With JADE Sichuan Sauces, you can make a noodle bowl that rivals a restaurant version of the popular dan dan noodles. While the noodles cook, lightly brown ground meat. Spoon meat over noodles and drizzle with spicy JADE Sichuan Peanut Sauce to taste. Presto, in minutes you have an instant meal in a bowl.
Spicy Sichuan Noodles
Serve the noodles with stir-fried spinach, blanched Chinese broccoli, or green beans. Or if you like, add a handful of bean sprouts to the bowl.
Makes 2 or 3 servings
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
8 ounces ground pork, turkey, or beef
1 tablespoon soy sauce
8 ounces dried Chinese noodles or 12 ounces fresh Chinese noodles (loosen with hands)
1/3 cup Jade Sichuan Peanut Sauce, or to taste
3 tablespoons thinly sliced green onion
1. In a 6- to 8-quart pan over high heat, bring about 3 quarts water to a boil. Add noodles and stir to separate. Cook until noodles are barely tender to bite, 1 to 3 minutes for fresh, 5 to 6 minutes for dried. Drain noodles. Rinse well with hot water and drain again. Place the noodles in 2 or 3 bowls, cover to keep hot.
2. Meanwhile, set a 12-inch nonstick frying pan over medium-high heat. When the pan is hot, add oil and meat. Stir often until meat is loose and crumbly and begins to brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Add soy sauce and stir until meat is lightly browned, about 1 minute. Spoon equal portions of the meat mixture over each bowl of noodles. Drizzle with Jade Sichuan Peanut Sauce to taste. Sprinkle with green onions and toss lightly.
