Pan Fried Noodle

  • PrepTime: 7 Mins
  • CookTime: 10 Mins
  • TotalTime: 17 Mins


  1. 1 pound fresh noodles (or dried egg noodles)
  2. 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  3. 3 tablespoons peanut oil (or vegetable oil; or as needed)


  1. Gather the ingredients.  
  2. In a large saucepan, add enough water to cover the noodles and bring to a boil. Add the noodles, stirring to separate. Cook until the noodles are al dente—tender, but still firm.  
  3. Drain thoroughly. Rinse with cold water, drain again, and toss with the sesame oil.  
  4. In a heavy frying pan or a wok, heat the 3 tablespoons of peanut oil over medium-high to high heat. Add the noodles. Quickly spread them out to the edges of the pan and let them cook without stirring until they are browned on the bottom. This will take about 5 to 8 minutes.  
  5. Flip over and brown the other side.  
  6. Remove from the wok and plate.  
  7. Keep warm while preparing other ingredients for your meal.
