Ba Mee Moo Dang

The sauce consists of 4 components: chili, oil, vinegar and other condiments such as soy sauce and pepper. The chili is made from various ingredients and its preparation often includes frying and blending. Oil, traditionally lard, ensures a smooth texture in the noodles, although vegetable oil is sometimes used as a healthier though less tasty version. Vinegar is added for its sourness, and diners may specify how much vinegar is used.Mee pok is a staple commonly offered in hawker centres and coffee shops (Kopitiams in parts of Southeast Asia) in Singapore, together with other Chinese noodle dishes.

Hawkers often toss the noodles vigorously to remove excess flour and soda and to separate noodles which have stuck together. Other processes include stretching the noodles, cutting into a desired length, and separating into serving portions.
Usually, the noodles are factory-made, and requires substantial preparation before cooking. Different hawkers prepare and cook their noodles differently, but the desired outcome is the same: springy al dente noodles.This version of mee pok is usually served with toppings of fish balls, sliced fish cakes, geow (a type of small dumpling made with fish meat paste wrapping a small bit of minced meat), minced meat, meat balls, lettuce or taugeh (beansprouts in Hokkien). It can be made with the addition or omission of any of the toppings, prepared in soup or “dry” style, and either with or without the chili sauce.

Bak chor mee (simplified Chinese: 肉脞面; traditional Chinese: 肉脞麵; pinyin: ròucuǒ miàn; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: bah-chhò-mī), which translates to minced meat noodles, is a Singaporean noodle dish popularly sold as street food in hawker centers and food courts. The noodles are tossed in vinegar, minced meat, pork slices, pork liver, stewed sliced mushrooms, meat balls and bits of deep-fried lard. Bak chor mee can be categorised into two variants: a dry version and a soup version. Most dry versions come with slices of stewed mushroom, minced pork, slices of lean pork and sometimes fried ikan bilis, atop noodles tossed in a punchy chilli-vinegar sauce, while soup versions are lauded for the depth of pork flavour in its broth. Singapore’s bak chor mee was listed as the top world street food by World Street Food Congress.
The cooking process of the noodles consists of blanching in hot and cold water multiple times, though some hawkers omit the cold water. The noodles are drained and placed in either sauce or broth. Mee pok is a Chinese noodle characterized by its flat and yellow appearance, varying in thickness and width. The dish is of Chaoshan origin and is commonly served in the Chaoshan region of China and countries with a significant Chaoshan Chinese immigrant population such as Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand. Mee pok is commonly served tossed in a sauce (often referred to as “dry”, or tah in Hokkien (Pe̍h-ōe-jī: ta)), though sometimes served in a soup (where it is referred to as “soup”, or terng). Meat and vegetables are added on top. The sauce in which the noodles are tossed in is a very important aspect of the dish, and is considered a representation of the cook’s skill and experience. The importance of the sauce in mee pok can be thought of similarly as the sauces that accompany pasta.Mee pok can be categorised into two variants, fish ball mee pok (yu wan mee pok), and mushroom minced meat mee pok (bak chor mee). Bak chor mee is usually prepared using thin noodles (“mee kia”) (widely known as wanton style noodles or youmian) or mee pok, while yu wan mee can also be prepared in both styles or other noodle varieties.

What is bak chor mee in english?
Bak chor mee (simplified Chinese: 肉脞面; traditional Chinese: 肉脞麵; pinyin: ròucuǒ miàn; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: bah-chhò-mī), which translates to minced meat noodles, is a Singaporean noodle dish popularly sold as street food in hawker centers and food courts.
Soup is served in a bowl as a side dish accompanying the “dry” variant, or served together with the noodles for the “soup” version where the sauce is omitted. Traditionally, the soup is boiled and simmered overnight with old hen, pork bones, dried sole fish, and soybean. The resulting broth is rich in taste and cloudy in appearance.Your neighborhood Thai style pork, crispy pork belly, rice, and noodle joint. Simply driven by the desire to share the cooking of our youth. Khao Moo-Dang is a tribute to the everyday comfort food of Thailand. We aim to faithfully represent the pork based dishes found on every street in Bangkok.

We are a locally owned restaurant with a commitment to buy produces from local vendors and organizations.

