Fire Breathing Dragon Noodles  

As prepared by Macheesmo

These noodles may look unassuming, but they pack a bit of a punch.

They might leave you breathing fire after you’re done with them!

If you like spicy food, these dragon noodles are the meal for you. And they only take about fifteen minutes to make—hard to beat that.

Since this meal cooks very quickly, it’s important to have all your ingredients ready to go before you start cooking.

Start by whisking your sugar, soy sauce, chili sauce, and vinegar together in a small bowl. This will be the sauce for the noodles. It’s pretty spicy, but it’s also the perfect balance of sour, salty, and sweet.


Sauce, vegetables, egg

Also, whisk your egg well so it’s ready to go when needed.


Egg whisked

You could use a lot of different noodles for this dish, but I like fresh udon noodles, which you should be able to find in the refrigerated section of your store. Any Asian grocery will carry them for sure, but I found mine in a normal grocery store.


Fresh noodles

If the noodles come with a spice packet of some sort, just toss it. We’re making our own seasonings!


Cook the noodles according to the packaging, which should only take a few minutes in boiling water. Drain them and set them aside.


Noodles cooked

Everything goes fast from here. Melt your butter in a medium nonstick skillet and once it’s melted, stir in your egg over medium heat.


Cook it until the egg is scrambled and almost cooked through.


Egg cooked

Then season the eggs with a pinch of red pepper flakes and add your sauce to skillet. It’ll sizzle and hiss.


Adding sauce

Then toss in your drained noodles and stir everything together to coat the noodles with the sauce. Do this all over the heat so the noodles reheat in the pan and the sauce reduces slightly as it cooks.


Noodles in pan

Serve this immediately with some fresh cilantro and chopped scallions.


Noodles finished

This recipe serves one person, but as you can imagine it’s very easy to double or even quadruple.


Become one with the dragon and give this noodle dish a try!

Nick is happy that he didn’t have to actually slay a dragon to make these. Be sure to check out his blog, Macheesmo, and follow him on his Tablespoon Profile.
