These Spicy Peanut Noodles with Sesame Meatballs are such a delicious weeknight meal! Soy sauce, ginger, peanut butter, red peppers, and honey come together to make a tangy sauce that will make your taste buds dance. This recipe is easy and can be made in about 30-40 minutes with ingredients that are in your pantry!
Spicy peanut noodles and sesame meatballs are the perfect combination of flavors. With orange and red peppers, zucchini squash, and red onions, you get a nice healthy helping of vegetables and a good source of protein from the sesame meatballs. Flavorful AND healthy! Does it get any better?
For this recipe, I used my favorite peanut butter from Spread the Love. It's creamy and doesn't contain any filler ingredients! That means no added sugar, salt, hydrogenated oils - no junk!
I am so excited to share this recipe! If you've been following Britney Breaks Bread you know that I pour my heart into every recipe. Let's talk about it!
For the meatballs, you can use ground turkey or ground pork. Ground pork is my preference, but I know many people do not eat swine. This recipe was also featured in The Pioneer Woman's "20 Ground Pork Recipes for Easy Dinners"! Go check out the roundup of delicious recipes to make!
I used garlic, salt, pepper, sesame oil, red onions, and red pepper to season the meat and then rolled them into little balls and fried them stove top!
Any noodle shape can be used for this recipe, just use what you have on hand. Pictured here is linguine but feel free to get creative. Another key for this recipe is to sprinkle peanuts and sesame seeds on top. It's not only pleasing to the eye, but it gives the dish a nice crunch!

Can I bake the meatballs instead? If so, at why temperature and for how long?
Absolutely, I would bake the meatballs at 400 for about 15-20 minutes.
Oh my gosh this is delicious! Great flavors!
Thank you! I'm so happy that you enjoyed this recipe!
We loved this! I made the sauce as written & loved it. I made it w/o the spice because off my 7 year old and it was still great. The pork was such a nice complement to the noodles.
I'm so happy to hear this, thank you!
Everything was great until I made the sauce without any water. Straight peanut butter and soy sauce was way too salty. I thinned the sauce with quite a bit of water and added cornstarch for a little thickening. I probably used less than a cup of the sauce on the meatballs and the meal was great. Thanks so much!
thanks so much for your feedback! I'm so happy that you were able to tailor this recipe to your liking!
