For Pork Topping

  • 1lb ground pork
  • 15g rock sugar
  • ⅛ cup of cooking oil
  • 1 tbsp broad bean paste
  • 30g minced garlic
  • 10g minced ginger
  • 2 tbsp Shao Xing cooking wine
  • 3 tsp sweetened soybean paste
  • 2 ½ cup of water
  • 1 tbsp dark soy sauce
  • 1 tsp multi-flavor spices
  • 1 tsp white pepper
  • 1 tsp sugar

For Base Seasoning

  • ⅛ tsp salt (optional)
  • ¼ tsp white pepper
  • ¼ tsp sugar
  • ⅛ tsp ground Sichuan peppercorn
  • ⅛ tsp ground green peppercorn
  • ½ tsp dark soy sauce
  • ½ tsp  soy sauce
  • 3/4 tbsp sesame paste
  • 1 tbsp garlic water
  • 1 tbsp red chili oil


  1. In a wok, bring 2 liters of water to boil. Once boiling, add the ground pork and stir frequently to help separate the meat. Cook until the meat is no longer pink or red. Use a strainer to drain and rinse the cooked meat under running tap water, then set aside.
    Note: This step helps get rid of the blood from the meat and helps separate the ground pork.
  2. In a clean wok on medium to high heat, add ⅛ cup of oil and rock sugar. Stir the mixture together in a quick circular motion until the color reaches a deep brown. Next, add in the precooked ground pork and mix well.
    Note: This step helps sheen the color of the meat.
  3. Now add the Broad Bean Paste and mix. Follow with the garlic and ginger and stir until the water in the wok has evaporated.
  4. Next add the cooking wine and sweetened soybean paste. Stir for 1 minute then pour 2 ½ cups of water, the dark soy sauce, multi flavored spices, white pepper, and sugar. Turn to low heat, cover the wok, and cook for 45 minutes.
  5. Wash and chop the green leaf vegetables. Set aside for later use.
  6. Prepare the number of bowls you will be serving and start adding ingredients to each one.
  7. To cook the noodles, boil some water in a tall pot. Make sure you have enough water to cover the noodles. When the noodles are almost fully cooked, add 1 tbsp of the noodle water into each bowl you will be serving and mix well.
    Note: The hot noodle water will help dissolve the sesame paste and other seasonings in the bowl.
  8. Once noodles are fully cooked, remove them and drain. Place your desired amount of noodles in each bowl.
  9. Boil the vegetables in the boiled noodle water for 20 seconds or until they turn bright green. Remove and place them on top of the noodles.
  10. Lastly, top the bowls off with ⅓ of meat sauce or more. Garnish with chopped scallion, mix the noodles, and enjoy!
