Chow Mein

We had a yummy, warm and satisfying meal last night, the nights are getting cold here and a salad just won't do. Serve this Chow Mein with lots of white rice - basmati or short grain.

2 teas olive oil
1 onion, chopped or grated
4 cloves garlic, chopped
500g minced beef
1 x 45g packet of chicken noodle soup
2 tab curry powder
2 tab soya sauce
3/4 cup frozen fresh peas
3/4 cup frozen or fresh string beans, cut into 5cm pieces
3/4 cup frozen or fresh corn kernels
2 small carrots, chopped into small pieces
1/2 small cabbage or 1/4 large cabbage, sliced thinly
2 cups boiling water

In a large pot add oil and when heated add onion, stir until slightly brown then add garlic and stir until fragrant. Add the mince and using a fork break up and cook with the onion and garlic until brown. Add the chicken noodle soup and stir. Add the curry powder and soya sauce and stir. Add 1 cup of water followed by peas, beans, corn and carrots, lastly add the sliced cabbage and the other 1 cup of water. Put the lid on and cook until cabbage wilts and softens. You might like to add more more for a more saucy dish. Serve with fluffy rice.

  1. Yummy... I would love to serve this with hot steaming jasmine rice, and a bit of chili sauce too.

    Regarding your question about "suet",
    I actually didn't use any suet for the pastry. I just used butter. I think lard might be the best substitute for suet. Let me know how's yours turn out.