Instead of the broth, the steaming noodles get tossed in a flavourful seasoning sauce, but they are still topped with the same yummy toppings of your favourite noodle soup. All my recipes come with step-by-step video tutorials with extra tips not mentioned in the blog post, so make sure you watch the video below to ensure success – and if you enjoy the show, please consider subscribing to my YouTube channel. Thank you!Sawaddee ka! I’m Pai, a chef, author, and YouTuber. I’m here to demystify Thai cuisine and help you cook great Thai food at home. Want to learn more about me? Here’s my story.Blanch the noodles until cooked through (this takes less than 1 minute if using the wonton noodles), drain the noodles well and place them directly into the seasoning bowl. Immediately toss the noodles in the seasoning, be very thorough with the tossing to make sure the sauce is evenly absorbed. Place noodles in a serving bowl. Boil the wontons, if using, until they are fully cooked. Remove with a skimmer and place in a bowl. Toss with a bit of garlic oil to prevent them from sticking to each other. In this video, I’m showing you a recipe for “Bamee Hang” which is one of the most popular types that people order dry. And now that there’s no broth to worry about, it is SO much faster to put together as you’ll see! In this video I used Chinese BBQ pork and wontons as my protein which is very common, but you can just do one or the other as well!Place the pork, wonton, and bok choy around the noodles and top with fried garlic, white pepper, chili powder, and chopped cilantro and/or green onions. Serve immediately, enjoy!

All the components of the recipe can be homemade, or none. I’ve done it in all the combinations. But the only thing not to be missed is the sauce ratio here, including homemade garlic chips & garlic oil.
When the water’s at boiling point, drop in the noodles- if you use fresh they won’t take long- 2/3 minutes should do it. Quickly scoop them out of the water and toss the noodles in the garlic oil so they won’t stick. Throw the green veggies into the leftover boiling water and blanch for a minute (no more) before draining.Back to the pork. Although not advised, I do prefer my pork to be slightly pink on the inside so if you want it fully cooked, allow 5-10 minutes more. Leave it to rest and cool down for a bit then cut the loin into equal slices- about 6-8mm is perfect if you want to be specific.

If I’m honest, I’ve always been more of a fan of egg noodles than wide rice noodles which is unfortunate since rice noodles are much more common in Thai food than egg noodles which originate from China. So this Chinese influenced dish is one that makes me very happy.
Begin by marinating the pork loin in a bowl in the mix of light and dark soy and 5 spice. Let it marinate for an hour then lift the loin out, placing on a baking tray and cook in the oven at 160 degrees celsius for around 20 mins. Use your discretion, if you’ve used a very large large loin, it may take longer. Plate everything up- flavoured noodles, a few slices of pork, some of the vegetables and pour over a generous splash of the sauce. Give the noodles a good mix and eat alongside a few stalks of coriander. Hello there! We take your privacy seriously, and want to be as transparent as possible.

It’s another classic street food dish and as ever, with all Thai street food and especially with noodles, it’s fully expected that you will want to add your own flavourings to the finished dish. Just a note regarding the colour- I’m not a fan of artificial colouring and as such, the red on the pork is much more subtle than some luminous versions you can find that use food colouring to achieve a bright red shade.If this sounds good to you, select \”I Agree!\” below.

While the pork cooks make the sauce; mix the vinegar, fish sauce and chillies. Also make the garlic oil; heat the oil and when medium hot, fry off the chopped garlic- only lightly as it’s more to flavour the oil. Get a large pan of water on the boil.
I don’t own a meat thermometer, which is very amateurish, because I need one. So, I experimented by roasting a smaller piece first, because I didn’t want to ruin the whole thing by overcooking it. I started with 400 deg F for 24 minutes. It was good, but seemed a bit dry and fibrous. So, I cooked the rest at 400 deg F for 21 minutes. This turned out to be the perfect temperature and time for me, and looked just like the result in Pai’s video: Same texture and taste.This is a lot like the lemongrass pork recipe, isn’t it? I mean both have five-spice powder which is the dominating taste aspect. One has lemongrass and this has tao jiew.Chinese style char siu typically uses port butt or pork shoulder, which works fine for this, however the Thai style is leaner and we like to use pork loin. This works because there’s gravy to keep the dish moist even though the meat is lean.

