Spicy Fried Noodles

Published: November 1, 2022

The best quick lunch recipe that only takes 20 minutes to make! I make this recipe several times a week because it’s so easy to throw together and I always have all the ingredients on hand. You can have the noodles on their own or add any toppings you want.

Recipe Notes:

Noodles: I like using these wide ramen noodles. I don’t know what they’re called I just found them in the Asian section of my grocery store one day. You can also use normal ramen noodles, which I have done many times before! My favourite brand is Shin Ramyun.

Broth: I like beef broth, but it would be good with any broth that you want. I have made this recipe with beef, chicken, and vegetable broth. My go to broth is GoBio Organic Bouillon Cubes.

Soy Sauce: If you use full sodium soy sauce for this recipe it’s going to be way too salty! I made this mistake before.

Garlic & Ginger: Fresh garlic & ginger make such a difference. You can leave ginger out if you don’t have any but it’s best not to skip the garlic!

Chili Garlic Sauce: I always use chili garlic sauce, but you can use siracha, chili oil, or crushed red pepper flakes instead. I actually used a little bit of chili oil to cook the garlic in too because I love it spicy.

Brown Sugar: You can use honey instead. I have made it with honey many times.

Oyster sauce: You can leave the oyster sauce out if you don’t have any, but I love the flavour it adds. I make this recipe without it all the time.

Toppings: You can serve these noodles without any toppings at all. My go to topping is a fried egg and avocado. Some other toppings that I love are kimchi, dried seaweed chips, or cilantro.
