Y’all, these are seriously the best sesame noodles and you can make them in less than 5 minutes. Plus, they are super cheap. Twenty-five cents per pack of ramen noodles and then I usually already have everything else already in my fridge and pantry.
I really would like to give credit where credit is due. I just can’t. I am sure that I saw the recipe on Pinterest, since that is my go to for new recipes, but I can’t find it.
The first time I made it was just for me and my husband. We both could not believe how delicious it tasted.
Seriously, these are all of the ingredients (plus the water to boil the noodles). 2 small saucepans are all you will need.
Our boys have this recipe saved on their phones and will make it for lunch frequently. The 2 boys that are still in high school will make it to pack to take to school for lunch the next day.
It is not hard to memorize the recipe and then you will find your own process to make it that works for you.
I put 4 cups of water in a saucepan and turn on the heat to start boiling. While the water is coming to a boil, I add the garlic and sesame oil to another small saucepan to heat until the garlic (I use the chopped garlic in a jar) starts to turn golden. When the water starts to boil I throw in the 2 hard bricks of ramen noodles (throw away that nasty sodium flavor packet that comes with the ramen) and boil for 3 minutes. Once I do this, it is time to remove the sesame oil and garlic from the heat. Stir in Siracha (if you don’t like heat, don’t use 2 teaspoons), brown sugar, and low sodium soy sauce. By now the noodles will be done and you can put them into the sauce and stir. I add sesame seeds just to feel fancy, but you don’t have to.
My 18 year old was home from college and he made it in under 10 minutes and that is even getting ingredients and pans out and cleaning up as he goes.
You have to let me know if you try this and what you think. The ease, price, smell, and taste, are incredible.
