Ingredients

  • 1 ounce package dried lo mein noodles 10
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1/2 cup small head cabbage thinly sliced (1 )
  • 1 red bell pepper thinly sliced lengthwise
  • 1 red orange pepper thinly sliced lengthwise
  • 1/4 pound mushrooms stems discarded and caps thinly sliced, any variety is fine
  • 6 ounces snowpeas trimmed (I never trim mine, but you might want to), maybe about a cup and a half
  • 1 carrot peeled and cut into matchsticks
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sambal oelek optional
  • 2 tablespoons fresh ginger grated
  • 2 cloves garlic minced or grated
  • 2 cups cooked chicken sliced into bite-size pieces (optional, I made this with the chicken)
  • 1/4 cup chopped cashews for sprinkling, or peanuts
  • fresh cilantro chopped, for garnish

Instructions

  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the noodles to the boiling water and cook according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
  • Meanwhile, in a large, heavy skillet or wok (you want it big guys), heat the sesame oil over high heat. When the pan is hot add the red pepper, orange pepper, mushrooms, snowpeas and carrots. After about 3 minute add the cabbage . Stir fry for 2-5 minutes longer or until the vegetables have just begun to soften, but have not lost their crunch. This took me about 5 minutes.
  • While the vegetables cook combine the soy sauce, rice vinegar, toasted sesame oil, fish sauce, sambal oelek, ginger and garlic, Whisk to combine and set aside.
  • When you feel the vegetables are ready add the sauce and stir fry for a 2-3 minutes to cook the garlic and ginger. Add the noodles (and chicken, if using) and toss well. Stir fry for one more minute and then remove from heat. Serve immediately and garnish with chopped fresh cilantro and chopped cashews.
