Sesame Noodles

In the late hours of the night, Shorty Tang’s iconic sesame noodles hit different. The recipe is quick and easy for your midnight dining pleasure.

  • 1 lb fresh lo mein noodles (you can substitute for dried pasta, but fresh is preferable)
  • 2 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 3½ Tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp Chinese rice vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp tahini
  • 1½ Tbsp smooth peanut butter
  • 1 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 Tbsp finely grated ginger
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 tsp chile crisp
  • Persian cucumbers, cut into matchsticks
  • Sesame seeds, for garnish
  • Scallion, for garnish
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together sesame oil, soy sauce, rice vinegar, tahini (sesame paste would be more authentic, but I had tahini in my fridge), peanut butter, sugar, ginger, garlic and chile crisp
  2. Toss the cooked noodles into the sauce and garnish with cucumber, sesame seeds, and scallions. Finish with more chile crisp to your taste.
