Chow Mein

IMG_0203
Ask any Aussie over the age of 30 how to make chow mein and they will probably recall the recipe their Mum made. It probably had mince steak, cabbage, chicken noodle soup and a few vegies. A friend and I were talking about chow mein the other day and that’s when we realised that our parent’s had used the same recipe. It was funny.

She told me about the recipe she made for her family the other day. It had a lot of vegies so it’s perfect for hiding them from kids.

This one is very easy to make. Step 1 is browning the mince steak, finely-chopped onion and garlic in a frying pan.

Step 2 – add chopped carrot, celery and capsicum (substituted for mushrooms). Cook for 5 minutes or until the vegies start to soften.
