I saved this recipe a couple weeks ago for a night just like tonight where I needed a quick meal. I cooked some shrimp on the side and added it as well as mixing in a couple of shredded carrots to make sure the kids got some veggies. Ds10 asked if I could rate it 10 stars out of 5, I told him the best I could do was let you know his rating, this is the kid that doesn't care for peanut butter too ;). A perfect blend of seasonings. I did cut back quite a bit on the Samba Olek as my boys are not quite ready for the heat and just added more to mine as well as some crushed red pepper. Also forgot I was out of sesame seeds so added a wee bit extra sesame oil. Wonderful, easy and delicious meal. Thanks for posting Charmie :D!
We loved the flavor of these and very easy to throw together. I used rice vinegar and a chinese noodle that I think I let cook to long. Next time I will definately try it with the spagetti as I see now that it would hold up to the sauce better because of the peanut butter. I tossed in some veggies I had to use up that were steamed then flashed. My 2 year old loved the noodles. I switched out some Siracha for the Samba Olek just for more Thai flavor for the challange. Thanks Charmie another great recipe. Made for ZWT 6 The Countries of Asia Challange by a fellow Looney Spoon :)
So tasty Charmie, We enjoyed this today several other Asian recipes for ZWT#6; Asian Garlic Sauce, Szechuan Cucumbers and Salt and Pepper Prawns (Shrimp). I used half the amount of sambal oelek and crunchy peanut butter, as well as sprinkling some peanuts over the top on serving. Made for the Cheese and Whine Gang. Merci FT:-)
Oh my, these noodles are so good! I had a craving today so out of the blue I chose this recipe and I'm so glad I did! I did not use the honey but I did use a full tablespoon of the sambal oelek. I will definately make these again, and often! Made for ZWT6: No-Nonsense Nibblers.
Superior dish! This was just as delicious leftover and warmed as it was the day it was made. My 11-year-old proclaimed it the "best dinner ever". I used the exact ingredients as listed, since I had them all on hand (I make thai food alot!) but doubled the sauce as recommended by others and added chicken for the additional protein.
I will add a splash of fish sauce next time along with crushed peanuts at the end.
Made exactly as stated. We loved it!
This was a nice lunch to bring to work. I couldn't find rice wine vinegar in the store so I used rice vinegar instead. I also added chicken which definitely made the dish better. I did feel like it needed more chilli paste though so I brought that on the side in case I wanted to mix in more. Maybe next time I will use thicker Chinese noodles because it could hold the sauce better than spaghetti. Overall, pleased to attempt this!
Hum....I read the review with high hopes, but it wasn't good. Threw it away ...sorry but that's the truth
Used some leftover noodles and turned them into something new. I skipped the chili paste and honey, used a little Splenda Blend Brown Sugar. The adults seemed to like them more than the kids and grands, but that's OK. They can be very picky eaters. One suggested skip the sweet so might try that next time. Thank you for sharing!
