One of my favorite Chinese dishes is pan-fried noodles. I used to make a gooey mess when I tried to make it. A sweet grandmother in my neighborhood taught me the secret to making this easy and delicious recipe, and it tastes like the one you find at any dim sum place.

  • 1 pound eggless noodle ("pan-fry")
  • 1 bunch scallions, thinly slice into 2 inches
  • 1 bag of bean sprouts, washed and dried
  • 3 gloves garlic, finely diced (or 1 teaspoon garlic powder)
  • 3 tablespoons dark soy sauce (Pearl River Bridge brand)
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup of water
  • 1 teaspoon salt (or add 1/2 more if desired)
  • 1 teaspoon sugar


  1. 1. Bring a pot of water to boil. Quickly cook the noodle for about 2 minutes. Remove from water and put it aside.
  2. 2. In a bowl mix in all the liquid, salt, sugar, and garlic. Set aside.
  3. 3. Heat the frying pan, add oil, scallions for 30 seconds then add 1/3 of the noodle. Stir the noodle for 1 minute, then add the soy sauce mixture into the noodle, stir it for another minute. Add bean sprouts, toss for another minute. Remove from pan into plate.
  4. Repeat step 3 with the rest of the noodle...1/3 at a time so the noodle will be well seasoned.

      Hi John. If you have an iron pan, use it. Keep it hot, it gives the wok essence...though if you are using non-stick not sure if it's a good idea to have it too hot, for health reason. Bon Appetit!
