My take on Sesame Noodles. One of my favorite lunches when I lived in Beijing was a dish called Liang Pi, or with the farmer Beijing accent, Liang P'yarr. It is a dish of cold noodles tossed in MaJiang, or the Chinese style sesame sauce. The noodles are paired with shredded cucumber and tofu, and usually a chili paste.
It was the start of many more college nights eating hot or cold sesame noodles for dinner. The noodles were like my own version of the ubiquitous packaged ramen popular with so many college students.

My take on Sesame Noodles step by step
- Heat a large pot of water until it boils. In the meantime: peel and cut the cucumber in julienne sticks (approx. 2.5 – 3 inch long, 1/8 inch wide & high). Also, chop the peanuts coarsely (pulse once or twice in a food processor is the easiest way, but be careful: don't turn them to flour!).
- Once the water boils, add the noodles and cook for 5 minutes or al dente (be careful not to overcook them!). While the noodles cook: combine oil, soy sauce, vinegar, yuzu paste, peanut butter, sugar, ginger, garlic and gochujang in a small bowl. Whisk until smooth and silky..
- Drain the noodles and rinse them in cold water until they are at room temperature..
- Combine the noodles and the sauce and toss until well coated..
- Serve in bowls and garnish with the cucumbers and the chopped peanuts. Enjoy!.
