Uyghur Laghman Pulled Noodle Sauce

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Dienia B.

From a recipe request. The Uyghurs are from western China and they make their own pulled noodles. This is the sauce they put on top. You can use udon noodles or spagetti. They use garlic scrapes there; we are using spring onions. You could probably use garlic chives. this tastes awesome , it is not for the faint of heart though , its smokin hot lol

Pretty close to what I remember the Uygurs making and super good! I went with beef (for carne asada actually) and I had to substitute the star anise for 1/4 t Five Spice Powder. Also I thought 3/4 t of crushed red pepper was plenty for a good strong kick. Over all I am really excited to have this recipe- family loved it and it was as close as I have had in the US to authentic! Thanks!!
