Spicy Lo Mein

Got this kind of weird craving for noodles at 10:00 am this morning, so I stopped at Whole Foods and got what I needed, and you know what.. I aint even mad at you carbs, I love you actually. 
This has got to be one of the easiest & tastiest noodle recipes I've ever made...aaand extremely budget friendly, since I had everything minus the noodles in my pantry. 

What you will need..

Pack of Lo Mein Noodles / 8 oz.
4 tbs. of Butter
1/2 tbs of red pepper
2 large eggs
1 minced garlic clove
2 tbs. of brown sugar
2 tbs. of soy sauce
2 tbs. of sriracha
2 green onions
1-2 handfuls of chopped cilantro

The above amounts are for 3-4 people..But I ended up having to make another batch for Daniel & feel free to double or triple it, really.

These are the noodles I used, I'm sure any lo mein would do

So start by boiling your water, you want it to be super boily ( is this a word?) before you throw in the noodles, they cook extremely fast, so they will get mushy if the water is not hot enough.

Mix the Brown sugar, sriracha, and soy sauce..

 chop your cilantro, garlic & green onions
 in a separate bowl whisk up your eggs

Grab your butter, melt it with the garlic, and red pepper flakes, once its hot and melted, go ahead and toss your eggs in the skillet

Like I said the noodles cook extremely fast, anywhere from 4-6 minutes, so once your egg is done, your noodles will be done if not very close.

drain & rinse with cold water

throw noodles into skillet with egg & butter mixture, along with your sriracha / soy sauce, then top with the onions & cilantro

Mix everything together on medium heat..and that is it! This will seriously take you 15-20 minutes to cook, no excuse to not cook, ah I love cooking..on my days off at least ;)

I paired this with an extremely girly strawberry beer my best friend picked out for me. It was delicious.
