Chow Mein

Chow Mein

When I saw this Panda Express copycat recipe for their chow mein on Damn Delicious I decided to make it for dinner. My kids love the chow mein at Panda Express and I really like that I can now make it at home. This recipe was very quick to make and tasted amazing. These noodles paired nicely with baked teriyaki chicken and a snow pea sauté. Who needs Chinese takeout when you can make it at home?!

How to Make Chow Mein

Combine the soy sauce, minced garlic, brown sugar, grated ginger, and white pepper, together in a bowl; whisk until well combined. Set aside.

Heat the Yaki-Soba noodles in a pot of boiling water until loosened, about 1-2 minutes. Drain well.

Heat the canola oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and celery and cook, stirring often, for 3-4 minutes, or until tender. Add the cabbage until heated through, about 1 minute. Add the drained Yaki-Soba noodles and soy sauce mixture. Mix until well combined and evenly coated, about 2 minutes. Serve immediately. Enjoy.

  1. Looks great. In which section of the grocery did you find the Yakisoba noodles? Not sure I have ever seen them, but I would like to make this. My husband loves Panda Express, me not so much. 🙂

    1. Cathy,

      I found mine near the fresh pasta & tofu in the refrigerated section of my grocery store.

  2. Looks very good Pam. For most of my youth chow mein came from a can as did the crispy noodles we ate it over – I’m guessing yours is a little better 🙂

  3. i’ve never eaten chow mein, can you believe it? i think the best route might be to make it myself first, then branch out to take-out. 🙂

  4. And since you can reduce the salt in it when you make it home, that makes your chow mein all the better!

  5. I love chow mein. What a simple to the point recipe. I like how you photographed all the ingredients. I saw that and say easy peasy. Good jog.

  6. My girls LOVE chow mein and this looks easy enough for me to try. Thanks SO much for sharing. Just hope I can find those noodles!

  7. Yum! I hope you post the snow pea sauté recipe so I can create the entire delicious meal!

  8. Where’s my MSG? 😉
    Okay, I’ll throw some stir fried oyster mushrooms and shittake mushrooms in there to get it naturally. Great looking dish, Pam! I plan to make this, p

  9. Oh man, I haven’t had chow mein in FOREVER but now I really am craving it!

    OMG!!!! I made this tonight and my husband and I love love love it!!!! Thank you.

  11. I need to search for this immediately! My youngest son loves them. I use to prohibit him from eating it but when I read about its benefits, I learned that noodles are enriched with egg whites, which provide substantial amounts of riboflavin, niacin, folic acid, iron and thiamin. I just need to put the right ingredients so that it turns out as healthy as what I want. Thanks for the share, you never fail to give as tips and great recipe ideas.
