How to make it

  • Prepare all veggies in large kettle
  • add broth and simmer gently covered for one hour
  • add cornstarch that has been stired into one cp of cold water.
  • gently cook til thickened.
  • In the meantime cook your rice in a rice cooker if you have one. Otherwise cook on stove top till all broth has been absorbed and rice is light and fluffy.
  • Fry wonton strips in hot oil (I prefer peanut)
  • Toss cashews in hot fry pan till toasty. A few minutes will do.
  • Serve chowmein over the rice or the chowmein noodles ( You can also use lowmein noodles if you like). Garnish with fried wonton strips and cashews. If you don't think this is the best chowmein you have tried I will be surprised, and guess what? It is a figure friendly meal. Hope you all enjoy

    This recipe sounds great! Where can I get the bamboo shutes? My husband loves them but I haven't seen them except for in Hawaii??

    Again, this isnt really chow mein. Mein literally means noodles. Chow mein has softer noodles, and lo mein has crsipier noodles. The only difference is how long you fry the noodles. Furthermore, chow mein is a high sear dish, there is NO slow cooking. Traditional wok temps are around 700* (although most electric woks only reach around 475-500*, and gas range-top woks in-home have around the same). So that should give you some idea. This dish may taste great, but if it doesnt have fried noodles it is NOT CHOW MEIN. I have to put a recipe up here I guess. Sorry to be the food definition police but I grew up in a chinese neighborhood and had traditional mein for many years, and later worked for a very hot chinese restaurant. Please try traditional chow mein recipes just once, I know you wont be sorry! Again, I am not knocking anything about this recipe except the title.
