dragon noodles

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.

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


  1. 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.)
  2. while the water is boiling, prepare the sauce. combine brown sugar, soy sauce, and sriracha in a small bowl. stir to combine.
  3. 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.)
  4. whisk your eggs and add to the melted butter. stir gently to cook through and turn off the heat when done.
  5. drain your noodles, and add them to the pan with the egg.
  6. add your sauce, and toss to combine.
  7. top with chopped cilantrogreen 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!
