I had a craving for stir fried noodles one night and good thing I always have a bag of fresh Chinese noodles, eggs and Chinese sausages in the fridge. You can find fresh Chinese noodles pretty easily in Chinatown. They sell them in bags and in different varieties round, thin, thick, flat… For $1.29 a bag, its about 4 servings. So I decided to make a stir fried noodles with Chinese sausages and I’ll use oyster sauce to flavor it but I also wanted some greens in it. Went to Trader Joe’s after work and saw a bag of snow peas. Haven’t had snow peas in a long time and never cooked snow peas before.
This was quick and easy. Basically boil a pot of water for the noodles, it shouldn’t take too long since its fresh. Cut up the sausages, scramble couple eggs and maybe throw in garlic/onion if you got some. Heat up a pan and stir fry everything except for the noodles and eggs. When the snow peas and sausages are almost done throw in the noodles and give it a good stir. At this point I added some baby spinach as well, these cook fast! Now add some oyster sauce, as much as you like. I also added some hoisin sauce to it. After everything gets coated with the oyster sauce, make a well in the center and pour in the eggs. Leave it alone for few minutes to let the bottom solidify. Now stir the eggs to make scrambled eggs and once you have enough chunks of eggs, mix it together with the noodles. Done.
I never tried added hoisin sauce to noodles before and I found, surprisingly, it gave the dish some twang. Good.
