Chow Mein

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 recently have a little time, I had been surfing on the web last week. In search of fresh, challenging ideas, inspirational dishes that We have never tasted before, to impress my loved ones with. Hunting for quite some time but could not come across any interesting things. Right before I wanted to give up on it, I came upon this yummy and simple treat simply by chance. It seemed so yummy on its photo, that called for rapid actions.

It was simple enough to imagine just how it’s created, how it tastes and just how much my hubby will love it. Mind you, it is very easy to impress the guy in terms of puddings. Anyhow, I went to the webpage: Suncakemom and then followed the precise instuctions that have been coupled with nice images of the method. It really makes life quite easy. I could imagine that it’s a bit of a hassle to shoot photos down the middle of baking in the kitchen as you may typically have gross hands so I sincerely appreciate the hard work she put in to make this post and recipe conveniently followed.

That being said I’m encouraged presenting my personal recipes in a similar way. Many thanks the idea.

I was tweaking the main mixture create it for the taste of my family. I have to tell you that it was a terrific outcome. They loved the flavor, the thickness and enjoyed getting a treat like this in the middle of a busy week. They quite simply wanted more, many more. So the next occasion I’m not going to make the same miscalculation. I am going to double the amount to keep them delighted.

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.
