Sauce Essentials: Awesome Asian Noodle Sauce

Andy Anderson !


I love a good Asian noodle sauce, so I am always playing about with novel mixtures of ingredients to produce a tasteful result. I think that is one of the fun aspects of cooking… all the experimentation.

This is a very tangy sauce with a just enough heat to let you know that it is there. I serve it over noodles, and eat them plain (it is that good of a sauce), or I might add some chicken, beef, pork, or fish; plus, veggies, and make it a whole meal.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

How to Make Sauce Essentials: Awesome Asian Noodle Sauce


  2. The heat in this recipe is controlled by two things: sriracha sauce, and red pepper flakes. If you want it hotter, add more… milder, add less.
  3. Gather your Ingredients (mise en place).
  4. Add all the ingredients together in a small saucepan, and bring to a simmer.
  5. Simmer and whisk for 5 – 7 minutes.
  6. Place in a glass container with a tight-fitting lid and place in the refrigerator overnight.
  7. Chef’s Note: The overnight stay in the fridge, will help the flavors blend together.
  9. When ready to use, warm up, and pour over noodles… then, if you want, add other stuff, like veggies, chicken, pork, beef. Whatever you fancy. Enjoy.
  10. Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
