Sichuan dan dan noodles with pork and braised greens
35 – 45 Minutes
Not your everyday noodles, these are quick to prepare and get big flavor from chile oil–infused ground pork.
- 6 ounces fresh ramen noodles
- ½ teaspoon Sichuan peppercorns
- 1 teaspoon red chile flakes (optional)
- 10 ounces ground pork
- 10 ounces braising greens
- Sun Basket dan dan noodle blend (gluten-free tamari - cashew butter - honey - sesame oil - rice vinegar - fresh garlic - fresh ginger)
- 3 tablespoons roasted cashews
- 3 scallions
If the ramen noodles begin to clump after cooking, rinse them under cold water once more to separate them.
Cook the ramen
While the water heats and the ramen cooks, prepare the chile oil, ground pork, and greens.
Make the chile oil
- On a cutting board, using a rolling pin or the bottom of a small bowl or pot, lightly crush the Sichuan peppercorns. Transfer the peppercorns to a small heatproof bowl, add as many chile flakes as you like, and stir to combine.
Cook the ground pork and greens
- Cut a small corner from the ground pork packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel.
- Coarsely chop the braising greens.
While the pork and greens cook, prepare the remaining ingredients.
Prep the garnishes
- Using the bottom of a bowl or cup, lightly crush the cashews.
- Trim the root ends from the scallions; thinly slice the scallions on the diagonal.
