Wanton Noodles with Homemade Char Siew 叉烧云吞面


Too much feasting for the past few days, so we just wanted something simple. Jaz has been asking for my Char Siew as she said she really liked it the last time I made the meat to go with this wanton noodles. And the whole family loves the wanton noodles I cooked that time, so here I am, doing the same dish again for dinner.

My first attempt previously.

My first attempt previously.

For the Char Siew, I used the recipe from Rasa Malaysia. Though the colour is not that red, the taste is good ^^

{RECIPE – Char Siew}


450 g skinless pork belly, cut into 2 long strips
2 tablespoons finely chopped garlic

Char Siu Sauce:
2 pieces Chinese fermented red bean curd
1 tablespoon maltose
1 tablespoon Chinese Shaoxing wine
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon oyster sauce
1 teaspoon dark and thick soy sauce
1 teaspoon five-spice powder
1/4 teaspoon white pepper powder
100 g sugar, or 8 1/2 tablespoons


1. Get a big bowl, mix all the Char Siu Sauce ingredients, add the garlic and pork belly and marinate overnight in the fridge.
2. The next day, heat the oven to 200 degrees C.
3. Place the pork belly on a wire rack and bake for 15 minutes.
4. Removed from oven and turn the pork belly over, brush the remaining char siu sauce over and place the pork belly back in the oven for another 15 minutes or until cooked. The char siu will look dark in color, it’s normal.
5. Slice the char siu into thin and bite-size pieces, serve immediately.

As for the sauce for the noodles, I used the recipe from Shar’s blog (Delishar). It’s totally yummy! The proportion of the different condiments add up to a perfect mix! You must try it yourself!

You may click on the link here Char Siu Wanton Noodles as Shar has included not just the recipe for the sauce but a great-looking recipe for the wanton as well! Looks so yummy! And her wantons are so neatly wrapped!

I’m definitely keeping this recipe for a quick fix for wanton noodles craving. Hmm … actually I’m thinking … maybe it’s time I should try making own noodles too, like what many of my friends are already doing (^-^)
