Chinese Noodle Stir Fry

The cabbage in the garden is ready! We have 3 heads that my husband planted, but one alone yielded about 6 cups. It tastes so wonderful. I luckily came across a recipe using cabbage and it is also Chinese themed. I love to make Chinese food at home to control the salt and oil content. Oh and the closest Chinese place is about 60 miles away!

The original recipe says this was inspired by the Panda Express Chow Mein. No idea?? I have never been there or seen one, but the ingredients sounded promising and I am always up for a little stir fry action.

Chinese Noodle Stir Fry inspired by this post at Blog Chef, I had a few small changes

Ingredients:
¼ cup soy sauce
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 garlic cloves (minced)
1/2 teaspoon dried ginger
ground black pepper (to taste)
crushed red pepper flakes (to taste)
dash of sesame oil
1 tablespoon olive oil
12 ounces chow Mein noodles (or thin spaghetti)
1 heaping cup chopped celery
1 medium onion (thinly sliced)
3 cups chopped cabbage

Cooking Instructions:
Step 1: In a small bowl mix together soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, ginger, black pepper, red pepper flakes and dash of sesame oil. Set aside. Cook noodles according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
Step 2: Heat olive oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Add celery and onion and stir fry for about 2 minutes. Add cabbage and stir-fry for an additional few minutes until it turns a brighter green.
Step 3: Toss the noodles and the soy sauce mixture along with the vegetables over medium-high heat for about 2 minutes until the noodles are heated through.
(Makes 6 Servings) Top with green onions, sriracha sauce, more soy sauce and/or sesame seeds. I served a chicken breast with this for my husband and on the side we had fresh stir fried veggies.

This was an instant hit and favorite that we both want repeated already and we have leftovers still. Good sign! I served mine as is along with some stir fry veggies. I like to use the steam packet of fresh stir fry veggies in the produce section at Krause’s and amp it up with any garden extras – today I had green pepper, green beans and cabbage. For some extra protein, add a grilled chicken breast to to noodle dish.
