Wok-Fried Egg Noodles Recipe
Wok-Fried Egg Noodles Recipe so we did nasi goreng which is fried rice a while back so today we’re gonna do “me” and I noodle. So simply means fried noodles so as you can imagine there are many many different ways you can go about doing it there are many different variations. so today I’m gonna show you let’s get started! let’s make the sauce which is the heart of this dish the sauce is very simple. we’re gonna start with the most important ingredient and that is sweet soy sauce look at that thick and luscious. now sweet soy sauce I have talked about out but just briefly the bottle looks like this and you can find it at any Asian grocery store it’s sweet almost molasses-y, delicious really important in Indonesian cooking. but it is not very salty so we’re gonna add saltiness by adding soy sauce regular soy sauce and oyster sauce. you can also just do soy sauce, more soy sauce, and no oyster sauce. but I like a combination of both and a little bit of sesame oil, toasted sesame oil for some extra aroma. I like to add a little bit of heat and also a little bit of tartness so I like to use this Sambal Oelek paste which is like a chili vinegar and garlic paste and I just like that a little bit of tartness from the vinegar. you don’t have to add it or you can sriracha as well if you have that in the house and that is it that is the sauce.
Wok-Fried Egg Noodles Recipe So I’m just gonna talk through the main ingredients real quickly noodles. so for this, I am using egg noodles and I bought mine already cooked okay. so I didn’t have to cook it or anything but I did just run it under cold water just to wash off the oil that they used to coat the noodles cuz. I don’t know what kind of oil that is it’s probably not good oil, so just give it a quick rinse. for this, you can use any kind of egg noodles or any kind of wheat noodles you like means wheat noodles so definitely don’t use rice noodles for me, so I’ve got that and then for vegetables. you can really do whatever you want. but here are my recommendations carrots cabbage and then. I like to have some sturdy greens because you know you want some greens in there you can do bok choy Gai Lan (Chinese broccoli) or I happen to have some nice kale so that’s what I am doing and then also just a little bit of tomatoes and some green onions which. you’re gonna throw-in at the end and I love adding tomatoes at the end it adds sort of a nice bright juicy acidity when you eat so this would be highly recommended other than that everything else is super simple let’s get cooking, okay so I’ve got my work here and as per usual when I do stir fry’s you know me. I like to cook off my protein separately so I can control the doneness of it today I’m using shrimp I’m just gonna sear them off so I’m using some shallot oil here because I made some fried shallots earlier which are gonna go on top at the end you don’t have to if you’re gonna use store-bought fried shallots or you’re gonna not have fried shallots just use regular cooking oil and no matter how well I think I dry shrimp they still splatter on me.
Snd if you’re gonna do sort of more bland protein like chicken breast make sure you marinate it in a little bit of soy sauce so that it has some flavor and yes I would also cook that off separately I’m gonna toss them into the bowl and in the same wok keep the heat sort of medium to medium-low for now. A bit more oil now I’m going to add garlic shallots and some extra Thaichilies because I’m feeling spicy today you don’t have to. Cook that down to soften the shallots, infuse all those flavors into the oil alright I got small pieces of garlic and things starting to brown the shallots are becoming translucent my vegetables and if you’re using tender greens you could save it for later but because my kale, you can’t overcook kale, the kale is very sturdy so I’m adding it now. Give that a quick toss and add just a little bit of the sauce just to give the vegetables some seasoning love so it doesn’t all end up on the noodles and also some various options that you can try at home. Are you all alright? And once again Adam is dying of chili fumes, okay so the vegetables are somewhat wilted now I’m happy with that I’m gonna just push them aside a little add a little more oil cuz I’m gonna put my eggs in and break the yolks slightly let that set put the vegetables over the egg so it can sort of like smother give it 30seconds and do a flip and your egg should be browned on the bottom which is what we want and now the noodles go in and right away the sauce and now changing weapon and I’m just gonna toss, look how beautiful that looks colorful and that is it I’m turning off the heat.
Wok-Fried Egg Noodles Recipe I’m adding my tomatoes and green onions by the way if you can get Roma tomatoes to use Roma tomatoes because they’re less juicy when I was at the store, the Roma tomatoes sucked. so I have to get regular juicy tomatoes, but less juicy is better and that is it I do not want to cook the tomatoes to death. I knew this would happen shrimp don’t forget to throw. your protein back in sees it’s a good thing they’re already cooked now we’re ready to eat look at that looks. so good make sure I get lots of tomatoes cuz that’s a favorite part. I added a lot of vegetables to this recipe because listen to the baby needs vegetables okay. so I’m doing.. I want indulgent noodles. but I’m still like okay I still got to make this kind of healthy. so here we go if you want you can also finish it with some crispy fried shallots oh my god. so good and I will include how to make fried shallots in the written recipe. it is not hard you can also buy it but it’s so much better to make it that’s it time to eat. one of those things you know it’s gonna be good. before you even eat it and when you eat it sticks like yep it exactly as good as I thought it would be the sauce is sweet and salty just the perfect combination with a little bit of cake from all the chilies the little tartness from the Sun bomb the tomatoes it’s just a flavorful dish and all those vegetables make sure you pick some crunchy vegetables cuz those crunches really important in contrasting the chewy noodles and all that stuff it’s simple. I suppose it’s healthy there are lots of vegetables in there but definitely an easy weeknight-friendly thing that you can do that will please everybody in the family.
