  1. I LOVE PF Chang's Dan Dan Noodles and my husband wanted to surprise me and try out this recipe! I think it was about as close to the PF Chang recipe as it can get! We added almost 5 times the amount of chili paste because we like our dan dan FIERY.
  2. Great recipe. FYI we made this vegetarian by using Morningstar farms "ground beef" and vegan oyster sauce. It turned out very well.
  3. These were terrific. My husband and I are fighting to see who will get the leftovers for lunch tomorrow. I left out the oyster sauce, b/c I never have it in the house. Everything else, I did as written. These were so good. I can't say how authentic they were, as I haven't had the restuarant version in a long time, but they were so gosh darn good. We will eat them often. Thanks for posting.
  4. Tried this last night. I was puzzled by the quantities listed because 4 ounces cooked chicken didn't seem right for 4 people, based on experience eating this at the restaurant. Too, the sauce was lacking "something". I think they didn't list all the ingredients because if you could make this at home, why dine out? Anyway, the flavor was good, it just wasn't what we get at the restaurant.


I currently live in Stuart, Florida which is a great place to live. I moved here from Orlando many years ago to live the life of a beach bum and have gotten quite good at it. I am actually a Yankee, but becoming more Southern by the day. During the past several years I found an absolute love for cooking. The man in my life loves to eat so we make a good match. I absolutely love Recipezaar and can no longer live without it. I think it is great that I can see what other people think of the recipes before I try them. I have some favorite chefs and reviewers on this site and I know when I try their recipes I can never lose ! My passions are my family, my fiance', my cat (Tasha), the beach, and now cooking. My pet peeve is anyone that abuses animals. AND THIS IS A BIG PET PEEVE ! I am currently a Paralegal but can't see myself doing this forever. If I did not work, I would probably spend my time cooking and taking care of the 50-animals that I would most likely adopt.
