I was originally inspired to make this dish after my favorite Thai restaurant in San Diego closed. I was a loyal customer and totally addicted to their Drunken Noodles, Yellow Curry and Pan Fried Roti Bread!

Since they closed their doors a few years ago, I’ve been perfecting my own versions of their classic Thai recipes. After dozens of recreations of their Drunken Noodles, I’ve finally made the perfect recipe for Drunken Noodles!

While the recipe is quite simple, getting the perfect Drunken Noodles sauce is really the key to this noodle dish. The sauce is so flavorful and slightly spicy. In this recipe, I’ll share how to adjust the spice to your preference!

If you’ve been looking for the best drunken noodles recipe, you just found it! And luckily, it’s made in less time than it will take you to order Thai food on an app!

If you don’t have an Instant Pot or electric pressure cooker by now, it’s time to hop on the bandwagon!

We talked all about electric pressure cookers, sous vide’s and air fryers on the latest episode of the Feed Me! podcast: Hot Kitchen Picks for 2019!

Pressure cooking is a great way to make deliciously flavorful food in a very short amount of time. Take a beef chuck roast and turn it into this amazing French Onion Pot Roast or make the best Beef Ragu in just an hour!

Speaking of the best, this is seriously the best beef stroganoff I’ve ever had! Kurt said that anytime I ask what he wants for dinner from now on, he will say this dish!

I used a beef chuck roast for this recipe, making it a cross between a pot roast and beef stroganoff. The beef is so tender and flavorful, the sauce, so creamy and the egg noodles tie the whole thing together. The best part is, everything cooks in the Instant Pot making clean-up a breeze!

Slow Cooker Black Pepper Beef and Broccoli

The best black pepper beef and broccoli recipe is made in a crockpot with a delicious Chinese black pepper sauce, then tossed with noodles for a simple slow cooker meal that only takes 10 minutes of prep time!

It’s hard to pick the best dish at Tasty Noodle House, our favorite Chinese restaurant in San Diego, but their Black Pepper Beef & Noodles is definitely in the top 3!

While I’ve already recreated some of our favorite Chinese chicken dishes, like Orange Chicken, Honey Chicken and Chinese Lettuce Wraps, it was about time I recreated our favorite Chinese beef dish!

I decided to slow cook the beef in the Chinese black pepper sauce, so that the beef would be extremely tender, with a deep, rich flavor. There’s also no need to marinate the meat, as it cooks in the sauce for hours, so it soaks in all of the sauce!

The great thing is, you can set it and forget it, then toss the noodles and broccoli in at the end.

The sauce will cook the noodles right in the crock pot and the broccoli will be steamed in the slow cooker, so there’s no need for extra pots or pans!
