Duck Egg Noodles - Siu Yuk - Peanut and Sesame

Updated: 3 days ago


For this recipe I simply wanted to come up with something that uses various Chinese techniques and create something simple and delicious. If I was a street food hawker based in china this is most likely something that would be on the menu! For the pork I went with a classic Siu Yuk (crispy pork belly), some fresh duck egg noodles and to bring everything together nicely a simple hot pot style sesame, chilli oil, soy and peanut sauce! Even writing this intro makes me want to make it again as it was that delicious! As making a good crispy pork takes 2 days to make I will start with that, however, this can also be cooked immediately if time is an issue. Let's cook!
