Chow Main Noodles

Is migration a blessing or a curse? Let’s make a bowl of Chow mein and see how the world has changed since the first!

As I most recently have some time, I had been searching on the web a few days ago. Trying to find fresh, intriguing tips, inspiring meals that I’ve never tasted before, to impress my loved ones with. Looking for a while yet could not discover too many interesting stuff. Right before I thought to give up on it, I stumbled on this yummy and easy dessert simply by chance. It seemed so scrumptious on its photos, it called for quick action.

It was not so difficult to imagine just how it’s made, how it tastes and how much my hubby is going to want it. Actually, it is very simple to please him in terms of treats. Anyway, I got into the blog: Suncakemom and then followed the simple instuctions which were coupled with wonderful pics of the task. It really makes life much simpler. I can imagine that it’s a slight hassle to shoot pics in the middle of cooking in the kitchen as you may will often have gross hands and so i pretty appreciate the time and energy she put in to make this post and recipe easily implemented.

That being said I am encouraged presenting my own, personal recipe in a similar fashion. Thanks for the concept.

I had been tweaking the initial formula create it for the taste of my family. I must say it turned out a great success. They prized the taste, the thickness and enjoyed having a sweet such as this in the middle of a stressful workweek. They quite simply requested lots more, more and more. So the next time I’m not going to make the same mistake. I’m likely to twin the amount .

Measure soy sauce, Chinese cooking wine, roasted sesame seed oil and oyster or Hoisin sauce into a bowl and mix everything together. Add black ground black or white pepper too if desired.

Chow Mein – crispy noodles

Heat oil in a skillet, add the sliced or diced garlic and saute until the garlic starts to smell, for about a minute.

Add the meat and sear both sides of it until golden brown spots start to appear for about 3 minutes each side.

Remove the garlic and meat then mix in the shredded carrots and cabbage.

Stir fry until the cabbage collapses about a quarter of its size, for about 5 minutes.

Add back the chicken and garlic then add in the sliced green onion too.

Mix in the sauce and pour in a cup of water or stock too. Dissolve a tablespoon of cornstarch in the water beforehand if thick sauce is desired.

Heat oil in a skillet and deep fry the Chow Mein noodles until golden brown. Don’t need to use too much oil for this but make sure to flip the noodles halfway through the frying so both sides get fried properly. Also we can spray the noodles with oil and bake them in the oven but that takes an eternity while frying them takes about 1 minutes per side.

Let the fried Chow Mein noodles to drip of excess oil. Top it up with the cabbage and chicken then spoon sauce on top as desired.
