Chow Mein

My hubby makes a good pork chow mein so I decided to write the recipe down so I'd know how to make it too.

Chow Mein

1-2 carrots
Half a head of cabbage
½ a large onion
12 oz. pork sirloin chops, thinly sliced
1 Tablespoon (combined) coconut oil
1/2 teaspoon (combined) sesame oil
Garlic salt to taste
Pepper to taste
Onion powder to taste
1 - 8 oz. Package Chow mein noodles
¼ cup soy sauce

Wash and peel the carrots. Cut into match-stick pieces (the smallest setting on a mandolin). Wash the cabbage and chop it up into bite-sized pieces. Start a large pot of water boiling.

Put ½ Tablespoon of coconut oil and ¼ teaspoon sesame oil in a large sauté pan or wok and heat on medium heat. Add pork and season it generously with garlic salt, pepper, and onion powder. Cook until done. Remove from pan.

Add ½ Tablespoon coconut oil to the same pan and ¼ teaspoon sesame oil. Turn heat up to medium-high and add carrots, cabbage, and onion to pan. Season with garlic salt and pepper. Cut the pork into bit-sized pieces while the veggies cook.

When the veggies are soft and the water is boiling, add the noodles to the water and boil 1-2 minutes. Drain noodles and set aside. Once veggies are fully cooked, move them to the side of the pan and add the cooked pork and noodles to the middle of the pan. Mix it all together and heat thoroughly. Add soy sauce, mix and enjoy.

This was delicious.....we just had it tonight. A few alternations....I had chicken, not pork. I added some celery and slice canadian bacon. Husband mentioned twice while eating how flavor-able and delicious!
A keeper! Thanks!
