Spicy Beijing Noodles

Chef Almir Da Fonseca prepares zhajiangmian or Beijing-style noodles. Literally translated as “fried sauce noodles,” these flavor-packed noodles are stir-fried over high heat. Chef Da Fonseca uses canola oil because of its higher smoking point, and tops the noodles with nappa cabbage, sprouts, carrots and cucumbers.
