Easy Noodle Stirfry/Fried Mee

Good evening, dear friends :D

It is very easy to cook a noodle dish – as long as you have any type of vegetables, meat, meat leftovers, prawns, fresh or dried noodles (like egg noodles, spaghetti, macaroni, rice vermicelli, flat rice noodles, kway teow…etc), you will be all set to go and your noodle dish will be ready in 30 to 40 minutes! Easy, huh?

My hubby was hungry during tea time yesterday and we didn’t feel like going out to buy some tea snacks, like curry puffs, and I thought of making a simple fried noodle with my leftover Siew Yoke.

Basically, there is no hard and fast rule about the perfect fried noodle and all you need to do is just put together your favourite ingredients. As you can see from the picture above, I have more greens in it than carbohydrates! :lol:

Here is the recipe to this noodles -

Ingredients -

4 dried spinach egg noodles, cooked until soft in boiling water, drained and mixed with 2 tbsps of sesame oil or any fragrant fried shallot or fried garlic oil, and 2 tbsps of soy sauce (the noodles will not stick together and are flavoured evenly by the soy sauce already)

Some Siew Yoke/Roast Pork, sliced (if you are using raw meat, slice it thinly and marinate with some soy sauce and pepper and a dash of sesame oil)

2 sticks celery, sliced diagonally

3 leaves of cabbage, cut small

1/2 a carrot, julienned

some sugar peas

3 pips garlic, chopped

2 tbsps oyster sauce

salt & sugar to taste

dash of pepper

chopped green onions for garnishing

3 tbsps of oil

1/4 cup of hot water


Method -

1) Heat up oil in wok or a non-stick pan until smoking slightly. Add in the garlic and cook until golden.

2) Put in the meat and fry for about 2 minutes, until aromatic. Put in the rest of the vegetables and stirfry for about 3 minutes. Add 1 teaspoon of salt. Continue stirring.

3) Add in the noodles and stir for about 3 minutes or so, until the noodles are hot and sizzling.

4) Add in the oyster sauce, stir to mix evenly into noodles.

5) Pour in the 1/4 cup of water. This is to let the flavours all come together and to make you noodles moist at the same time. Stir noodles for another 2 minutes.

6) Taste a bit of your noodles and adjust seasonings according to your preference.

7) Garnish with chopped onions and serve with fresh chopped chili or some chili sauce.

There, it was easy, wasn’t it?

Bon Appetit! :D

Easy & Nutritious Chinese Cabbage Stirfry

chinese-long-cabbage-custom.jpg

Good evening, dear friends :D

Here is the recipe for my simple vegetable stirfry – I like to keep my vegetable dishes simple to go with my other meat dishes and soup┬áserved with hot steamed rice for my Chinese dinner. You can use cabbage (the round or Napa or long Chinese types), long beans, french beans, kale, sawi, etc and just follow the basic method of cooking this.

The important points to note here are -

1) your wok or pan must be very hot with the fire set at high heat.

2) you must cover the wok or pan in the middle of the cooking, so that the vegetables will be steamed for a couple of minutes, cooking time is cut down and the nutritional value of the vegetables are retained…..plus the flavours get infused. :wink:

Chinese Cabbage Stirfry

Ingredients -

4 cups of Chinese Cabbage, sliced into 1-inch lengths

1/2 cup of carrots, julienned or cut into strips

3 cloves of garlic (more if you like as garlic is good for your health), chopped finely

2 tbsps of oyster sauce

1/2 tsp sugar

1/2 cup water

salt and dash of pepper to taste

2 tbsps of cooking oil

Method -

1) Heat up wok or pan over a high fire until the wok starts to smoke slightly.

2) Pour in the cooking oil……it will also get hot very fast, you have to watch it carefully.

3) Put in the garlic and stir until slightly golden.

4) Put in the cabbage and carrot and hear the loud sizzle in your wok – this is the fun part and very essential for Chinese stirfry.

5) Stir quickly to ensure even cooking and you will smell a wonderful aroma of the vegetables in hot garlic oil. Stir for about 2 minutes.

6) Add water, give the vegetables a good stir and cover the wok for about 2 minutes.

7) Remove cover and put in the rest of the seasoning. Turn off the heat and serve immediately.

Voila! Your Chinese Cabbage Stirfry is done! :D
