P.F. Chang's China Bistro Garlic Noodles
- Cantonese Stir Fry Sauce:
- 3 tsp minced garlic
- 3 tsp granulated sugar
- 2 tbsp white vinegar
- 1 1/2 tsp red chile flakes
- 2 tbsp canola oil
- 1 pound fresh Chinese noodle or vermicelli
- 1/2 tsp sesame oil
- 4 ounces Cantonese stir fry sauce (see recipe below)
- 1 Japanese cucumber or English cucumber
- 2 tbsp chopped cilantro
- 3/4 cup water
- 1 tbsp chicken base powder (no MSG)
- 1 tbsp granulated sugar
- 2 tbsp shaohsing wine or sherry
- 1 tbsp oyster sauce
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp cornstarch
Cook pasta. Rinse and cool down. Set aside. Toss in red chile flakes and cilantro.
Wash cucumber. Slice diagonally into 1/4-inch thick slices. Slice into strips. Set aside.
Heat wok thoroughly, add oil, then minced garlic. Stir fry briefly. Do not burn garlic or it will take on an acrid smell and taste. (If this happens, throw it out and start over.)
Add sugar and vinegar.
Add noodle to wok, stirring and tossing to mix until noodle is heated through.
Place on plates and surround with cucumber strips.
NOTE: Chinese noodle is available fresh frozen, and can be cooked like any fresh pasta. Bring water to boil, and noodles, separate. Drain and shock in cold water. Toss with salad oil. Uncooked fresh pasta can be frozen indefinitely.
Cantonese Stir Fry Sauce:
1. Very concentrated. Use sparingly when stir frying vegetables or tossing with noodles.
2. Recipe doubles.
3. Refrigerates well, up to a month.
4. Stir thoroughly before using.
