ON 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 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
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 above).
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 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.
Serve the noodles with your chilli oil drizzled over. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and a drizzle of sesame oil (if using).

Used minced quorn - it was on the drier side but very tasty
Ashleen - Nov 07, 2019
Really tasty. Loved the tip to cook the pork mince until it is nice and crispy. It would be even nicer if there was a flavour pot for the noodles as well. Unfortunately I managed to cremate the spice mix for the chilli oil (in hindsight I should have used a low heat but I used medium) but the chilli oil was still lovely.

The pork is delicious. After I fried the pork and was waiting for the noodles to cook. I couldn't stop myself from picking up pieces of pork. it's so delicious and full of flavour. however, the noodles and broccoli are just boiled and then tossed into the pork. after doing that the dish itself loses alot of flavour which was a bit disappointing. but still tasted very nice.
