My chow mian recipe is so easy yet delicious that I just have to share with everyone! At the end of a long day at work, I look forward to going home and having this simple dinner. It is warm, hearty, oily, and sinfully reminiscent of the glowing golden noodles at the hot foods bar at an all-you-can-eat Chinese buffet. You know, the ones with the names like China Buffet King.

If executed perfectly, this dish takes 10 minutes to make from start to finish. (!!!) Try it out!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 onion
  • bundle of dried noodles
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp canola oil
  • handful of peanuts

Directions:

  • Boil hot water and add in noodles
  • As noodles boil, peel and roughly chop onion (2 min)
  • Heat up canola oil in a pan, and stir fry the onions (Mmm, frying onions smell so yummy)
  • Add in peanuts to the onion pan and stir fry(5 min)
  • By now (~5-7min later), the noodles should be cooked. Rinse noodles with cold water.
  • Add the noodles into the onion/peanut pan, add in soy sauce and toss.
  • Stir-fry for 2 minutes, serve hot
  • Psst, it costs a total of 71 cents!
