  • #Chinese chow mein dishes are usually based on noodles, using more expensive ingredients in small amounts. This makes economical everyday fare.# Cook the noodles in plenty of boiling salted water for about 4-5 minutes. Rinse under hot water and drain thoroughly.
  • Heat the wok and add oil. Stir-fry the pork 4-5 minutes or until almost cooked. Add the carrots to the wok and cook for 1-2 minutes.
  • Add the red pepper and add the remaining vegetables, wine and soy sauce. Cook for about 2 minutes.
  • Add the cooked, drained noodles and shrimp and toss over heat for 1-2 minutes. Serve immediately. #TIME# Preparation takes about 20 minutes. The noodles take 4-5 minutes to cook and the stir-fried ingredients need to cook for about 5-6 minutes for the pork and about 3 minutes for the vegetables. #VARIATION# Use green pepper instead of red, or add other vegetables such as baby com ears, mushrooms or peas. #BUYING GUIDE# Dried Chinese noodles are available in three thicknesses. Thin noodles are usually reserved for soup, while medium and thick noodles are used for fried dishes. Pork and Shrimp Chow Mein Recipe-calories-Homemade-protein-carbs-meat recipe-nutrition
