Mandarin Duck & Thin Egg Noodles with Asian Greens

Mandarin Duck & Thin Egg Noodles with Asian Greens

This Chinese duck and noodle recipe is deceptively simple once you have a pot of hoisin sauce in the fridge. The secret ingredient is the juice of fresh mandarins which are currently in season.

Mandarin Duck & Thin Egg Noodles with Asian Greens

Serves 4

¼ cup hoisin sauce

2 tbsp chinese rice wine

1 tsp chinese five-spice powder

1 tbsp brown sugar

2 garlic cloves, crushed

6 dried shiitake mushrooms

1 Combine hoisin, rice wine, five-spice powder, sugar, garlic, mandarin juice 
and half of the shredded rind in 
a ceramic bowl. Add duck and toss until well combined. Set aside.

put mushrooms in a bowl and cover

stalks and thinly slice. Put noodles in 
a bowl and cover with boiling water.

2 Stand for 2 minutes or until softened. Drain. Heat a wok over high heat. 
Add 1 tsp oil and swirl around wok.

    not sure how this works…it says 3 duck breasts under ingredients and then it says to “add a quarter of the duck” ???? HOW? and how do you stir fry duck breasts? How long do you cook them for…Im sure it would be more than 2 minutes??? Salmonella? Its the first time I have selected a menu to cook from MIND food and rather disappointed that it is in-explainable.

      Hi Sue,

      Thank you for your comment. The duck can be divided after you have sliced it all up – as per the instructions to “slice horizontally”. The duck in these thin slices shouldn’t take too long to cook at all, as is the beauty of a delicious stir fry. Once you have cooked off the first quarter, then it is possible to add the rest. That way all the duck is cooked to perfection, along with whatever vegetables you add.
      Please let us know if you encounter any issues, we are always happy to help in any way we can.

      Kindest, Team MiNDFOOD
