Chow Mein

Whenever I would go to Panda Express growing up I always got the fried rice. Chow mein always looked so gross to me whenever my mom would get it. Since they changed their rice recipe a while ago (I actually have no idea how long ago it was haha) I decided one day a couple years ago to venture out and try the chow mein. Okay, normally I have a hard time saying that my mom knew what she was talking about ;) but she did. Chow mein rocks! I've never gone back to the fried rice and always get the chow mein now and trust me I have a hard time resisting the urge to tell them to just fill up the whole container and forget the main dishes.
This recipe is a great mock version of the Panda Express kind. It has the same ingredients, as far as I can tell, and it tastes just as good if not better.
It also comes together very quick so its an easy side to pair with your favorite dishes. I paired mine with some potstickers that I had posted about a little bit ago. SO YUMMY!
Anyway, enjoy!

This recipe comes from one of two food blogs that I obsess over. This one is from Damn Delicious. She is currently getting a cookbook in the works and I am stoked for it to come out!

1/4 cup soy sauce
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon brown sugar, packed
2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
2 (5.6-ounce) packages refrigerated Yaki-Soba, seasoning sauce packets discarded*
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, diced
3 stalks celery, sliced diagonally
2 cups shredded cabbage

1. In a small bowl, whisk together soy sauce, garlic, brown sugar, ginger and white pepper; set aside.
2. In a large pot of boiling water, add Yaki-Soba until loosened, about 1-2 minutes; drain well.
3. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add onion and celery, and cook, stirring often, until tender, about 3-4 minutes. Stir in cabbage until heated through, about 1 minute.
4. Stir in Yaki-Soba and soy sauce mixture until well combined, about 2 minutes.
Serve immediately

**Randi's Side Notes**
~ In my store the Yaki-Soba noodles are over in my produce area which has a little Asian section in it. It should be by where the wonton wrappers and egg roll wrappers are. There were many different flavors to choose from and I personally didn't discard the seasoning I saved it and used it for a quick seasoning for another dish I made.
~ The noodles are like a fresh ramen noodle but a little bit thicker.
