This Sichuan-inspired dish has so many rich, mouthwatering flavours in one bowl. The creamy, nutty sauce is made with tahini, and helps tame the heat from the hot chilli oil.

Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1

Boil a full kettle

Add the coriander seeds and black pepper to a pestle & mortar and grind into a fine powder – this is your coriander pepper

Chop the roots from the pak choi and separate the leaves, discarding the roots

Peel (scrape the skin off with a teaspoon) and finely chop (or grate) the ginger

2

Add the pork mince to a bowl with the rice wine vinegar, soy sauce, chopped ginger, 1 tsp [2 tsp] sugar and half the coriander pepper (save the rest for later!) and give everything a good mix up

3

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

Once hot, add the marinated pork mince and cook for 7-8 min, breaking it up with a wooden spoon as you go, until browned and caramelised

Once caramelised, add the pork to a plate and cover with tin foil to keep warm - this is your spicy pork

Reserve the pan

4

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

Bring to the boil over a high heat and cook for an initial 4-5 min

Add the pak choi leaves and cook for 1-2 min further or until the noodles are cooked with slight bite and the pak choi has softened

Once done, drain, drizzle with vegetable oil and set aside

5

Whilst the pork and noodles are cooking, add the toasted sesame oil to a bowl with half the cayenne pepper (can't handle the heat? Go easy!) and mix it all together – this is your chilli oil

Slice the red chilli[es] into rounds

Roughy chop the peanuts

6

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

Add the remaining coriander pepper and cayenne pepper and cook for 30 secs until fragrant

Once fragrant add the tahini and cook for 1 min until everything is combined

7

Dissolve 1/2 [1] Knorr chicken stock cube in 150ml [250ml] boiled water

Increase the heat to medium and gradually whisk the chicken stock into the tahini, a little at a time, and cook for 2-3 min or until a thick and creamy sauce remains – this is your dan dan sauce
