This drunken noodle recipe makes a delicious and easy weeknight dinner. Dark soy sauce is thicker and sweeter than regular light soy sauce. Look for it at Asian markets or online. If you can't find it, substitute 1 teaspoon light soy sauce mixed with 1 teaspoon molasses.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil over high heat. Add noodles and remove from heat. Let soak, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water.

  • Meanwhile, toss steak with cornstarch and 2 teaspoons reduced-sodium soy sauce in a medium bowl. Combine the remaining 2 teaspoons reduced-sodium soy sauce, fish sauce, oyster sauce, dark soy sauce and brown sugar in a small bowl.

  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a flat-bottom wok or large cast-iron skillet over high heat. Add the steak and cook, stirring occasionally, until just cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a clean plate.

  • Add the remaining 2 tablespoons oil, onion, bell pepper and chiles to taste to the pan. Cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned and softened, about 3 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds. Add the drained noodles, the steak and the sauce. Cook, tossing, until the noodles are coated and hot, about 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in basil. Serve with lime wedges and bean sprouts, if desired.
