Wine Pairings by @grapefriend

A full-bodied rosé like those from Tavel or Navarra will offset the heat but be able to stand up to the meatiness of this noodle dish.

Beer Pairings

An American IPA has increased maltiness with a prominent hoppy aroma to complement this spicy dish perfectly.

What To Do:

Spicy Szechuan Noodles - Step 1

2. Soften Noodles: Add noodles to a bowl or pot of boiling water and cook 2 to 2.5 minutes. Strain and run under cold water briefly to prevent overcooking.

3. Brown Beef and Bok Choy: Heat 1 teaspoon canola oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add ground beef, ginger, garlic, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Sauté 4 minutes until beef crumbles. Add bok choy. Cover and cook 3 minutes or until tender.

4. Finish Dish: Add noodles and sauce to beef mixture. Cook 2 minutes or until heated through. Stir in scallions.

To Serve: Divide noodles between two serving plates.

Pro Tip:

Serve this dish immediately. The noodles will soak up the sauce, so add additional water if needed.


Sure, our TK food containers are recyclable, but we’d rather you upcycle them first. We’re partial to using them to sprout our garden seeds, but we’d love to see how creative you are! Tag us in your photos with @terraskitchen and #TerrasKitchen.
