  • 12 oz ramen noodles
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 12 oz Chinese wheat noodles
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 8 oz ham julienned
  • 1 sweet red pepper very thinly sliced
  • 1 cup shredded cucumber
  • 4 cups shredded iceberg lettuce
  • 2 green onions thinly sliced
  • 4 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds
  • 2/3 cups chicken stock
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/3 cup cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon grated gingerroot


Sauce: In saucepan, bring stock, sugar, vinegar, soy sauce and ginger to boil; reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Strain and refrigerate until cool. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 3 days.)

Beat together eggs, salt and 1 tsp (5 mL) of the oil. Heat 6-inch (15 cm) nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; brush lightly with some of the remaining oil. Pour in about one-quarter of the egg mixture, tilting pan to spread evenly; cook until top is set, about 30 seconds. Slide out onto cutting board. Repeat with remaining egg mixture to make 4 thin omelettes; stack and cut into fine shreds.

In large pot of boiling salted water, cook noodles until tender but firm, about 5 minutes; drain and chill under cold water. Drain well. In bowl, toss noodles with sesame oil.

Arrange noodles on 4 dinner plates. Attractively top with eggs, ham, red pepper, cucumber and lettuce. Sprinkle with green onions. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate up to 4 hours.) Sprinkle with sauce and sesame seeds.
