Simple Spicy Noodles


I recently discovered a blog called Budget Bytes and I can't get over how awesome it is! I love a good food blog and Beth of Budget Bytes has taken food blogging to the next level. Every recipe Beth posts is perfect for the food lover on a budget. She even breaks down the ingredients and figures out the exact cost of each recipe. This is the first Budget Bytes recipe I decided to try and I love it. I can't wait to try more!

Ingredients (serves 2):
  • 4 oz. lo mein noodles
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha red rooster sauce
  • 1 handful fresh cilantro
  • 1 sliced green onion (I forgot to buy a green onion to add but I definitely will next time)

Boil the water for the noodles and cook according to the package directions. While waiting for the water to boil, prepare the sauce. In a small bowl stir together the brown sugar, soy sauce, and Sriracha.

In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium-low heat. Add the red pepper. Whisk an egg in a bowl and add it to the melted butter. Stir gently and cook through. Once the egg is done cooking, turn off the heat. When the noodles are tender, drain the water and add them to the skillet with the cooked egg. Now add the sauce. Turn the heat on to low to evaporate excess moisture, and stir until everything is coated well with the sauce.

Sprinkle the sliced green onion and cilantro leaves on top and serve!

P.S. Be sure to check back tomorrow for my 500th POST GIVEAWAY!

    1. Hi Bridget. Sriracha is just hot sauce. You can definitely substitute your favorite kind!
