Sichuan dan dan noodles with pork and kale
35 – 50 Minutes
Not your everyday noodles, these are quick to prepare and get big flavor from chile oil–infused ground pork.
In your bag
- 6 ounces fresh ramen noodles
- ½ teaspoon Sichuan peppercorns
- 1 teaspoon red chile flakes (optional)
- 10 ounces ground pork
- 1 bunch organic curly-leaf or other kale (about ½ pound)
- 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 organic scallions
If the ramen noodles begin to clump after cooking, rinse them again under cold water to separate them.
Bearing no relation to black peppercorns or chiles, Sichuan peppercorns are the dried husks of the berries of the prickly ash shrub, a member of the citrus family. They have a distinct citrusy flavor and a beautiful pink-red color and contain a molecule that produces a mild sensation known in Chinese as málà, meaning “numbing and tingling.”
