    1. Boil noodles for 3 minutes, or until softened, without flavour packets. Reserve flavour packets. Drain noodles, and set aside.
    2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a small frying pan. Scramble eggs in a bowl. Cook and stir in hot oil until firm. Set aside.
    3. In a separate frying pan, heat 1 teaspoon of oil over medium heat. Cook and stir spring onions in oil for 2 to 3 minutes, or until softened. Transfer to a separate dish, and set aside. Heat another teaspoon of cooking oil in the same frying pan. Cook and stir the the carrots, peas and peppers separately in the same manner, setting each aside when done.
    4. Combine 2 tablespoons sesame oil with 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a separate frying pan or wok. Fry noodles in oil for 3 to 5 minutes over medium heat, turning regularly. Sprinkle soy sauce, sesame oil and desired amount of reserved seasoning packets over noodles, and toss to coat. Add vegetables, and continue cooking, turning frequently, for another 5 minutes.

    So good, but no need to take so many separate steps. Just cook the carrots and pepper first, push to the outsides of the pan and add meat. Boil noodles at the same time, then add to pot when meat is cooked. Add green onions and stir. Make a hole in the center and pour in the beaten eggs, scrambling as they cook. Stir it all together, add desired seasoning and you're done.  -  06 Jun 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was really good. A lot like the stir fried noodles from the Chinese restaurant, but not as oily. I skipped the red pepper and added, instead, pea pods, bean sprouts,and water chestnuts. I also used 3 packages of noodles and only 1 packet of seasoning. The seasoning was just right. More than that would have been too salty. I don't know where they came up with it being 6 servings. It was just enough for me and my boyfriend and he's a big eater (and he would have like it if there had been more!) It serves probably more like 1 person per packet of noodles. Next time I'll use 4 packets and have leftovers! It was so yummy!  -  26 Sep 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Everyone who was over for dinner loved the noodles along with my family, including a picky 4-year old and a baby! I did alter the recipe slightly: I cooked the veggies all at once as suggested by previous reviewers, and instead of using ramen noodles, I used "A taste of Thai" rice noodles according to package directions. They are a bit more filling and have no sodium, fat, or cholesterol. They went well with a grilled tenderloin, marinated and smothered in sweet and sour sauce.  -  17 Aug 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
