COLD NOODLES IN SPICY PEANUT SAUCE
COLD-NOODLES - Mildly spicy cold noodles
I first had this at Brandy Ho's in Chinatown, San Francicso.
I forget where I found the recipe.
INGREDIENTS (Serves 4)
2 Tbsp fresh garlic, minced
3 Tbsp fresh coriander, minced
1/2 cup peanut butter
5 oz light soy sauce
5 Tbsp sugar
1/2-3 tsp rice wine
1-2 Tbsp hot bean paste
1 Tbsp sesame oil
1 lb lo mein noodles (other noodles will do, such as
ramen noodles or even spagetti).
(1) Cook the lo mein according to directions. Let
(2) Mix the rest of the ingredients. Peanut butter
doesn't mix very well, so for a few minutes you'll
think you've made a mistake. Don't worry, just
keep stirring until it's smooth.
(3) Add the sauce to the noodles.
Hot bean sauce also goes by the name Szechuan bean sauce
etc. This is the main "spicy" ingredient and should be han-
dled with care. Vary this ingredient to taste. This recipe
is probably very good without it. It's also quite good
served when the noodles are still hot.
Difficulty: easy. Time: 10 minutes preparation, 5 minutes
cooking. Precision: no need to measure.
