Peanut Butter/Sesame Noodles

I just made this, getting some hints from the forum and following the memory of my old photographer friend from Beijing, he made it with Miso instead of PB and threw in some scrambled eggs!

1 egg scrambled (dry), set aside

miso sauce
4T miso
2-3T sugar
4T tea or broth
mix and set aside

1 dried chili
1T garlic minced
1T ginger minced
1 hot green chili minced
1 small onion thinly sliced
a couple of dried shiitake, soaked, thinly sliced
other vegetables
(I used a few turkish peppers (like bell peppers but lighter and softer) and a minced carrot.)

heat oil in the wok, add dried chili, when it darkens, add shiitake, stir, add garlic, ginger, onions, fry until onions translucent, add fresh chili & other veg fry a bit, add miso sauce and the scrambled egg, add more liquid if necessary some soy sauce cook until veg are soft, add sesame oil at the end, toss with hot noodles, garnish with chopped fresh tomato green onions and roasted sesame
