I love this recipe. One of my favorite dishes is cold sesame noodles. This recipe might be made with peanut butter, but it's the best home version I've found. Because I've been living abroad for the past several years, I've had to learn to recreate such culinary memories at home - and this particular dish was the hardest to get just right. I've spent the last two months making this sauce at least three or four times a week, using recipes from all over the internet - including those of celebrity chefs (and if you're interested, Tyler Florence's recipe for sesame noodles is also really worth trying). But for ease of preparation and great taste, this recipe is just my favorite. If you want to play around with it, you can try adding sesame oil or a little vinegar to cut the sweetness - but I think it's best as it is. Scallions cut on the bias, julienned cucumbers, julienned carrots, chopped peanuts, or toasted sesame seeds all make fantastic additions. This is also a perfect sauce for cracked pepper grilled chicken. This sauce is savory, sweet, spicy, smooth, sticky, kid friendly, fast, cheap, and delicious. Try it!
This was just ok. The flavours were nice but the peanut butter overpowered the dish a little. Next time I would use less peanut butter and add a little more chili, garlic and a squeeze of lemon juice.
Excellent, quick recipe!! Added some chicken, carrots, bean sprouts, and green beans, and it reminded me of the Thai Chicken from The Cheesecake Factory. A recommendation for a slight change to this recipe: by cutting out the peanut butter and peanuts, and replacing them with apricot or pineapple jam and lime juice, you get a very Islands-flavor recipe as well.
Wonderful but add cilantro, sesame oil and grilled chicken for heaven! Edited - forgot to add that I put in some red pepper for color and flavour.If you like spicey add some diced red and green chiles.
This is a keeper- tastes just like the Thai noodles that you get in Asia. Watch the garlic though, as some may find it a litte overpowering. I've made it several times and use chunky peanut butter, that way I don't have to use crushed peanuts, and it's even quicker!
Great recipe, easy and tasty. I will make this again, and I am planning on trying one reviewers suggestion to add coconut milk.
I was so happy to find this recipe! Its nearly identical to one which was served in a restraunt where I used to work. The dish was called Thai Chicken. To recreate it I addded shredded chicken breast, julianned carrots and purple cabbage. Really tasty either way!
Was worried the peanut butter sauce was too runny when I first dumped it over the noodles, but after it sat for a few minutes it turned into what I was expecting. Thanks! Went well with the baked sesame chicken on this site.
