  • 1 (9-ounce package) Gefen Lo-Mein Noodles
  • 1 cup thinly sliced green onion
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
  • 2 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • 1/2 cup store-bought peanut sauce


Cook noodles according to package directions. Drain, rinse with cool water and set aside.

In a large bowl, combine noodles, green onion, cilantro, egg, flour, sesame seeds, sesame oil and salt and stir well. Take a small handful of noodle mixture and form a 2-inch pancake and set on a sheet pan. Continue with remaining until all the pancakes are formed.

Fill a large skillet a 1/4 inch deep with oil and heat over medium to medium-high heat. Fry a few pancakes at a time, being careful not to overcrowd the pan. Fry about 2 minutes per side or until golden and crispy. Remove from pan and place on a sheet pan lined with paper towels. Repeat with remaining pancakes until all have been fried. Serve immediately with peanut sauce.
