Brothy Chinese Noodles

January/February 2010

Your rating: None Average: 4.2 (178 votes)

This dish was inspired by Chinese Dan Dan noodles—ground pork and noodles in a spicy broth. We use ground turkey and omit the traditional Sichuan peppercorns for convenience, but add hot sesame oil. Use toasted sesame oil instead if you want mild noodles.

"Love this dish! This is one that we always agree on. Have made it several times, and it always turns out great. Didn't have hot sesame oil but used regular with some red pepper flakes sprinkled in. (I always add more when serving myself!...

The recipe says it is modeled on flavorful and spicy dan dan noodles, which are a fave of mine. I love spicy, boldly flavored foods, and even with doubling the seasonings and adding some Thai chile paste (sambal olek) I still found this recipe too bland. If you like your foods mildly seasoned or you are serving children, it's a healthful dish and easy to prepare - just don't expect this to taste like dan dan noodles.


My husband calls this potsticker soup because he says it tastes like the inside of a potsticker with dipping sauce. It is super fast to make. We use ground chicken instead of turkey. I like a little bit more spice, so I add Sriracha to my serving.


Made this last night and it was delicious and easy! I think I used a little too much noodles as I didn't feel like I had a lot of broth or it was just absorbed by the noodles. It will definitely be added to my favorites!


My wife and I love this dish. It is outstanding with some Steamfresh Asian vegetables over the top. We did have one problem with the recipe though. When we calculated the calories, we came up with 381/serving, instead of the 292 shown.


Very easy, super tasty dinner. Definitely a keeper!
