Inspired by a recipe in Hetty McKinnon’s cookbook “To Asia, With Love,” we created this oven-only noodle dish, but we took some liberties, swapping instant ramen for the thin Chinese egg noodles customarily used to make chow mein. The ramen doesn’t require actual cooking—it needs only to hydrate in boiling water for a few minutes. We skip the splatter and stirring of stovetop cooking by using a baking sheet and a hot oven to oven-fry noodles alongside broccoli and sweet bell peppers. To finish, we toss everything with a simple blend of oyster sauce, soy sauce and garlic (or ginger), which brings delicious umami, saltiness and sweetness.



40 minutes


  • 3

    tablespoons soy sauce

    teaspoons oyster sauce

So Simple and So Good
This was so easy to make. Definitely will be in a rotation whenever I want an easy asian side noodle dish. Two thumbs up!

This was...kind of delicious? I thought it'd be yummy, of course, but I ended up eating a painful amount of it. Used ginger AND garlic and scallions AND sesame seeds.

Just ok
Noodles ended up much too oily and didn’t crisp up in the oven, kind of just got stuck to the tray. Might try again without putting oil on noodles and leaving them off the tray. Also the sauce needs to be heated up. It turned the whole thing cold. Maybe add some carrots and dice the red bell pepper. Strips are awkward to eat. I want it to be good!!!

The recipe description calls for hoisin sauce, but the ingredients don't include it. Is the soy sauce instead of hoisin, or in addition?
