Pan Fried Rice Noodles


2 oz rice noodles

1 tbsp vegetable oil, divided

2 green onions

1 cup Best Classic Meatloaf Recipe (4 oz)

1 dried Thai chili pepper (optional)

2 tsp soy sauce

½ tsp sesame oil

¼ tsp sugar

½ tbsp Chinese black vinegar

¼ tsp black pepper


Place the rice spaghetti container that allows it to lay flat.  Cover with cool water and allow to soak for 1 hour.  Drain and return to the container.   Massage a small amount of oil over the strands and set them aside.

Thinly slice green onion and crumble meatloaf.  Set aside.

Mix soy sauce, sesame oil, sugar, vinegar and black pepper in a small bowl and set aside.

Heat oil and Thai pepper in a wok or heavy skillet over medium-high heat.

Add spaghetti, green onion and meatloaf to wok.  Cook until spaghetti is slightly browned, about 5 minutes. Use tongs to toss frequently for even browning and to prevent spaghetti from sticking together Pour in soy sauce mixture and stir to deglaze the pan.

Remove from wok immediately, garnish with additional green onions and serve.

Hack:  I’ve used leftover meatloaf in this recipe but you can use any leftover meat that you have on hand!

Hack:  For more variety, add some sauteed fresh or leftover veggies of your choice.

Hack:  Chop leftover green onions and freeze in a sealable freezer bag or container for future use. While they won’t retain the crispness that would make them suitable for salads or garnish, they will be fine for cooking.

  1. Hi, a fantastic recipe and something that I have never seen before. Honestly, I know fried rice and I know noodles, but Pan Fried Rice Noodles is something that I have never seen or tasted. It looks so delicious and tempting. Actually, I wish someone would cook for me but after reading your post, I am planning to give it a shot. You have listed down the steps in such easy-to-follow steps. Thank you so much!! I can’t wait to try it out. 

    1. Oh, Augustine…I wish someone would cook for me, too. 😉  Since we’re stuck doing our own cooking, though, I’m happy I could give you some fresh ideas!

  2. This would make a delicious side dish when I am going all out at my family dinners. My family always love Chinese dishes and this one is very easy. I also like the fact that I can use left over meat dishes to add to the noodles. Great idea. I love all your recipes.
