Step 1: Preparing Your Mise en Place• 3 slices ginger
• 3 to 5 cloves garlic (1 tbsp)
• 2 cups Chinese barbecued pork (8 oz)
• 4 cups bean sprouts (8 oz)
• 2 tbsp soy sauce
• 1 tbsp oyster sauce
• 1/2 tsp sea salt
• 1 tbsp Shao Hsing rice wine (or dry sherry)
• 2 green onions
To prepare your mise en place, first prepare the sauce by combining the soy sauce, oyster sauce and salt in a bowl. Set aside.
Next, smash the ginger slices with your knife and mince the garlic. Slice the green onions in half vertically and then into 2" -inch pieces. Wash and spin dry the bean sprouts. Measure out the Shao Hsing rice wine into a small container. Cut the pork into matchstick pieces and set everything aside.
Step 2: Preparing the Chow Mein Noodles• 12 oz chowmein noodles
• 1 tbsp peanut oil
To cook the noodles, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the noodles. Once boiling, cook for approximately 3 minutes (or according to the directions on the package) or until the noodles are almost entirely cooked through. Once done, drain the noodles into a colander and rinse with cold water. Drain well to remove the excess water. Place the oil into the pot and add the noodles. Toss to coat with the oil.
Step 3: Stir-Frying the Chow Mein• 1 to 2 tbsp peanut oil
To stir-fry the dish, line the ingredients up in the proper cooking order. Heat a wok over high heat. Once hot, add the oil, followed by the ginger, garlic and pork. Stir-fry for a minute or so to heat the pork through, being careful not to burn the aromatics.
Next, add the bean sprouts and Shao Hsing rice wine. Toss and stir-fry for about 30 seconds or until the bean sprouts just begin to soften. Add the sauce, noodles and green onions. Stir-fry for another 1 to 2 minutes until the noodles and ingredients are completely heated through and evenly coated with the sauce. Serve immediately.
