Spicy Rice Noodle Stir-Fry

Scott Phillips

Servings: 4

With a nod to pad Thai, this noodle dish makes an exciting, meat-free weeknight dinner. The short-cut trick is using slaw mix.


  • 8 oz. rice noodles (preferably flat)
  • 3 Tbs. canola oil
  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3 Tbs. light brown sugar
  • Kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 3 Tbs. unseasoned rice vinegar
  • 2 Tbs. peanut butter, preferably chunky
  • 1 Tbs. Sriracha; more to taste
  • 7 oz. shredded cabbage slaw mix (3 cups)
  • 3 medium scallions, trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 3 medium cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup unsalted peanuts, chopped
  • 1 Tbs. fresh lime juice
  • Lime wedges, for serving

  • Cook the noodles according to package directions. Drain and rinse with hot water. Toss with 1 Tbs. of the oil and set aside.
  • Meanwhile, whisk the eggs with 1 Tbs. of the sugar and 1/4 tsp. salt in a medium bowl. In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining 2 Tbs. sugar, soy sauce, vinegar, peanut butter, and Sriracha.
  • Heat the remaining 2 Tbs. oil in a 14-inch wok over high heat until shimmering hot. Add the slaw and stir-fry until it begins to soften, about 2 minutes. Add the scallions and garlic and stir-fry until fragrant, 5 to 10 seconds. Transfer to a large bowl.
  • Pour the eggs into the wok and scramble until softly set, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to the bowl of vegetables. Put the noodles in the wok, add the soy sauce mixture, and toss with tongs until coated, about 1 minute. Add the eggs and vegetables and toss until heated through, about 1 minute more. Remove from the heat, and toss with the peanuts and lime juice. Serve with lime wedges.

    This is one of my family's favorites. We season according to the kids tastes, and load up on the Siraccha for me and the wife!
