Southeast Asian Peanut Noodles

Angel Slave


For authentic flavor, I use sambal oelek (a mixture made of chiles, brown sugar, & salt found in most ethnic groceries) in place of hot chili sauce.

At the Oriental grocer I purchase 1 8 oz package of flat rice stick noodles (buckwheat if available)

1 (8oz) pkg
flat rice stick noodles
1/4 c
low-sodium teriyaki sauce
4 Tbsp
peanut butter, crunchy
1/4 tsp
hot chili sauce (oriental)
2 tsp
sesame oil
6 clove
garlic, minced (@ 2 tbl)
2 Tbsp
fresh ginger, minced
4 c
snow peas, trimmed
1 8 oz pkg
seasoned baked tofu, drained, cut into 3/4' cubes
1/3 c
chopped cilantro
1 c
chopped dry-roasted peanuts
lime wedges, for garnish


1Basic Stir-Fry Cooking Principle:
Preheat the skillet or pan on the stove (medium-high heat should work) for 3-4 minutes BEFORE adding the oil. This will allow the skillet the heat evwenly and keep food from sticking and burning
2I am laying out the directions as though no one has access to the cooking condiment sambal oelick (the mix made of chiles, brown sugar, and salt). Those who have it - please use to the heat on this condiment is super high for many
3Bring 6 cups of water to a boil in a non stick skillet (large wok - or spaghetti pot. Aded noodles stir to separate then cover and remove from heat. Let stand 6 minutes to soften. Drain & set aside.
4Whisk together teriyaki sauce, 2 TBS hot water, PB & chill sauce in a small bowl.
5If using a wok - now is the time to wipe it out,add sesame oil, and heat over medium-high heat. Add garlic and ginger, and stir fry 30 seconds. Add snow peas and fry for 3 minutes. Add tofu, and stir-fry 1 minute. Add teriyaki mixture and cook 2 minutes, or until sauce thickens, stirring occasionally.
6Add noodles, and gently toss with fork 2-3 minutes, or until noodles are coated with sauce and heated through. Sprinkle with cilantro and peanuts.
7Serve hot with lime wedges
