  • In a bowl, whisk the stock, oyster sauce, fish sauce, chile paste, soy sauce and sugar.

  • In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of oil. Add the bell pepper, jalapeño, garlic and Thai chile and stir-fry over high heat until fragrant, 2 minutes. Add the noodles and stir-fry until browned, 4 minutes. Add the sauce and toss over moderately high heat, until absorbed. Fold in 1 cup of basil and the tofu. Garnish with more basil and serve with lime wedges.

Suggested Pairing

For super-fiery dishes like these noodles, try a moderately sweet German Riesling to help mitigate the heat.
