Jamie Oliver’s Dan Dan Noodles

Another recipe form my favourite chef Jamie Oliver 20 minutes’ recipe. This serves 4 people.


  • 400g minced beef  (I used chicken mince)
  • 1 tablespoon Szechuan pepper
  • 1 chicken stock cube
  • 5 medium dried red chili
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 300g dried egg noodles
  • 1 tablespoon runny honey ( I used normal honey)
  • 4 medium bok choi
  • 4 cloves of garlic, peeled and finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons dark soy sauce
  • 1 small bunch spring onion
  • 1 lime, quartered, to serve
  • 100ml vegetable oil


  • Crumble your stock cube into a large pan of water and get it on the heat.

  • Place a wok on a medium heat and crumble in the dried chillies. Toast for a minute or so. Add the vegetable oil, then pour all of the chillies and most of the oil into a bowl and put in one side.

  • Turn the heat up to high and add the mince. Stir fry for 10 minutes or so until crispy.

  • Peel and finely slice the garlic.

  • Trim and chop the spring onions and grind the Szechuan peppercorn in a pestle and mortar. Cut the lime into wedges for later.

  • Tip the noodles into the boiling stock and separate them with tongs to ensure they don’t stick together. Cook according to packet instructions.

  • When the meat is done, spoon any fat out of the pan. Add the honey and stir fry for another minute until all the mince is coated and sticky. Pop the wok in the oven to keep warm.

  • Cut your bok choi into quarters lengthways and drop them in with the noodles for the last minute of cooking.

  • When your noodle and bok choi are cooked, scoop out a cupful of water to keep.

  • The drain in the colander. Tip your noodle, bok choi and the cup of water back into the hot pan.

  • Add your raw garlic, soy sauce, ground Szechuan peppercorns and as much chilli oil as you dare and give everything a good m ix together. Cover with a lid.
  • Put the noodles in a bowl. Get your wok of crispy meat out of the oven and spoon the meat over the top of your noodles.

  • Drizzle with a little extra chilli oil then scatter each portion with chopped spring onions. Serve with lime wedge for squeezing over.


The noodle was really yummy.
