Cold Sesame Noodles

Another Arcadia Ward Cookbook favorite. They're almost as good as the noodles you can get in NYC's Chinatown!

And, I've tried A LOT of these noodle recipes to find a Chinatown replicate.

1 lb linguine or lo mien noodles

3 T soy sauce
2 T rice vinegar
2 T packed brown sugar
1/2 C creamy peanut butter
1 T sesame oil
1 t grated gingerroot (or 1/3 t ground ginger)
1/2 c chicken broth
1/4 to 1/2 t red pepper flakes

Noodles: Cook al dente according to the directions on package. Rinse

Sauce: Cook all ingredients in a saucepan on medium heat. Stir until thickened and smooth. Cool. Toss and garnish with chopped scallions (and I like to add chopped cilantro and squeeze a little lime juice over the top).

Anna and I were talking about this recipe today, and I realized I forgot to note that I usually add some vegetables or chicken to this because otherwise, it can feel like there's too much sauce.
