TikTok Recipe:  臊子面 | Saozi Noodles

One of the first dishes I learned from Karim was to make Saozi Noodles. He grew up eating lots of it and his family makes several different versions of Saozi Noodles at home. The first time I ate it, I couldn’t believe how filling it was. Just a bowl was enough to keep me full for the entire day!

How’s the flavor?

Since we make variations of it, the flavor changes according to the ingredients used. But we never fail to enjoy a big bowl of Saozi Noodles with black vinegar, Kaijia Chilli Oil and raw garlic. Adding those condiments bring out the best flavors.

Saozi Ingredients:

  • 1 cup minced beef
  • 1 tbsp chopped garlic
  • 1 tsp chopped ginger
  • 2 tbsp chopped leek
  • 1 small diced carrot
  • 3 small diced potatoes
  • 1/4 red diced red capsicum
  • 2 big diced tomatoes
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 tsp 5 spice powder
  • Salt to taste

Noodles Ingredients:

  • Handmade noodles or dried noodles. Occasionally we use pasta noodles.


  1. Fry the minced beef until it slightly browns.
  2. Add garlic, ginger and leek. Fry for 2 minutes.
  3. Add carrots, potatoes and red capsicum. Fry for 5 minutes.
  4. Add tomatoes and water.
  5. Once the vegetables are cooked, add 5 spice powder and salt.
  6. Serve the saozi by pouring it on boiled noodles.
