Brothy Chinese Noodles

Your rating: None Average: 4.2 (140 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!...

My boyfriend was pretty dead on when he said it tasted like kicked up chicken noodle soup. I found there wasn't enough broth for our taste so I added another 2 cups of broth plus more of the seasoning. I also added shredded carrots. I like tang so I also added 2 more tablespoons of vinegar. We ate it, but I won't make it again.

Easy noodle soup recipe

I didn't have hot sesame oil so I used the regular toasted sesame oil I had on hand. The dish tasted a little bland to me so I added a few dashes of sriracha to it and it really made the difference. You definitely need that heat to take this dish to the next level.

Tastes just like authentic asian food, great flavor

This is a recipe that I will add to my "regular" list..VERY good taste, made me want more!

Simple to make, lots of flavor, quick prep
quick, comforting and tasty

Loved this soup. Easy and fast to make, filling without being heavy and tasted like a soup I get at the noodle soup in town. And as a bonus, it's relatively inexpensive to make.


This is decent, it's not something you'll serve at your next dinner party-but its pretty comforting and homey. Didn't have the hot sesame oil-used red pepper flakes. Also garnished with some cilantro-I think without the cilantro it would be very very bland. I also added 2 chicken bouillon cubes.
