Treat Tuesday #174 (Happy Book Birthday)

Treat Tuesday - 15 Minute Lazy Noodles

*A friend of my wife sent this recipe to her with RAVE reviews.

*We gave it a try and it was delicious.  We also wanted to see if it would take 15 minutes.  It was a bit more time, but well worth it.

*Happy eating and happy reading! 

  • 12 oz. dried wheat noodles (almost any noodle will do––even spaghetti)
  • 1-2 tablespoons vegetable or canola oil
  • 1 pound ground beef, pork, chicken, or turkey
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 2 large handfuls of baby spinach
  • salt and pepper
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon dark soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons chili oil (optional)

  •  Bring a pot of water to a boil for the noodles. Meanwhile, heat the wok over high heat, and and add a tablespoon or two of oil. Add the ground meat, and stir-fry until browned and slightly crispy.
  • Add the onion and garlic, and continue to cook over high heat until the onions are slightly softened and browned at the edges. Stir in the spinach until it’s just wilted. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Meanwhile, cook the noodles according to the package directions. Add to a bowl, along with the soy sauce, dark soy sauce, sesame oil, honey, and chili oil (if using). Toss with the onion, meat, and spinach mixture. Serve!
