Sesame Noodles

1 Lb Chinese Noodles

C Soy Sauce
C Sesame Oil
C Rice Wine Vinegar
C Sugar
2 TB Chili Oil
2 Tb Toasted Sesame Seeds
3-4 Ea Scallions, finely chopped

************************************************** **********

8-9 Oz Chinese Noodles
C Soy Sauce
C Sesame Oil
2 Tb Rice Wine Vinegar
2 Tb Sugar
1 Tb Chili Oil
1 Tb Toasted Sesame Seeds
2 Ea Scallions, finely chopped

Cook the noodles according to package directions.

While the water is coming to a boil, combine the soy sauce, sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, sugar and chili oil in a medium bowl. Whisk together and set aside.

When the noodles are cooked to your liking, drain the noodles in a colander, but do NOT rinse. Shake out excess water completely.

Transfer noodles to a low flat pan or tray*. Pour sauce mixture over hot noodles. Toss to coat evenly and continue to toss about every 5 minutes, until completely cool and all the sauce is absorbed by the noodles.

Transfer to a platter or bowl. Garnish with sesame seeds and green onions.

Serve at room temperature, or cover and refrigerate to serve cold.

*Note: tossing the noodles in a low wide dish will allow the noodles to absorb all the sauce much faster and easier.

The hot chili oil gives this dish a "subtle zippiness." For spicier palates, offer Srirachi Hot Chili Sauce on the side.

Thank you, Andy! These look great and I remember it got good reviews. I like that it doesn't have PB as an ingredient, many do and DH doesn't like PB.

I have TONS of spaghetti noodles. They were out of date and were going to be thrown away so DH snagged them and brought them home. You know those big tins of popcorn that sell during the holidays? They filled one of those plus some extra. I'm looking for other ways to serve them. Can they be used in this recipe or is there something about the lo mien noodles that make them best for this recipe.

You can use any shape of pasta and it will taste great.

Do you mean peanut butter? Some Asian recipes call for PB as a sub for sesame paste. However, this one is all oil. You can buy sesame paste in Asian markets so you don't have to sub PB.

P.S. I omit the sesame seeds as SO finds them annoying.
