A dollop of ginger jam gives this recipe plenty of authentic Asian punch. This is one of the better noodles recipes I have seen that is simple and easy to teach. As you will note, there are combinations of sweet and spicy here. In Singapore, it has become a national pass time to criticize China for anything resembling a curry, particularly if peanut sauce is used. We choose to respectfully ignore, and pass to you this very quality good food recipe that you can prepare in minutes and will bring your heart to peace.
1 lb wide lo mein noodles
6 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
3 tablespoons dark soy sauce
3 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
3 tablespoons boiling water
3 tablespoons ginger preserves or jam
1/2 teaspoon dried red pepper flakes
2 teaspoons sesame seeds
4 teaspoons rice vinegar

- Cook the noodles according to directions that are on the package. Drain, and rinse in cold water.
- Mix swiftly together the remaining ingredients except scallions until it is very smooth. Toss noodles and sauce gently to coat with flavor, then top with chopped scallions. This may be served at room temperature, or chilled as you like.
