Chow Mein

November 26, 2009

I love chow mein, it’s my favourite Chinese dish. I know it’s something simple, but it’s my favourite. I prefer it as a chicken dish. But I do like it as a beef dish as well just have a preference – doesn’t everybody?

I am not even sure what it is that I like about it, obviously it is to do with the flavour. But there should be more to it than that, shouldn’t there? Perhaps not really, if you think about why you like most things it usually boils down to “because it tastes good” so that should be enough!

I think Chow Mein tastes good!

Chow Mein

1T vegetable oil
500g lean beef mince
1 medium brown onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic
1T curry powder
1 large carrot, chopped
2 trimmed celery stalks, sliced thinly
150g mushrooms, sliced
1 cup chicken stock
1/3 cup oyster sauce
2T soy sauce
450g noodles
½ cup frozen peas
½ cup frozen green beans
½ small wombok, shredded

Heat oil in wok; stir-fry mince, onion and garlic until mince is changed in colour. Add curry powder, stir-fry until fragrant. Add carrot, celery and mushrooms stir-fry until vegetables soften.
Add stock, sauces and noodles, stir-fry gently until combined; bring to boil. Add peas, beans and wombok, reduce heat; simmer uncovered tossing occasionally for about 5 minutes or until vegetables are just soft.
