Chow Mein Vs Lo Mein

Chow Mein Vs Lo 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 some time, I had been searching on the web the other day. On the lookout for fresh, fascinating ideas, inspirational meals that I have never tested before, to amaze my family with. Looking for quite some time yet couldn’t come across any interesting stuff. Just before I thought to give up on it, I found this fabulous and easy treat by chance at Suncakemom. The dessert looked so mouth-watering on its photos, that required fast actions.

It absolutely was not difficult to imagine just how it is made, how it tastes and how much boyfriend is going to enjoy it. Actually, it is extremely simple to impress him when it comes to treats. Yes, I’m a blessed one. Or perhaps he is.Anyway, I went to the blog and then used the simple instuctions that have been combined with superb graphics of the task. It really makes life less difficult. I could suppose it’s a slight inconvenience to shoot photographs in the middle of baking in the kitchen as you may usually have gross hands and so i seriously appreciate the commitment she placed in to make this post .

With that in mind I am empowered to present my own, personal recipe in a similar fashion. Many thanks for the idea.

I was tweaking the initial formula create it for the taste of my loved ones. I have to say it turned out a great outcome. They prized the flavour, the thickness and loved getting a delicacy like this in the middle of a busy workweek. They basically asked for lots more, a lot more. So the next time I’m not going to commit the same mistake. I’m likely to double the quantity to keep them happy.

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.
