Spicy Dragon Noodles

For my readers out there who love Chinese food, and/or spicy food, you're going to love this recipe: Spicy Dragon Noodles.

Not only is this recipe delicious, it's also super easy to make, and extremely inexpensive (what a bonus, right?). This recipe serves 2, so if you're feeding more people feel free to double or triple the recipe.


4 oz. lo mein noodles (or linguine if need be)
2 Tbsp butter 
¼ tsp crushed red pepper 
1 large egg 
1 Tbsp brown sugar 
1 Tbsp soy sauce 
1 Tbsp sriracha (rooster sauce) 
1 handful fresh cilantro 
1 sliced green onion 

Begin to boil water for the noodles. Once the water reaches a full boil, add the noodles and cook according to the package directions (boil for 5-7 minutes).

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 2 tablespoons of butter over medium-low heat. Add the red pepper to the butter as it melts. Whisk an egg in a bowl and then add 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 then add them to the skillet with the cooked egg. Also add the prepared 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 and cilantro leaves (whole) on top and serve.


Note: for added protein add thinly sliced strips of chicken, beef, shrimp or tofu.

Take Care,