Are rice noodles healthier than egg noodles?
Rice noodles are lower in calories, fat, and protein than egg noodles. They also have more carbohydrates. One cup of cooked rice noodles made with white rice has about 193 calories, 0.4 grams of fat, 43.8 grams of carbohydrates, 1.8 grams of fiber, and 1.6 grams of protein.
If you can, get the fatty end. When I went to get my pork from the specialty butcher, he was cutting my roast from a whole piece and asked if I wanted the “lean and pretty end” or the “fatty end”. Turns out the two sides of a pork loin are different! Either will work depending on whether you like fatty or lean meat, but it’s nice to have the option! I got the fatty end, naturally.

Is it OK to eat rice noodles everyday?
Rice noodles are naturally low in sodium. While this mineral is an essential nutrient and electrolyte, excess intake may harm your health and increase your risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, and kidney disease ( 10 , 11 , 12 , 13 ).
…p.s. A quick technique to remove all the “scum” after initially boiling the pork or chicken stock with the pork marinade, is to use a large sieve, then pour the boiling mixture through the sieve and into a large bowl. Then pour the contents of the large bowl back into the cooking utensil and continue.

What is moo in English language?
intransitive verb. : to make the throat noise of a cow.
I’m a Hongkonger who loves Thai food, so I’ve tried both of Pailin’s Char Siu recipes, Chinese and Thai style. Personally I love the gravy of the Thai one but the pork of the Chinese one, so I’d recommend you try both as well.This is fantastic recipe, and my new favorite way to cook pork. I cut a good quality pork loin roast into portions. I made a mistake for half of it, and cut it against the grain (to resemble pork chops). Then I went back to watch the video, because I thought I’d made a mistake, and learned Pai cuts portions lengthwise WITH the grain. The half I cut that way seemed to work out a little better. So, remember to cut lengthwise, as Pai says, so you end up with long strands in each section. (Not that big of a deal if you forget or screw up the cut. It will still turn out awesome.)

Here are some ingredients you may not have and how to substitute. You can also watch my video where I explain all the different sauces used in Thai cooking.
But we all know it’s impossible to correct an overcooking mistake once it’s been made. So, for most any meat recipe from any source, I usually back off by at least 10% with the cooking time, and that practice has always served me well.

What does Mu Daeng mean in Thai?
AL on Twitter: “Mu (มุ/หมู) is a shortened form of EITHER MuMu(มุมุ=kiss) or Mu daeng(หมูแดง = roasted red pork), but most of the time could be from mu daeng, its how we call freen and she calls herself too but the origin is the makeup artist who called her that since gap EX: mu is sick today” / Twitter.
Yes. The recipe I show you here is the closest to what a Thai street vendor would make, and it is also a bit simpler. But if you already have your own trusted char siu recipe, or you’ve made my super popular authentic Cantonese style char siu recipe, each will work just as well. All of these styles have the same flavour profile, just slightly different ingredients. This dish is the epitome of “Thai street food”. If you wanted kao moo dang you can walk into any food court and you’re guaranteed to find a vendor. At the basic level it’s just Chinese BBQ pork (char siu) on rice, but what makes this dish unique to Thailand is the savoury-sweet gravy studded with roasted sesame seeds. How about pork chops? If you can’t find pork loin roast, pork chops will work but you want to make sure they are at least 1-inch thick. The pork needs time to brown and char slightly without overcooking the inside.

Buy a pork loin roast (pic shown in the video), then cut it lengthwise with the grain into long strips about 2″x1″ in diameter. Try to cut it in such a way that each piece has a bit of fat on it, because this fat will help keep everything moist and tender.
Made this today, well started two days ago with the marinade! I’m English and my wife is Thai. I knew it was a success when I saw the biggest of smiles on my wife’s face. Easy to follow recipe, would recommend it to everyone. Aroy mak mak.

…and let me also say, that my cut section were smaller than Pai’s, because I screwed it up. These smaller portions, with more square inches exposed to heat, likely contributed to the reason reduced cooking times worked out better for me. If you cut the meat like Pai did, something closer to her recommended 30 – 35 minutes may work out better.
This chicken bbq pork & rice is absolutely delicious and very flavorful! I added a bit of Mee Ploy Sweet Chili sauce that I bought from Karman Foods for a more perfect finish. I recommend backing off on the time if you don’t have a meat thermometer. 21 minutes at 400 deg F was perfect for me. Then let it rest for at least 10 min before cutting into it. Oh my god! This brought me right back to my childhood. I probably ate this once a week growing up in Southern Thailand. And you just blew my mind, why haven’t I tried making this before. Thank you for making this recipe. I am Thai and your youtube channel has been my go to whenever I want to make a perfect dish or impress my American friends.

