Green Challenge Recipe 9 of 10 ~ Easy Chow Mein

This is in no way an authentic recipe, it is just my version of chow mein that I whip up at home and it gets DEVOURED!  It is pretty easy to make and is a great way to clear out some small portions of left over meats and veggies from the fridge.  I HIGHLY recommend using large non-stick coated post for this recipe.


1 lb Spaghetti noodles cooked
1 head napa cabbage sliced
1/2 med onion sliced
1 cup sliced ham 
(I used Farmer John deli style ham lunch meat)
1/8 cup chopped coriander or chopped cilantro
1 tsp fresh ground ginger
1/4 cup soy sauce
cooking oil
salt & pepper to taste


Cook noodles till just done according to directions on package.  Once cook, drain noodles.  Once all water is removed from pot, place back on burner and set heat to a med-hi.  Place noodles back in pot with, add a few splashes of cooking oil and stir to coat noodles.  Once noodles are coated, add soy sauce and stir until soy sauce has evaporated, leaving the noodles tinted brown.  Remove from heat and set aside.  In a second large pot, heat up some cooking oil and add onions, ham and ginger.  Cook for just a few minutes while stirring frequently.  Add cabbage and stirring frequently, cook until just wilted.  Add coriander (or cilantro) and salt and pepper to taste.  Once vegetables and ham are done, add to pot with noodles and mix together.  

If you are feeling adventurous, you can let the noodles sit for a few minutes till they are crispy/crunch, but not burned.  This is an easy recipe that can be done any number of ways with chicken, pork, steak, or even just veggies!
