    25 minutes

    Chow Mein was a favourite takeaway when I was young and now I am cooking it at home. Pork is combined with ham, cabbage and bok choy in a spicy sauce.

    1. Mix the noodles with the oil to prevent them from sticking together.
    2. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a wok over high heat. Stir fry the spring onions until fragrant.
    3. Add the minced pork and stir fry until cooked through. Stir in the ham, hot chilli sauce, soy sauce, salt, chicken stock powder and Shaoxing wine; mix well.
    4. Stir in the cabbage and bok choy then add the noodles and stir well to coat everything with the sauce.
    5. Pour in a little bit of water and cover the wok for 1 minute to allow all the flavours to penetrate into the noodles. Serve.


    Shaoxing wine can be found in Asian speciality shops. Alternatively, you can use dry sherry instead.