But just after taking my first bite of noodles at Uan Bamee Giew (อ้วน บะหมี่เกี๊ยว (กวางตุ้ง) I could tell the quality of the noodles – and it makes all the difference in the world.

As you can expect, the noodles did have a bit of a greener taste to them, but very similar, and that same wonderful home-made noodle taste and texture.
A few of us hunted down this stall and I must say it’s a good recommendation! Simple good quality noodle, freshly made with care. Comfort food we can eat everyday. We especially liked that delicious soup served with that big piece of bone. Two thumbs up!After finishing off my first bowl of egg noodles, I decided to go for a bowl of giew nam moo daeng nam (เกี๊ยวน้ำหมูแดงน้ำ), just won ton dumplings with all the toppings in soup. But another variation of the typical yellow egg noodles is bamee yok (บะหมี่หยก), egg noodles that are prepared with some kind of green vegetable juice (I think kailan or some kind of spinach), to make them green in color. Alternatively I could have ordered bamee giew moo daeng nam (บะหมี่เกี๊ยวหมูแดงน้ำ), which would have been the same mixture of ingredients and toppings, but with soup within the bowl, as opposed to soup on the side in a separate bowl.How to get there: Uan Bamee Giew (อ้วน บะหมี่เกี๊ยว (กวางตุ้ง) is located on Thanon Pradipat. You can take the BTS to Saphan Kwai station, Exit #1, walk to Pradipat, cross to the opposite side and make a right, and the stall is just after Soi 20.

I could tell right away that the owner of the restaurant took pride in his cooking, as he pulled out a handful of freshly prepared egg noodles and tossed them into the boiling water.
There’s no menu at this street food stall, but you just have a few choices of what to order, mainly their specialty of egg noodles and won ton dumplings or green noodles (more below).

What is moo dang in english?
“Kao Moo Dang” literally means “red pork with rice” in Thai. “Red pork” is what we call Chinese BBQ pork (char siu).
Along with the egg noodles he added in some of the choy sum, a couple of won ton, slices of red bbq pork, a few slices of fish cake, some crispy pork skins, and just a very light seasoning of deep fried fragrant garlic and oil. Uan Bamee Giew (อ้วน บะหมี่เกี๊ยว (กวางตุ้ง) is a Bangkok street food stall located at Saphan Kwai that serves excellent egg noodles and won ton dumplings. One evening, right around 5 pm, when all the street food stalls were just rolling out their carts to the side of the road, Ying and I were in the area, and we decided to check out Uan Bamee Giew (อ้วน บะหมี่เกี๊ยว (กวางตุ้ง), a stall serving egg noodles and dumplings.The freshly made and cooked egg noodles, and the dumpling, were the highlight of eating here, and all the other toppings were just an extra delicious bonus.

Again, I seasoned it with some dry chili flakes and vinegar. The dumpings were awesome, I loved them, and then all the pieces of pork and toppings were good as well.The toppings were all really good too. The choy sum was nice and fresh, and nearly had a spinach texture, and the slices of red bbq pork (หมูแดง – the Thai version of char siu), was really good. Again, sometimes Thai red pork is way too sweet and has no flavor. But this was excellent and not too sweet.

In addition to the noodles, the won ton dumplings, which were mostly filled with a mixture of minced pork I believe, were fantastic. They had a nice sesame oil fragrance, and the inside mixture was so soft and tender, it almost completely blended into the noodle wrapper.
We arrived to Uan Bamee Giew (อ้วน บะหมี่เกี๊ยว (กวางตุ้ง) just a few minutes before 5 pm, and we were the first to grab a table right next to the stall, and we were the first to order!Hey, you’re welcome, thank you for reading. Wow, ok that makes much more sense, I totally made a mistake about that. Thank you for the correction and information, really appreciate it! I’ll get that changed.

It was wonderfully rich and porky, yet not too oily. It was nice and salty, not sweet like it occasionally is in Thailand, and it had perhaps just a very light pepper and green onion touch.
Oh wow,here in Manchester my mouth is watering,,,thanks Mark for sending me info,can’t wait to try all these noodles and dumplings.Printed the words out,so I can show the stall holder,but how do you pronounce the word Giew please …In Thai, uan (อ้วน) means “fat,” – and so just like the legendary kuay jab stall in Yaowarat, it’s likely that the stall was named after someone (the owner or a family member), who was at some point in their life, a little on the chubby side.

