A couple of weeks ago, I was watching John Torode's Asia on NatGeo, it featured a recipe called Duck & Noodle Soup. I tried and found out that it's not that tasty, so I made a couple of improvements to make it better. Here's my improved recipe for you, hope you like it.

Peking duck noodle soup

Write a short description of your recipe


  • Noodles
  • Peking roast duck
  • 4~5 Green onions
  • 4~5 coriander
  • 8 peppercorns
  • Garlic
  • Chili
  • 2 teaspoons of salt
  • Shaoxing huangjiu (rice wine)
  • Star anise
  • 1 tablespoon of sesame oil
  • 1.5L water


Soup base

  1. Add 1.5L water into the pot, boil it using small fire
  2. Cut green onions in half, put the halves with roots into water after it boils
  3. Then do the same with coriander
  4. Cut out some duck breast, then put the rest of Peking duck into the pot
  5. Add some dry chili
  6. Add 3 tablespoons of rice wine
  7. Add some star anise
  8. Leave it with small fire for about 30 min

While the soup is boiling…

  1. Cook the noodles with nothing but a bit of salt
  2. After 25 min of boiling ,add about 8 peppercorns to the pot (I mean the pot with soup, not noodles)
  3. Add some garlic to the soup pot

Almost done!

  1. Put the cooked noodles into a bowl
  2. Put some sliced green onion and coriander on its top
  3. Put sliced duck breast on top
  4. Now back to the soup pot, add 1 tablespoon of sesame oil
  5. Add 2 teaspoons of salt
  6. Add some soup into the noodles
  7. And enjoy!

Recipe Notes

1. If you can't find Peking duck, then any kind of cooked duck are okay 2. Handmade noodles would be better 3. If you can't find Shaoxing huangjiu, you can use soy sauce or sherry

  • No peking duck and just finding duck can be a challenge. 😞

  • I can't add times! It should be “Prep 10 min, Cook 30 min, Total < 1 hr”
