Sesame Noodles

"This is one of the most popular recipes I've ever made! From kid's to old folks everyone loves these noodles. Add some spicy "Rooster sauce" and more ginger to give it even more flavor. I have now adjusted my original recipe post (9/07). Apparently an employee had written the recipe down incorrectly cause I never measured. It's a really easy dish to make for pot luck's etc. Toast your sesame seeds if they haven't already been toasted for better flavor. Almost all of the ingredients are available at any Oriental Market and most regular grocery stores. You can add other ingredients to make it a whole meal. --Please note-- the soy sauce amount was incorrect in this recipe! I have now changed it! Add more if you like."

  1. I loved these sesame noodles. They were quick and easy to make with great results. The noodles were so flavorful. I let them sit over night in the fridge, that was the hard part. Then enjoyed them for lunch the next day. They had a great flavor. Made exactly as written and wouldn't change a thing. I love that you can use any kind of long noodle and it works perfectly. Thanks so much for sharing a recipe that I will indulge in often. Made for What's on the Menu? Tag Game.
  2. This is DS's favorite way to enjoy Asian noodles. He can't get enough of this and asks me to make it often. I love how simple it is to prepare, but tastes like so much more. Thank you for sharing with favorite in our house.
  3. I made this using chow mein noodles and combined it with the recipe on the box by adding 1/2 c chicken broth to it. The broth made it way too soupy, however. I also subbed powdered ginger for fresh. It was an ok recipe (soupy with the broth). The flavor was ok, but different. My kids didn't want the leftovers.
  4. good recipe - <br/>i made it exactly according to the recipe the first time - but it was a little too salty for me. the next time, i used way less soy sauce and it was great. <br/>i also added juice from half a lemon and about a tablespoon of honey to the sauce.<br/>thanks for posting this.
  5. I made this tonight and we all loved it ( 6 y/o son, hubby and I). I more or less eyeballed the ingredients. I added a little (like 1/2 tsp) garlic chilli paste and hubby added more at the table.


  1. These were fantastic! I made enough for me, no leftovers. I just kinda eye-balled everything. How simple of a dish is this? Sometimes, its nice to have a no-brainer go to for supper. I like the idea others have had about adding some meat. So versatile, and so good. I couldn't find black sesame seeds, so I used regular, but I toasted mine. That gives it another layer of flavor. I also used red pepper flakes instead of cayenne, just a preference thing, and it does need that little kick of heat in it. Next time, I'm going to add a little garlic in, too. Thanks sassafrassnanc, for adding a great recipe to my collection.
