Lucky Dan Dan Noodles
 
This is loosely based on the Sichuan dish. I've made it with both ground pork, ground chicken and ground turkey. I haven't made it with ground rooster. :)
Ingredients
  • Grapeseed Oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • ½ pound ground pork
  • 2 Tbsp chili paste
  • 3 Tbsp light soy
  • 1 tsp rice wine vinegar
  • ⅓ cup peanut butter
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 10 ounce fresh Chinese noodles (I can usually find them in the produce section near the tofu)
Instructions
  1. In a small bowl, mix the chili paste, soy, vinegar and peanut butter. Set aside.
  2. Cook noodles per package instructions and rinse with cold water when they are done. (I do the rinse because mine were REALLY starchy and starting to clump. If your noodles aren't starchy, you don't need to rinse them.)
  3. While the noodles are cooking heat a large saute pan with about 1-2 Tbsp grapeseed oil over medium high heat.
  4. Add garlic and cook until fragrant.
  5. Add pork and cook until browned.
  6. Stir in sauce and pour entire mixture over noodles.
  7. Garnish with some green onions.
  8. I also served mine with some pickled cucumbers and crushed peanuts.
  9. Just remember don't cut your noodles!!!
