i am so thankful for the internet for many reasons, but mainly because it helped me discover this crazy addictive eat-the-leftovers-at-midnight kind of recipe. as soon as i made this, i knew it would become a frequent flyer in my kitchen. i have it memorized by this point.
if you’re not a fan of spicy things, go light on the sriracha. but for those spice lovers out there, this is the recipe for you.
dragon noodles | source: adapted from budgetbytes
ingredients | serves two full bowls (as seen above)
- 8oz noodles (you can use lo mein, rice noodles, egg noodles, linguine - whatever you have on hand. i prefer lo mein but have used linguine when i've had it on hand!)
- 2 tbsp butter
- 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)
- 2 eggs
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
- 1 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tbsp sriracha
- chopped cilantro (for those cilantro haters, you can skip this - it’s just as good without)
- chopped green onions
- sesame seeds
- boil water for your noodles. when water reaches a rolling boil, salt the water with salt (to taste) and lower your noodles. stir, and let cook for 5-7 minutes (or until done.)
- while the water is boiling, prepare the sauce. combine brown sugar, soy sauce, and sriracha in a small bowl. stir to combine.
- while the noodles cook, melt butter in a pan over medium heat. add yourred pepper flakes to the butter as it melts. (do this if you want a little extra kick.)
- whisk your eggs and add to the melted butter. stir gently to cook through and turn off the heat when done.
- drain your noodles, and add them to the pan with the egg.
- add your sauce, and toss to combine.
- top with chopped cilantro, green onion, and sesame seeds.
you might want to go ahead and plan to make a double recipe - if you make it once, i guarantee you’ll crave it a couple days later.
til next time!
