Thai Peanut Noodles with Vegetables and Seared Beef

I love adding the crunchiness of Georgia Peanuts to my recipes. Whether I use them tossed in a salad, use them to crust fish or chicken, or incorporate them into a noodle dish, peanuts are an excellent way to add protein and flavor and texture to a dish.

My Thai Peanut Noodles with Veggies and Seared Beef is one of those great recipes that can be served hot, cold, or at room temperature, and makes for great leftovers!

You can even toss the noodles with some thinly sliced napa cabbage and shredded carrots and enjoy it as a tasty salad. Best of all, it comes together quickly in one pot, so clean up is a breeze.

Feel free to incorporate other vegetables or proteins. It is wonderful with shrimp or chicken as well. You can also make it vegan by excluding the animal protein all together or adding some seared tofu in place of the beef. Keep a bottle of Sriracha nearby for those who enjoy a little heat. Buen Provecho!
