Sesame Chow Mein Noodles


12oz Thin Egg Noodles (I use Prime Food, Thin Egg Noodle - I find my noodles in the refrigerated noodle section at Pacific Ocean Marketplace)

1c Shredded Carrot

1c Green Onions, including whites, thinly sliced

1 1/2c Bean Sprouts

6 Cloves Garlic, minced

1/3c Soy Sauce

1t Brown Sugar

2T Sesame Oil

2T Vegetable Oil


1. Cook noodles according to package directions, when finished, toss with a little sesame oil, to prevent noodles from sticking

2. Meanwhile, heat 2T vegetable oil in large skillet, over medium high heat. Once oil is hot, add 2T sesame oil

3. Add noodles to skillet, let sit for 30 seconds, turning noodles with tongs frequently

4. Cook until noodles start browning, approximately 5 minutes or so

5. Once noodles reach a slightly crispy texture, add shredded carrot, cook 1 minute until carrots start turning soft

6. Add green onions to skillet

7. Mix 1/3c soy sauce, brown sugar, and garlic in small bowl and add to pan. Cook an additional minute, until soy sauce has been incorporated into the noodles. You should be able to smell the soy sauce and brown sugar caramelizing

8. Turn off heat, leaving skillet on burner and add in bean sprouts. Cook until sprouts start turning translucent

Garnish with sesame seeds and additional green onion

Makes approximately 2-4 servings
