Please don’t make this and record yourself doing a mukbang. We’ve had enough of those already.

What you need

  • 1 package ramen or soba noodles. You can use thin spaghetti in a pinch.
  • 2 tbsp peanut or coconut oil
  • A bunch of scallions. Use however much you want. Go nuts.
  • 5-6 cloves of garlic
  • 2 tbsp grated ginger or .5 tsp ginger powder
  • 4 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp mirin, sake, or marsala
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp chili paste (I use Huy Fong Chili Garlic Sauce)

Do this

  • Cook the noodles according to the package directions. Omit the flavor packet. Or don’t. I’m not your mom.
  • Drain the noodles and set aside
  • Chop the scallions, keeping the white and green parts separate
  • Mince the garlic
  • In some sort of skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat
  • Add the white scallions, garlic, and ginger and stir for a minute or two
  • Add soy sauce, vinegar, mirin/ wine, chili paste, and sesame oil and stir for another minute
  • Add your noodles and stir to combine with the sauce
  • Serve topped with green scallions

    You can add some sort of protein like tofu or chicken, but I’ll leave that up to you.
