Stirfry ChowmeinSubmitted by: CHIREELS
Yellow Noodle Chow mein, 8 oz
Mixed Vegetables, frozen, 1.5 package (10 oz)
Onions, raw, 1.5 cup, sliced
Chicken Breast, no skin, 200 grams
Shrimp, raw, 200 grams (optional)
Olive Oil, 3 tbsp
Soy Sauce, 4 tsp
Fish Sauce, .5 tbsp
Minced Garlic (Spice World), 2 tsp
Corn Starch, .17 cup
Granulated Sugar, 6 tsp
Prepare sauce mixing all ingredients (except water and cornstarch) well. Make a liquid paste with water and cornstarch and add to sauce. Set aside for later.
Heat the pan first, then add 1 tbl of olive oil. When the oil is hot, add garlic, and stir-fry for a few seconds, or until you smell it.
Add the meats in and cook completely first, remove and set aside (adding it back in at the end). (This works well for a large assemblage of ingredients, because you ensure the meat cooks fully but not too much.)
Then add 1 tbl olive oil heat and add onions. Cook onions for approximately 2 min. Then add frozen vegetables. Cover and steam for 5-10 min or until tender.
If using raw vegetables you'll need to stagger additions to the stir-fry according to how long they take to cook. (For example, you'd add onions first, and stir-fry for about 2 minutes, then add broccoli florets and stir-fry for 3 to 4 minutes, then add red bell pepper and stir-fry for 2 more minutes, etc.)
Add meats back in with vegetables stir together. When the food is about two-thirds done, add your sauce. If the food will take more than a few minutes more to cook, cover and steam until done. Remove from wok, set aside
Add 1 tbl of olive oil to wok add noodles and stir-fry for about 3 minutes or until completely heated.
Stir together the meat-vegetable with noodles, or serve vegetable/meat mixture over noodles.
