Make this delicious dish at home by following this recipe.

  • Heat 0/5


  • Meat Marinade

  • Sauce



Chinese stir-fried noodles with vegetables and meat

I use Lucky boat #2 noodles as they are used in 99% of UK Chineses takeaways and restaurants. They can initially be expensive for a box (Approx £15) as they only come wholesale but this will make about 150 portions.

You could also sell them off in smaller amounts on eBay to recover the cost and maybe make a profit 🙂

I purchase from tradewindsorientalshop
