Simple but unforgettable, boss, give me one bowl of Gantiao noodles! | 老板,来碗干挑!

我还是记得上一次我说要做干挑面的事。
I still remembered last time I said I’d like to make the noodles from my region – 干挑面 gān tiāo miàn.

当然不是随便说说哒! 
This is not a joke! 

我真的做了, 哈哈哈!
I made it, hahaha!

就跟我上次说的一样,这道菜是我们江浙北部的早餐之一。
As I said last time, this dish is mainly served as breakfast in the north of Zhejiang Province.

One of my childhood memories.
是我童年的回忆之一。

The basic receipt is cooked only with soybean sauce and lard (pork fat), don’t need to add any other flavorings. 其实基本的材料只要加酱油和猪油就可以了,不需要加其他调味料。

In order to enrich the flavor, I also added a bit of sesame oil and chopped green onions.
为了增加口感,我又添加了一些芝麻油和切碎的小葱。

 

The authentic Gantiao noodles should be cooked with fresh noodles. It looks like this:
正宗的干挑面要用那种‘湿面’,英语好像也叫‘fresh noodles’,长这样:

 

But for the first time, I used the dried noodles, you can find it everywhere in any supermarkets here. When selecting noodles, it is better to choose these round and thin ones.
不过第一次我拿了干面,这是这种在超市里随处可见的袋装面。袋装面也有很多品种,在挑选面条的时候,最好选择这种又圆又细的。

 

I used this one:
我用了这种:

It’s very easy to do it.
操作非常简单。

 

First of all, let’s boil water. After it starts boiling, put the noodles into it.
先煮一大锅水,等水煮开后,下面。

In the middles of boiling noodles, we add condiments into the bowl. Lard (pork fat) and soybean sauce are necessary, the others you can add according to your taste.
在等面煮熟的过程中,我们将调味料放入碗中,酱油和猪油是不可少的,其他的可以根据你自己的喜好来。

Boiling for around 7-10 minutes, we move the noodles into the prepared bowl.
大概7-10分钟后,捞出,装盘!

 

I added two stalks of bok choy and a fried egg on the top for decoration…oh no, for enriching the taste, sorry.
为了美观…哦,不好意思,为了丰满口感,我又加了两根青菜和一个荷包蛋。

 

 

But you can also add other things, such as braised pork or one hard-boiled egg. These would be the best combination for this noodle.
不过你也可以加其他东西,比如红烧肉或者水煮蛋。这个应该算是干挑里的极品了吧

 

Let’s feel it~
我们感受下~

 

For the second time, I made a ‘poor’ version – only added soybean sauce and pork fat. It looks less pretty than the first one, however, the taste remains good~
这是我第二次尝试的一个穷人版干挑,只放了酱油和猪油,看起来比第一次逊色很多,不过味道还是棒棒哒~

It seems there are no differences between the tastes.
之后对比一下,味道好像没有差别。

 

At last, let’s enjoy my other video – simple version, please excuse my poor French.
最后我们来欣赏一下一个简单版的,原谅我的法语
