Hand pulled noodle experiment #2 - Biang Biang Mian

edited September 2019 in Off Topic
Yes, I’m alone at home, pulling my noodle(s)...

In my quest for Chinese hand pulled noodles (lamian) I stumbled upon another , much easier type of hand pulled noodles - biang biang mian. 

AP flour, salt, 55% hydration. Mixed the dough and let it rest overnight at room temp.

pulled and boiled the noodles. 


Dressed with garlic fried in butter, sesame oil, mirin, soy, chinkiang vinegar, crushed Sichuan peppercorns, gochugaru chile powder, cilantro, green onions. 






OMFG!! This is one of the best and easiest cooks I’ve done this year re: effort vs. flavor payoff. After the garlicky, salty, acidic heat rolls off your tongue, you’re left with the slightly numb and tingly sensation of the Sichuan pepper.

This will go into regular rotation for sure.

     Thanks for the tip. Just checked it out and seems like their dough hydration is higher. I like the additions of ginger, star anise, cinnamon to the mix, so I'll try adding those next time. Can only make it better.

    Learned something new, thanks for sharing.  Have to think outside the ball, in my narrow mind, pulled noodle starts with just the dough ball, no rolling/cutting/slicing  :)

    I concur, and that’s the goal.

     But... baby steps!

     Different type of noodle than what I'm really trying to make, but  much easier. Turned out restaurant quality or better.  May make it again and drop an egg on it for breakfast tomorrow.

    That's a beautiful cook! I've never heard of this technique, but it looks interesting to say the least. That finished dish looks incredible!

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    Garlic 4-6 cloves fried in butter 2 TBSP

    Sesame oil 1 tsp
    Mirin 1 tsp
    Soy sauce, light  1tsp
    Chinkiang vinegar 1tsp
    Chile oil  1 tsp  
    Sichuan peppercorns, crushed   1 tsp
    Gochugaru chile powder (or coarsely ground dried red chiles) 1 tsp

    Cilantro
    Green onions 

    I used dough 150g to make the noodles and the above amounts worked well. But this was a small portion, so you'll need to scale up accordingly if making larger portions.

    That looks great.  I watched the guy's video... still seems like too much work for me :) but man those noodles look awesome.  I have had those out a few times and really like them, but I'd rather make them at home. (sometimes the Chinese restaurants add some sketchy meat I'm not keen on).

  • Yeah- on the list for this week. We had some incredible beef noodles in Dallas this week. Hand pulled to order. We all thought it was amazing. 

    This looks incredible. Will be a great platform for my attempt at that recipe.

    Ashish, there comes a time, when someone has to step in and cease this madness with noodles.

    Now is not that time. Keep banging these cooks out, and just know they are stolen and plagiarized by me in an ongoing basis.

    These meals look as awesome as they likely taste, and they make me look a hero.

    Thank you sir for posting.
