Soy Sauce Chow Mein

Noodles, one of my favorite carbs. I grew up eating this as breakfast/lunch and we eat it along with plain porridge. A bite of the noodles and a spoon of plain porridge, just makes it feel like I’m eating right at home with the parents.

  • 1 package of chow mein
  • 2 stalk green onions chopped within 3 inches long
  • 1/2 onion sliced
  • 1 bag of bean sprouts
  • 3 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 10 cups of water
  • For the Sauce

  • 2 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dark soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon cooking wine
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper


  1. Boil 10 cups of water for the noodles. When water boils, toss in the noodles and cook for 1 minute then drain. Run noodles with some cold water to remove the starch and drain.
  2. Prepare the green onions, onions and beansprouts.
  3. Heat the wok over high heat with 1 tablespoon of oil. Stir fry onions, green onions and beansprouts for 2 minutes. Remove from the wok.
  4. Do not wash the wok. Keep the wok at high heat, adding 2 tablespoons of oil. When the wok turns slightly smoky, toss in the noodles. Spread the noodles evenly on the wok, so the noodles can crisp. After 15 seconds, flip the noodles and repeat.
  5. Repeat 2-3 times then add back the onions, green onions, and beansprouts along with the sauce.
  6. Make sure to mix well and that all the noodles are covered with the sauce. The noodles will absorb the sauce. Once the sauce is absorbed by the noodles, it’s ready to be served.
