Easy Sichuan Dan Dan Noodle Recipe

This Dan Dan Noodle Recipe combines my two great loves: noodles and chili oil. I always love spicy dishes with lots of chilis. A classic Sichuan comfort food, the Dan Dan noodle recipe is normally served in a thick red broth made with chili oil. My recipe came out less soupy and more like spicy spaghetti because of the rich sesame paste I’ve added. In addition, I’ve added yu choy (Chinese greens) and pork to finish off the dish. You will love the peanuty flavour combined with the chili oil for a little bit of heat.