Sliced layers of tender chicken are placed over the top of the rice with a small bowl of chicken broth also served as part of the meal. The sauce is what can make or break a good khao man gai.

After you drain the noodles, they’re ready to eat. You don’t need to cook them any further, though some recipes may call for quick flash-frying in a pan.
In the first episode of the noodles series I explained to you what Ba Mee is. It’s simply egg noodles. If you can’t find them in your city, you can always make your own. I have a recipe here in the same post with the fresh pasta, the oodles of noodles. The different between fresh pasta and egg noodles is the alkaline in the egg noodles and the time you “ripen” them. You need to ripen the egg noodles for at the least one night to get the right noodle texture. Two to three nights will make them perfect, bouncy and stretchy.wait until the water is at full boil and drop one serving portion of the noodles in, stirring constantly, then wait until the water reaches a boil again, lift the noodles out of the water and drop them in cold water and stir just briefly. Take them out and put them in a large slotted spoon and dunk them back in the boiling water—just a flash so the noodles will be hot on the outside but stop the cooking of the inside.

The vegetable used in all Ba Mee Moo Dang in Thailand is called Choy Sum or You-Choy. You can read about it here. It’s not as popular as Napa cabbage or Bok-Choy in the U.S. You have to really go to the Chinese market to get it. If you can’t find it you can use Bok-Choy, which is more popular and you can easily find it in the regular market. I like the crunchy earthy bitterness of Choy Sum more than the bland taste of Bok-Choy, so I make the effort to go to the market and get it.
2) Wait until the water in the pot reaches a boil and drop just one portion of the vegetables in, stirring constantly until the water reaches a boil again. Use a large slotted spoon to scoop all the vegetables out and drop them in the cold water—just a flash to stop them cooking. This way the vegetables will stay green and will not turn brown. You will be doing each serving separately, both the noodles and the vegetables.I haven’t written about Thai noodles for a long while because it’s getting hot here in Manhattan Beach and I don’t want to eat noodles as much as in winter time. However, I recently made Moo Dang, the Thai barbecue pork, which is an important ingredient in a very popular noodle dish in Thailand, Ba Mee Moo Dang, so I thought I might as well blog about it.

There is a very critical accompaniment that I can’t ignore. It’s the golden fried garlic in oil called Kratiam Jeaw. The reason that this is so special to me is because I get to fry the garlic in pork fat with bits of crispy pork fat pieces in it. You can see how it was made here in Episode II of the noodles series.
5) Add the Barbecue pork, wontons, crab, cilantro, green onion and all other condiments, toss and taste it. You can adjust the taste to your preference. Repeat the whole process for each serving. Ba Mee Moo Dang is one of the top five most popular noodles dishes in Thailand. I guarantee that you can find it at every open-air market. It can be sold on a food cart or in a restaurant. You can identify the vendor by looking for the strips of red barbecue pork hanging in a glass case and a pile of yellow noodles. There are two types of noodle servings, as always: the salad style,”hang,” the dry noodles with no soup, and the soup style, ”naam”. I didn’t make the soup kind this time because it’s so hot and I didn’t want to eat hot soup noodles. If you want to make Ba Mee Moo Dang with soup, you can go back to see how I make soup for Guay Tiew Moo, the pork noodles, and you can use the same soup for Ba Mee Moo Dang, too.This type of noodles is not supposed to have a lot of condiments like all the others do, so the flavor of pork fat is going to be pronounced and really make the difference to the overall dish. I strongly recommend trying it at least once. You can get pork belly at the market. Normally they’ve already gotten rid off the skin for you, so just cut them all up and fry over medium heat just as you would cook bacon, making sure to collect all the oil to use to fry garlic later. The red barbecue pork is the same one I gave you the recipe for here. If you have the leftover pork from the Khao Moo Dang, you can use it to make Ba Mee Moo Dang, too. Typical noodles with Moo Dang are going to have an option of adding on crabmeat, pronounced Pu in Thai (or Poo but I don’t want to spell it that way for the obvious reason), Background KaengKradang or Kaeng Mu Kradang is usually cooked with pig’s leg which makes the curry thick and jelly. KaengKradang has two recipes: Chiang Mai’s and Chiang Rai’s. Chiang Rai’s menu is cooked by adding the chili paste while boiling the pig’s leg.
