Everybody loves a Chow Mein, and this one is made especially easy by using our Satay Spices blend.
- 1 package (½ lb) chow mein noodles
- 5 oz pork shoulder or filet
- ½ cup shelled peanuts, whole
- ½ cup vegetable oil
- 2 garlic cloves, chopped
- 4 shallots, chopped
- 2 Tbsp nam prik*
- 2 hot chilies, finely chopped
- 1 Tbsp Satay Spices, ground
- 1 tomato, chopped
- 1 Tbsp brown sugar
- 2 Tbsp soya sauce
- 1 bunch garlic chives or green onions
- *Thai chili, soy and shrimp paste (you can substitute 1 tbsp fish sauce)
Cook the noodles for 2 minutes in boiling salted water. Drain and rinse in cold water. Set aside.
Cut the pork into short, thin strips (julienne) and set aside.
Heat the oil in a wok on medium heat and fry the peanuts until brown (1–2 minutes). Remove with a slotted spoon and reserve the oil.
Once cooled, chop the peanuts coarsely and set aside.
Heat the wok with half of the reserved oil, add the garlic, shallots, nam prik, chilies and spices. Cook on high heat for 1 minute.
Add the pork and sauté for 1 minute. Then incorporate the tomatoes, sugar and soya sauce. Cook for 1 or 2 more minutes.
Add the cooked noodles, and stir-fry for 2 more minutes.
Cut the garlic chives into 1-inch sections, add them to the wok along with the peanuts. Mix well and serve immediately.
