Spicy Asian Noodles

A quick and easy recipe for Asian noodles that packs a big flavor punch.


  • 8 oz Chinese noodles
  • 2 tbsp peanut oil
  • 1 tbsp grated ginger
  • 2 scallions
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp Chinese black bean garlic sauce
  • 1 tbsp Chinese chili bean sauce
  • 1/2 lb ground pork
  • 1/8 tsp hot chili oil, optional


  • Cook noodles in boiling water according to package instructions. Remove from water when al dente and set aside, tossing with a dash of peanut oil.
  • Peel and mince the ginger (if using fresh ginger - see notes).
  • Chop scallions and separate into white and green parts.
  • Mix the sugar and bean sauces and set aside.
  • Heat wok (or large skillet) until a drop of water skitters across the surface. Add a tbsp of peanut oil, add the ginger, and stir fry until ginger is fragrant.
  • Add pork and white scallions and stir try until pork is no longer pink.
  • Add bean sauce/sugar mixture and cook and stir for about 2 minutes.
  • Add noodles and green scallions to the pan and toss until noodles are evenly coated with sauce.
  • Add chili oil (if desired), and toss again.


*If you can frozen cubes of fresh ginger at your store, it will make this recipe even quicker!
**You can omit the hot chili oil if you don't like things too spicy. 
***If you don't have peanut oil, you can substitute canola oil.
