Panda Express Chow Mein

40

When I ask my kids where they want to eat when we eat out, Panda Express is a common answer. They love the chow mein there. I kinda dig it as well. I also kinda really dig restaurant copy cat recipes. This one isn't an exact copy (if you ask me) but it's still awesome! There wasn't a noodle left over. And there wasn't a single complaint either. In fact, when the pan was empty, the kids who ate all their chow mein first started bribing the ones who hadn't finished.

1/4 cup soy sauce
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 (15 ounce) package yakisoba noodles (found in the refrigerated produce section)
2/3 cup celery, sliced
1/2 medium onion, thinly sliced
2 heaping cups cabbage (I used coleslaw mix)
In a small bowl combine soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, ginger and black pepper. Mix well and set aside. Remove noodles from packages and discard the included flavoring packets. Rinse noodles well, drain, and set aside. Heat oil over medium-high heat in a large wok or skillet. Add celery and onion and saute for 3 to 5 minutes, or until onions become soft and transparent. Add cabbage and saute another 2 to 3 minutes, or until soft. Add noodles and soy sauce mixture and heat for an additional 2 to 3 minutes, or until noodles are heated through. Serve immediately.
