These Dan-Dan Noodles (Mien) are absolutely marvelous noodles that hit the spot! It’s unbelievably easy, too.
I know this post is coming right on the tail of these Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies, which just went live. Can you handle two posts in one day? This might be the single and only time that will ever happen. It’s due to technical difficulties, not over-achievement.
I had nail-biting, foot-stomping tech issues last night, and my Tech Master was already asleep. (Because I’m totally a night owl and he’s really not.) So, I had to put my unpublished cookies to rest last night, trusting it would still be here when I started my computer today. Thankfully, it was mostly recovered, and those butterscotch babies got published.
That’s why we’re enjoying a special “2fer” today…
But I won’t apologize too much to all of my friends who are getting two emails from me today 🙂
That’s because these Dan-Dan Noodles are worth it. Worth it, I promise. Every single strand.
This heaping bowl of noodles blew our minds away. Something this easy to pull together can result in such amazing flavors? Apparently so.
I made a double batch of this recipe, because I thought it would be great to have enough dinner to last two nights. In our little family, a double batch of these Dan-Dan Noodles lasted 1.5 nights. The second night, there was actually only enough left over for one adult. So a double batch technically only lasted 1.25 nights. Will I have to quadruple everything when our boys are teens??
These noodles (called mien in Chinese) are SO GOOD. Savory, sweet, garlicky, with a subtle kick. It’s also healthy, easy, and leftovers are awesome. If you can manage to have leftovers.
