Spicy Peanut Noodles are one of those quick fix comfort dishes during the week.
A fake out-take out favorite.
My favorite Spicy Peanut Noodles are from Mama Ji’s in San Francisco, I would order them almost weekly. But since Mama Ji’s is 1,000 miles away, I have to make my own. They served them cold with cucumber, carrot, and sauteed ground pork. I highly suggest trying it this way. But this dish is just as good warm, room temperature, or cold out of the fridge.
Sambal Chili Garlic paste is my favorite Asian condiment mix in. You can make this as spicy as you want or as little. Just be warned, you can always add more spice but you can never take it out.
Add grilled chicken or ground pork. Garnish with fresh lime, shredded carrots, cucumber, chopped peanuts, and green onion. Your preference.
An easy weeknight meal that will become a weekly standby.
