Dragon Noodles



So, I decided I would finally stop starving the hubby ;) and start cooking. Well I am not one for mentioning blogs that I love (and I'm not really sure why) but I stumbled upon a great blog...Budget Bytes. She has wonderful recipes that are easy to make AND affordable (ding, ding ding...key word for a graduate student!). Plus, there is an emphasis on Asian food, which I am a big fan of and she seems to be a big user of sriracha sauce, and really who isnt? A number of the recipes I planned for this coming week comes from this website, so thank you Budget Bytes :)

What was planned for sunday dinner? Dragon noodles. The name alone intrigues me and the picture made me start drooling. It must be a winner! And it was. Im actually going to text my sister and tell her she and her husband will love this recipe- and my sister is also a fan of easy and delicious recipes. As I've mentioned before, I am really big fan of Asian food- Chinese, Thai, Japanese, Korean, Indian...you name it! And I adore noodle dishes. But I've always assumed "Asian" food was hard to make- but what I've learned is that its not too hard- just a different style of cooking. I've gained the confidence to add "Asian" food that I will attempt to tackle in cooking for the hubby :)

Cooking tidbit: adding milk in scrambled eggs. Why? Adding milk in scrambled eggs, although dulling the color a bit- will add a creamy, and fluffy texture to your eggs. This will be enjoyable to eat and look well for presentation.






DRAGON NOODLES
Adapted from Budget Bytes

INGREDIENTS

1 package of Lo Mein Noodles
1 tbsp. brown sugar
2 tbsp. soy sauce
1 tsp. worcester sauce
2 tbsp. sriracha sauce
2 eggs
1 tbsp. milk
4 tbsp. butter
1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper
1/2 c. green onion
Cooked, diced chicken
cilantro

DIRECTIONS

Cook lo mein according to package direction (4-6 minutes). Once cooked, run cold water through to cool noodles and prevent from sticking. While noodles are cooking, combine brown sugar, soy sauce, and sriracha sauce to make "sauce" for noodles. Set aside. Then mix two eggs and milk. Heat skillet, slowly melting butter. As butter is melting add in crushed red peppers and green onions. Once butter is melted, add eggs and scramble. Once cooked, reduce heat to low- and add chicken and cooked lo mein noodles. Distribute egg and chicken throughout noodles. Slowly add in sauce and incorporate well. Garnish with cilantro.

Enjoy,
Chika
