4 Steps to Cooking Delicious Chow Mein
Chow mein and lo mein are two of the most popular types of egg noodles Chinese. In this article, we’ll look at the difference between chow mein and lo mein, and how to make chow mein.
Both chow mein and lo mein are made with wheat flour, and the main difference between the two is the way they are cooked. Chow mein is made by stir-frying noodles with vegetables and meat and has a rich flavor. On the other hand, lo mein is made by cooking the noodles in a sauce, which makes them more moist and soft.
How to make Chow Mein?
- First put the noodles in the water and cook for 3-4 minutes, until the noodles are cooked through but still firm. Drain them and set them aside.
- Heat some oil in a wok or frying pan over high heat. Add the vegetables of your choice (we like mushrooms, cabbage, carrots, and sprouts) and fry for 2-3 minutes until they start to soften.
- Add the cooked meat (chicken, pork, or beef) and continue to stir fry for about a minute.
- Finally add the cooked noodles and mix well. Season with soy sauce, salt, and pepper, and keep stirring!
Making chow mein is a quick and easy process that anyone can do at home. All you need is a pot, some oil, and your favorite toppings. If you would like to know more about chow mein and lo mein, please contact Jolion Foods.
