Inspired by 'Dan Dan Noodles', these moreish pork noodles are coated in a deliciously spicy chilli-sesame sauce before being topped with crispy onions, crushed peanuts and fresh green chilli. No need to get a takeaway when you can easily achieve such punchy flavours at home! (Dairy-free: see our FAQs for details.)

Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Spicy Pork & Sesame Noodles

Boil a kettle

Slice the green chilli[es] finely

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the ginger

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

 

2 Spicy Pork & Sesame Noodles

Rip the leaves off the spring greens, discard the tough stalks, then layer the leaves over each other, roll them up and slice into thin strips

 

 

3 Spicy Pork & Sesame Noodles

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a small drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium-high heat

Once hot, add the pork mince and cook for 5-6 min or until browned and very crispy, breaking it up with a wooden spoon as you go

Once crispy, transfer the crispy pork to a plate and set aside

Reserve the pan

4 Spicy Pork & Sesame Noodles

Meanwhile, add the wholewheat noodles to a pot and cover them with boiled water until fully submerged

Bring to the boil over a high heat and cook for 3-4 min or until tender

Once tender, drain the noodles, reserving a cup of the starchy noodle water

Tip: drizzle over a little vegetable oil to stop the noodles from sticking together

5 Spicy Pork & Sesame Noodles

Return the reserved pan to a medium heat with a drizzle of vegetable oil

Once hot, add the sliced spring greens with a pinch of salt and cook for 3-4 min or until wilted 

6 Spicy Pork & Sesame Noodles

Meanwhile, add the tahini to a bowl with the soy sauce, chopped garlic, chopped ginger, Sriracha hot chilli sauce, chilli flakes (Can't handle the heat? Go easy!) and Chinese rice wine with 50ml [80ml] of the starchy noodle water

Give everything a good mix up – this is your spicy sesame sauce

Bash the peanuts with a rolling pin until roughly crushed (keep them in the bag so you don't lose any!)

7 Spicy Pork & Sesame Noodles

Add the drained noodles, crispy pork and spicy sesame sauce to the pan with the wilted spring greens and give everything a good mix up – these are your spicy pork & sesame noodles

Tip: add a splash more starchy noodle water if the sauce is looking a little dry
