I served this with grilled Garlic Peppercorn steak (McCormick Grillmates) and raw cucumber. The coolness of the cucumber was so refreshing with these spicy dishes! We used 1 tsp of the hot chili oil. Note that there is no error in the recipe, as one reviewer states. If you look at the blog post about Simple Sesame Noodles on Pioneer Woman's website, it does indeed say pure sesame oil, with a photo of the pure sesame oil bottle.
