Asian Noodles (recipe)

Ingredients:

  • Whole packet of whole-wheat spaghetti (cooked)
  • Chopped green onions
  • Sesame seeds
  • Black seeds (do not put too much or it will be bitter)
  • Brown sugar (1 tblsp)
  • TJ Island Soyaki Sauce
  • Chili garlic sauce (depending how hot you want it)
  • Shredded ginger (be generous here)
  • 1 squeezed orange 
  • Chopped cilantro
  • Smashed! garlic (4-5 cloves)
  • few spoons of oil
  • Sliced top sirloin in slivers (make sure to slice against the grain)

Yes I know it’s weird to use spaghetti for an Asian dish but it tastes really great and it doesn’t feel so unusual.  The sesame seeds adds great texture and crunch.

I know some of you may not have Trader Joe’s so when I get the sauce, I’ll list the ingredients so you can still make this dish.  I apologize: I ran out as I was making the noodles and forgot to save the bottle!

  1. You can marinate the sliced meat overnight or for a few hours or just 10 minutes before cooking (like I actually did, ha) but I am sure it would have a lot more flavor if I did.  So add the TJ Soyaki Sauce until it coats all the meat pieces, add the ginger (make sure to add a lot, it makes is taste so much better) and the smashed! garlic.
  2. Heat the pan with oil and when it becomes hot enough throw in the meat and cook them until they are done.
  3. So sorry to not list the rest of the ingredients here (lazy cook and writer, sorry!) and add those in with the meat and mix well (except the noodles, oops, spaghetti).  Maybe have this on for about 10 minutes.
  4.  Then mix the spaghetti and make sure everything is coated and covered well.  Turn off heat.
  5. Of course you can adjust the flavorings to your liking (add/less ginger, more sauce, more/less orange juice…you get it.)
  6. Serve and garnish with black and white sesame seeds.

Enjoy!  Black seeds are blessed
