Peking Noodles

A very easy and tasty hoisin-based pasta dish - sometimes referred to as 'chinese spaghetti'

Peking Noodles


  • ground beef: 1.5 to 2 lbs
  • scallion:  2 stalks; diced
  • Hoisin sauce:  one bottle (probably will use 1/2 to 2/3 bottle); the one by Koon Chun is best; WholeFoods has it
  • corn starch: 1-2 TBS, dissolve in 1 cup of water
  • Pasta. Linguine works well.


  • slice or grate peeled cucumber into thin strips
  • scallion; diced



  • add 2-3 TBS of oil in wok or skillet; when hot, add scallion; stir.
  • Add beef and cook until done.
  • Add Hoisin sauce; stir;
  • add corn starch water (slowly, a portion at a time until the sauce gets a little sticky).
  • Stir often and let it simmer (the longer the better, this way the beef will disintegrate.)
  • Add black pepper to taste.


  • Follow instructions on the box.
