Hoisin Noodles everything prepared

Hoisin Noodle Tray

Taiwanese Noodles, Green Onion, Bean Sprouts, Onion, Green & Red Bell Peppers, thinly sliced velveted Pork with Hoisin Noodle Sauce.

Taiwanese Noodles


For this recipe, I used Taiwanese sliced Noodles. But Chow Mein Noodles or other similar Noodles can be used just the same. Boil for the package recommended times.

One coil of Taiwanese Noodles weighs about 65 g – 70 g.

Hoisin Noodle Sauce Ingredients

Hoisin Noodle Sauce

  • Hoisin Sauce
  • Soy Sauce
  • Rice Wine Vinegar
  • Sesame Oil
  • Mirin or Sugar
  • Chili Oil
  • Dehydrated Onion & Garlic – each

Hoisin Noodle Proteins

Use about 1/2 lb. of either thinly sliced Pork, Beef or Chicken Breast. Sliced across the grain.

Thinly sliced pork

Sliced Pork

Velveting meat

For Velveting, 1/2 Tbl of Cornstarch & Water with 1/4 tsp of Baking Soda is added and mixed in very well into 1/2 lb. of Meat. Instead of Water, the same amount of Soy Sauce can be used. This will color the meat and add a bit of flavor.

The meat only marinates for a short time, the time it takes to boil the water. Then placed into the boiling water for a few seconds and scooped out to set aside. This starts the cooking of the meat and washes off the Velveting ingredients, creating very tender meat for the Stir Fry.

There are all kinds of ways to Velvet meat. This one creates that Tender Meat in a relatively short time.

Velveted Pork

Velveted Meat

  • 1/2 lb of Pork
  • 1/2 Tbl Cornstarch & Cold Water
  • 1/4 tsp Baking Soda

If you opt to go with more meat in the dish, then use 1 lbs. of thinly sliced meat. Velvet with 1 Tbl of Cornstarch & Water or Soy Sauce and keep the Baking Soda the same, at 1/4 tsp.

Hoisin Noodle Vegetables

Both an Onion & Bell Peppers (green & red) are used in this recipe. This is all you really need for the Hoisin Noodles. However, the addition of Bean Sprouts & Green Onions are really nice. Shredded Carrots are pretty good too.

Peppers & Onion

Onions & Peppers

Use about 1 small Onion or 100 g of sliced Onions and both Red & Green Bell Peppers at about 50 g each.

Bean Sprouts & Green Onions are added in last. With Green Onions, the White & light Green parts can go into the Wok at the same time as the Onions. Save the Top green parts to add with the Bean Sprouts.

Bean Sprouts

Bean Sprouts

Optionally add 100 g or more of rinsed Bean Sprouts.

Hoisin Noodle Cookware

The Kitchen cookware needed to make Hoisin noodles are first a good quality Wok with a lid.

  1. Spider – to scoop the meat out and place into a bowl.
  2. Strainer – for the noodles, which will get placed into a bowl and filled with cold water to stop the cooking process and then strained again and left to dry.
  3. Spatula – to keep things moving.

Along with some bowls to hold the various ingredients and a pair of tongs to serve the Hoisin Noodles.

Hoisin Noodle Equipment

Hoisin Noodle Cookware

Wok, Spider, Strainer and Spatula.

Platter Tray

Vegetable Tray

The use of a Vegetable Tray I find extremely helpful. It holds all the various ingredients and accessed all from one place.

You can also use Serving Trays and just place all the ingredients on it or into bowls and on the serving tray.

How to make Hoisin Noodles

This dish comes together pretty fast, so you want all your ingredients ready to go. Fill a Wok up with water and bring it to a boil first. While you place the thinly sliced meat into a bowl with the Velveting Ingredients. Then the Vegetables & Hoisin Sauce can be prepared.

Preparing Hoisin Noodles

Fill a Wok up with water and bring it to a boil before you start anything else.

Velveted Pork

Protein Marinade

Place 1/2 lb. thinly sliced meat into a bowl and add;

  • 1/2 Tbl of Water & Cornstarch
  • 1/4 tsp Baking Soda

Sliced Peppers & Onion


Thinly slice Onion & Peppers to weigh out 100 g each of Onion and 50 g each of Red & Green Bell Peppers.

Prepare and add in other vegetables such as shredded Carrots and/or the white parts of Green onions to include when stir frying the Onions and/or Bean Sprouts, which can be added towards the end to stir fry briefly with the Tops of the Green Onions if adding.

Two Coils of Taiwanese Noodles


Set aside 2 coils of Noodles, which should be enough for 4 portions along with the Meat & Vegetables.

Chow Mein Noodles can also be used anywhere from 140 g – 200 g for this dish.

Hoisin Noodle Sauce

Cooking Hoisin Noodles

With everything laid out and ready to go and the water at a boil, it’s time to Wok it out!

Simmered Velveted Pork

Simmer the meat

Place the meat in the boiling water to cook until it comes back to a boil. Scoop the meat out with the spider and set aside.

Cover to help it come to a boil faster.

Cooked and Cooled Taiwanese Noodles

Boil the Noodles

Add the Noodles to the Boiling water and cook according to package instructions. Cover to bring it to a boil faster at the start. Once boiling, leave it uncovered. For these Taiwanese noodles, it’s 6 minutes.

Strain out the Water and place the Noodles into a bowl filled with cold water. Strain again and repeat until the noodles are cold. Leave them in the strainer rested on the bowl to dry.

Searing Velveted Pork


Clean out the Wok and place 2-3 Tbl of Oil in on Max Heat. Wait for the Wok to get Smokin Hot.

Add the Meat, toss and leave it for a bit to brown. Repeat until light browning.

Seared Pork & Vegetables

Stir Fry the Vegetables

Add the Vegetables (Onions & Peppers) and stir fry until softened but still crisp. Just a minute or so. Keep everything moving at this point.

Optionally add in the white parts of Green Onions and Shredded Carrots.
