How To Make Take-Out Style Chinese Sesame Noodles

These addicting, delicious noodles are even better than the take-out version from your favorite Chinese restaurant.


  • 1 pound egg or rice noodles
  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons raw tahini
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil 
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons Sriracha sauce
  • 1/3 cup chopped roasted peanuts
  • Salt to taste


  1. Cook the noodles according to the instructions given by the manufacturer, but make sure they are still a little chewy when you finish cooking. Drain the noodles and rinse them well with cold water.
  2. Toss the noodles with an oil of your choice to prevent them from sticking together.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, vinegar, sesame oil, tahini, peanut butter, honey, ginger, garlic, sriracha, and salt into a creamy sauce. If the sauce seems too thick and difficult to stir, add a teaspoon at a time of cold water.
  4. Pour the noodles into the bowl with the sesame sauce and toss well to coat each noodle with sauce. Transfer to serving bowls and garnish with the peanuts.
