Lanzhou noodles with spicy sauce mix


  • Lanzhou noodles, I use the dry kind

  • 1 tsp soy sauce

  • 1 tsp Chinese chili oil or Lao Gan Ma oil

  • .5 tsp sesame oil

  • 1 tsp Chinkiang black vinegar

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 tsp of ginger, minced

  • Cilantro, minced (optional garnish)


  1. In a bowl, add the soy sauce, chili oil, sesame oil, vinegar, garlic, ginger, then set aside.

  2. Cook the Lanzhou noodles based on the package directions. Any noodles would work really, but I prefer to chew and the shape.

  3. Once cooked, run the noodles under water in a strainer briefly to remove excess starch, then drop the noodles into the bowl.

  4. Garnish with cilantro, and serve.

  5. Right before eating, mix everything up.
