Turn your kitchen into a hand-pulled noodle shop.

Ready to turn your kitchen into a noodle shop? In this video, Cook’s Science test cook Tim Chin shows you how to make chewy, flat, hand-pulled noodles at home. Their traditional name—biang biang mian—refers to the sound made when the noodles are slapped against a table to stretch them. These noodles are dressed with a simple Sichuan-inspired chili oil vinaigrette, but once you master the technique, the possibilities for different noodle dishes are virtually endless.
