Ingredients

1 tsp black peppercorns 

¼ tsp Sichuan peppercorns 

4 tbsp unsalted butter 

200g (7 oz) fresh Chinese egg noodles 

1 cup finely grated pecorino 

Steps
  • Step 1

    Toast the peppercorns in a dry frying pan for a minute or until fragrant. Use a mortar and pestle to grind to a fine powder.

    Melt half the butter in large pan. Add the ground pepper and cook for a minute. Turn off the heat. 

  • Step 3

    Cook the noodles in boiling salted water for a minute or until just al dente. Reserve 1 cup of the noodle cooking water and drain the noodles.
