Have you ever heard of the “Spicy Noodle Challenge”?
Well my husband had as well, so when I saw the infamous noodles available at a local grocery store I just couldn’t help myself and purchased a couple for my husband and brother. They are both absurdly intrigued by the thought of eating very spicy things and testing their tolerance.
Eventually at some point that week I made the noodles per package instructions for my husband and instead of it being a painful experience for him, he actually enjoyed it. Now, let me warn you, my husband has a very high spicy tolerance! In fact he liked them so much that they have become a weekly staple. Over the months I have really amped up the recipe and now even for me, someone who doesn’t enjoy painful levels of spice, these are pretty delicious.
- 2 Packs Samyung Noodles including flavor packs and garnish packs
- 1/2 of an onion diced fine
- 3 cloves of minced
- 1 tablespoon of minced ginger
- 1 tablespoon of sesame seeds
- 1 tablespoon of butter
- 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 2 teaspoons of Trader Joes Umami Seasoning
- Green Onion for garnish
- 2 Eggs
- 2 tablespoons of Oil
- Head a large pan on medium heat.
- Add Butter.
- Add onion, garlic, and ginger. Cook for about 5 minutes until everything is soft and translucent.
- Add garlic powder and umami seasoning and give a quick stir.
- Add 3 cups of water and noodles along with spice sauce packet and let it come to a boil.
- The water will eventually evaporate and the noodles will become cooked and tender, this process should only take 5 minutes.
- Add cream and garnish packets and let it simmer for 2-3 minutes.
- Add cooked egg and fold.
- Drizzle with honey and garnish with sesame seeds and green onions.
- Crack Eggs and whisk them with salt until they are well mixed and fluffy.
- Take a small pan, the smallest you have (the one I use is only 3-4 inches and is meant to be used for single eggs)
- Heat your pan on medium high and add two tablespoons of oil.
- Add the eggs to your pan and start folding your eggs and tilting your pan as they cook.
- Once the egg isn't runny and the bottom has browned (should take less than a min) flip the egg and let it cook until the other side is brown as well.
- Take the egg out on a cutting board and let it cool a bit and then dice it into bite sized pieces.
