Saozi Noodles There are three main steps to make Saozi Noodles:

First, make hand-pulled noodles. Authentic Saozi Noodles are made of hand-pulled noodles, but it is too hard for people who have never been trained to pull dough into noodles. You can buy noodles at supermarkets.

Second, make the Saozi. This is the most important step.

Chop the pork, garlic and ginger and cut carrot, dried bean curd, shallot, garlic, ginger, potato, green pepper and agarics into small slices. Heat the pan, add some oil, and sauté the chopped pork while stirring continuously.

When the pork is medium rare, add the chopped ginger and the small pieces of carrot, dried bean curd, garlic, potato, green pepper and agarics, and then add a little salt and sugar. Continue to sauté the ingredients while stirring continuously.

When the chopped pork is medium to well-done, add some mature vinegar, and then some soy sauce. Continue to sauté the ingredients while stirring continuously.

When the chopped pork is well-done, add some hot pepper powder, and then add a little water and braise them for few minutes.

Now, the Saozi is well done and ready for the last step.

Make the soup.

Clean the pan and add some oil. After the oil has been heated, add some mature vinegar and some salt and water (not too much). After that put the Saozi into it and boil the soup. Meanwhile, cook noodles in another saucepan; after the noodles are cooked, drain the noodles. When the soup is boiled, add some hot pepper powder and small pieces of shallot, and then the soup is done.

Pour the soup on the noodles and mix them well. The Saozi Noodle is done and you can enjoy it.
