When I don’t have enough time to cook meal or I feel like being lazy, I will choose to cook Chow Mein (fried noodles).
1. Vegetable Chow Mein (蔬菜炒面）
Chop onion, shiitake,bell pepper and carrot into thin slices.
Heat the oil in the pan. Stir fry onion first.
Then add in carrot and shiitake. Stir fry for a while.
Noodles (I used udon, and noodles should be soaked in water till they get soft.) and bell pepper at last. Stir fry evenly.
Add in a little dark soy sauce and salt. Stir evenly.
Then add a little water. Because the udon is uncooked, so it should be braised for 2-3 minutes.
When the water is about to dry, add in some lettuce.
Stir fry till the sauce is dry.
2. Soy Sauce Chow Mein
Put udon in boiled water for three minutes. Then ladle them out and drain them.
Light soy sauce: 2 tsp
Dark soy sauce: 1 tsp
Salt: a little
Sugar: 1 tsp
Cooking wine: a little

Heat the oil in the pan. Put in cabbage slices. Stir fry for a minute or two.
Then add in cooked udon.
And the sauce.
Stir fry them evenly for 1 or 2 minutes.
And it’s done.
You can add a fried egg, if you like.
Just serve with soup and some easy snacks. That’s not bad for an easy and quick meal.
