This is a Shaanxi cold noodle. So, what’s that? Well, it’s from a region of China. It’s really quite good, but a bit of trouble to cook. But I’m going to cook it. You can always watch me battle with it in the episode of Instant Noodle Recipe Time at the bottom of this post. You can also subscribe to my YouTube channel as I have a new episode of the show every single day. Anyways, let’s give it a try!
Qinsheng Shaanxi Cold Noodle Sour & Spicy Flavor – China
A distributor’s sticker (click to enlarge).
Detail of the packaging (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free from the distributor’s sticker, but check for yourself. To prepare, boil the liangpi noodles for 5-10 minutes until al dente. Boil gluten for around the same amount of time. Rinse liangpi noodles and gluten, remove- it’s meant to be eaten dry. Combine the gluten and liangpi noodles. Finally, stir in the sauce and enjoy!
Here’s the liangpi noodles. These need a lot of time to cook.
Perhaps the spicy.
Perhaps the sour (black vinegar usually).
A sachet of gluten.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added green onion, sesame seed, Fresno pepper, and crushed red pepper. The noodle came out quite well – a narrow flat broad noodle with a very knife cut mouthfeel. The way it worked with the flavorings was very good – again, this is a cold variety. It was a kind of spicy vinaigrette thing, which was tasty and really well done. Surprised and impressed – 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 6933349214040.
