Semi-Homemade Samyang (Extremely Spicy) Noodles

  • Save

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.
