Recipe Round Up: Quick Sesame Noodles with Cabbage
10 packages ramen noodles, reserve seasoning packet for another time, or discard (substitute refrigerated or higher quality ramen as you wish)
1/3 cup safflower oil
1 large onion, finely diced
2 1/2 pounds cabbage, cored and finely shredded
1/4 cup sesame seeds
2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger
8 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup sesame oil
salt and pepper, to taste
1 pound fresh or frozen peas (optional)
1/2 cup chopped scallions, to garnish
Sri Racha to pass at table
Bring a large pot of water to boil. Cook ramen noodles until chewy and soft, about 4 minutes. Drain and rinse to remove extra starch. Set aside.
While noodles are cooking, heat oil in large skillet over medium high heat, and sauté onion and cabbage to soften, about 5 minutes. Add in cooked noodles, sesame seeds, ginger, garlic, sugar, soy sauce, and sesame oil. Cook another 2 minutes, then add peas, if using. Heat another minute or so, taste to season with salt and pepper.
Serve garnished with scallions and pass sri racha at the table.
