sauce was awesome! Easy and fun to make. Really salty. So would suggest rice noodles or pass on the ramen seasoning. We added mushroom which was perfect. Will prob try again with chicken.
We enjoyed this sauce. It was great with the beef and asparagus. I will use rice next time because we didn't care much for the ramen noodles.
Prep time is definitely longer than 10 min unless you are very skilled with a knife, but it is well worth the effort. Just enough kick from the red pepper flakes, and a really nice flavor. I've never added sesame seeds to a stir fry before, but they were an excellent finishing touch.
