Matt’s Spicy Peanut Butter Ramen Noodles

When I first saw this recipe on social media I knew I had to try it. It uses so many products that we make and that I have at my home at all times. The first time I prepared this I followed the recipe. Now, I’ve made it so many times that I just eyeball it. The Bluegrass Soy Sauce creates the umami, but what really shines is the Bourbon Smoked Salt and Pepper Peanuts and Bourbon Smoked Sesame Seeds–plus a ton of garlic and chili crisp. This recipe is quick, easy, and full of flavor–perfect for a busy weeknight.

Bourbon Barrel Foods - Quick Ramen with peanut sauce and togarashi


For The Noodles:

  1. 1 pre portioned package of ramen noodles
  2. 2 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
  3. 1 tablespoon Bluegrass Soy Sauce
  4. 1⁄2 tablespoon rice vinegar
  5. 3 garlic cloves, minced (fresh is always best)
  6. 1 teaspoon Bourbon Smoked Sesame Seeds
  7. 1 teaspoon chili crisp (more if you like it spicy)
  8. 1⁄2 teaspoon sesame oil
For the Garnish:
  1. 1 green onion, chopped (chives work well, too)
  2. 1 tablespoon Bourbon Smoked Salt and Pepper Peanuts,
  3. finely chopped
  4. 1⁄2 teaspoon Bourbon Smoked Sesame Seeds
  5. 1⁄2 teaspoon Bourbon Smoked Togarashi
  6. 1 teaspoon chili crisp


Cook noodles according to package instructions. (Matt used the fresh stuff, the fancy dried stuff, and the $.99 noodles without the flavor packet and all worked the same way.) Reserve 2 or more tablespoons of the cooking water and drain additional water.

Stir together peanut butter, Bluegrass Soy Sauce, rice wine vinegar, minced garlic, Bourbon Smoked Sesame Seeds, chili crisp, and sesame oil in a bowl, then add 2 tablespoons of the hot noodle water to melt everything together. (Use more or less depending on the type of
peanut butter. Matt likes the fresh organic stuff and use more hot water than with the major brand.) Mix your noodles in, top with the garnishes, and serve immediately
