Noodle to Chinese people is just like pasta to Italians. We are obsessed with it and devoted to create many, many, many varieties.
I, too, love to make noodle from scratch at home. They are mostly for breakfast. I usually make dough and toppings ahead of time so that I can make noodle soup fast in the morning.
1 cup bread flour
1/4 cup of water
a pinch of salt
Pickled vegetable and ground pork toppings：
1/2 package of chopped pickled vegetable (available in any Asian grocery store)
1 cup ground pork
2 gloves of garlic, peeled and sliced
1 slice of ginger root, minced
freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon oyster sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/4 to 1/2 cup chicken stock, hot
1/4 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon garlic water (minced garlic in water)
1/4 teaspoon ground Sichuan pepper corns
2 to 3 tablespoon chili oil sauce (available in any Chinese grocery store. I use homemade version.)
1/2 teaspoon sugar
roasted soy beans
chopped green onion
salt to taste
2 tablespoons oil for cooking ground pork
In a medium bowl, combine bread flour, salt and water. Mix them together and then knead into a smooth dough ball. Cover with plastic wrap and let it sit for at least 1 hour.
Heat a wok over high heat. Add oil to the wok, along with garlic and ginger. Add ground pork and salt, black pepper and oyster sauce. Stir fry the ground pork on high heat until the pork is golden brown. Add chopped pickled vegetable. Stir fry for a couple more minutes. Remove from heat.
Bring a large pot of water to boil.
Run the dough through kitchenaid pasta roller several times until the dough is smooth out. Set the thickness to 3 and run it through one more time.
Use the pasta cutter attachment to cut it into spaghetti size noodle.
Isn’t it beautiful? O(∩_∩)O~
Cook the noodle in boiling water for 30 to 45 seconds. Drain and transfer to a bowl.
Add cooked ground pork, chicken stock, soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic water, ground Sichuan pepper corns, chili oil sauce, sugar, salt, cilantro, green onion and roasted soy beans.
Mix well with a pair of chopsticks. Now it is time to enjoy a bowl of tasty noodle!
