ThisEasy Chow Mein Recipe is a great vegetable stir fry meal! Skip the take out and enjoy your Chinese food straight from the kitchen!

OXO provided me with a Stainless Steele Pro 12 Inch Wok + Cover from their new Stainless Steele Cookware line. I am beyond thrilled to have the opportunity to give this Wok a try!

Chow Mein from my local Chinese food joint is one of my weaknesses. I crave those boxes filled to the brim with noodle-y deliciousness!

For some reason it has never dawned on me to make Homemade Chow Mein Noodles. I guess I thought it would be a hassle to make. Or that it wouldn’t be as good as take out.

Jeez was I wrong! This is so simple to prepare and tastes 10x better than take out!

It definitely helps that I now have a high quality Wok to get my stir fry on!

I’ve never had much luck with woks. The ones I have used didn’t get hot enough and the vegetables ended up soggy.

I love OXO kitchen gadgets. And honestly, I am totally impressed with OXO Cookware.

Here are a few more features of the new OXO Cookware:

  • Heat-radiant aluminum core fused between two layers of stainless steel ensures even cooking from every side
  • Rolled edges designed for drip free pouring
  • Contoured handles designed to stay cool to the touch for a comfortable grip
  • Durable, all-metal construction allows cookware to move directly from stovetop to oven and broiler. Glass lids are oven safe up to 430°F
  • Works on all stovetops, including induction
  • Dishwasher safe

Add thisEasy Chow Mein Recipe to your menu. Don’t forget the chopsticks and fortune cookies for a true homemade take out experience!

And just in case you are wondering, here is what my fortune cookie said:

Your present plans are going to succeed.

Well that’s good. Because I got lots of plans for this coming year!

    My store only had the dry yakisoba noodles, I sent with other ones labelled “Chinese style noodles” or something like that. Hoping they work! They are unflavored.
