Ingredients:

  • 8 oz. steamed chow mein (Chinese noodles)
  • 2 oz. pork (cut into thin slices)
  • 5 shrimp (shelled and devided)
  • 3 garlic cloves (finely chopped)
  • 1/2 cup shredded cabbage
  • 1/4 cup shredded carrot
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce

  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Chinese dark soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 2 stalks scallions (cut into 2-inch length)

Method:

  • Soak the steamed chow mein in cold water for about 5 minutes. Rinse a few times until the water turns clear and the chow mein is soft.
  • Drain the excess water and set aside. (Don’t over soak the chow mein or the noodles will get limpy and soggy.)
  • In a small mixing bowl, mix all the seasoning ingredients. Set aside.
  • Heat up the wok with the cooking oil. Add in the chopped garlic and stir-fry until light brown or aromatic.
  • Add the pork and shrimp and stir fry until they are half done. Add the shredded cabbage and carrot into the wok and do a few quick stirs.
  • Add the noodles , the seasoning mixture and the water. Continue to stir until the noodles are well blended with the seasonings and completely cooked through.
  • Add the chopped scallions, do a few final stirs, dish out and and serve hot.
