Chow Main Recipe

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 lately have a little time, I was searching on the internet yesterday. In need of fresh, interesting thoughts, inspirational meals that I have never used before, to impress my loved ones with. Looking for a long time yet couldn’t come across too many interesting stuff. Right before I thought to give up on it, I discovered this scrumptious and simple treat by accident on Suncakemom. The dessert looked so delicious on its image, that required urgent actions.

It was easy to imagine the way it is made, its taste and just how much boyfriend will probably like it. Actually, it is extremely simple to impress the guy in terms of desserts. Anyway, I got into the webpage and simply used the simple instuctions that had been coupled with great graphics of the task. It just makes life much simpler. I could imagine that it’s a bit of a inconvenience to shoot snap shots in the midst of baking in the kitchen as you may will often have sticky hands so that i pretty appreciate the time and effort she placed in to build this blogpost and recipe conveniently implemented.

With that said I am encouraged to present my own formulas in a similar fashion. Thanks for the thought.

I was fine tuning the main formula create it for the taste of my family. I have to say it was a great success. They enjoyed the flavour, the overall look and enjoyed getting a sweet like this in the midst of a busy week. They ultimately wanted more, many more. Hence the next occasion I’m not going to commit the same mistake. I am going to multiply the quantity to keep them pleased.

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.
