Sam Jup Mien - Three Sauce Noodle

This is a dish I grew up eating and loving in Chinatown, NY. It's not on the menu in many restaurants but you can ask for it and they will make it for you. I never really thought about what the 3 sauces were. I've made my own version many times but when I researched what the 3 sauces are, I believe they are ketchup, hoisin and curry. In any case, this noodle is saucy, spicy and delicious. Onions, roast pork, tomatoes and curry come together with a flavorful smooth sauce served over thick noodles. Spicy and sweet. SO good!

When I really think about this combo of 3 sauces it really is a curry BBQ sauce! Ketchup and hoisin go perfectly together to make an Asian BBQ sauce. Add just curry powder for some heat and YUM!

No complicated steps in this dish. Just the way I like it! Make sure to make this dish after you make my char siu, roast pork.

Sam Jup Mien - Three Sauce Noodle

Ingredients (serves 4)

1 lb fresh wheat noodles

2 to 3 tablespoons curry powder

1 large yellow onion, sliced

1/4 pound roast pork, cut into slices

1 large tomato, cut into wedges

1/2 cup favorite stock or water

1/2 cup ketchup

2 teaspoons hoisin sauce

1/2 teaspoon salt


Bring a medium to large stockpot of water up to a boil. Follow package instructions to cook fresh noodles. Usually boiling for 3-5 minutes. Drain and set aside.

While the noodle water is coming up to a boil, heat up a large skillet over medium low heat. Add the curry powder and stir for a minute until the powder becomes fragrant. Increase the heat to medium high and add onions and stir for a minute. Add roast pork and tomato and stir one minute. Add water and cover for one minute. Uncover and add ketchup, hoisin sauce and salt. Stir to incorporate and to thicken sauce. If sauce is too thick, add another 1/4 cup water. Turn off heat and serve over cooked noodles OR you can add the drained noodles to the sauce, stir and serve together. Enjoy!
