PORK CHOW MEIN – This easy and my version of pork chow mein is made with noodles, pork slices and vegetables like onion, carrot, capsicum, cabbage and spring onion. Chow Mein means stir fried noodles. Pork chow mein is delicious, satisfying, and easier to make than you think!
Who can turn down a heaping bowl of chow mein? Pork Chow is one dish which can be considered as an easy to make simple meal or a dish which can be savoured in between the meals to kill the hunger pangs.
To make this chowmein you can use chicken breast in place of pork if you are not a fan of pork or egg or use seasonal vegetables for vegetarians.
I have grown up having this pork chow. So many fond childhood memories related to it. They served a heaping bowl of this pork chow with piping hot soup made of pork stock and spicy chilly chutney.
If you are making this pork chow you can make the soup and relish it along with the pork chow. I always make them whenever I make this at home. To make the soup, use the meat stock, a bit of cornflour slurry to make the soup little thick and add sliced cabbage, carrot, onion rings, spring onion greens and seasoned with salt, pepper and garnished with chopped coriander leaves. Viola your soulful piping hot soup is ready to be served with the noodles.
This is a great one-bowl meal, and I often enjoy eating it with soup, chilly tomato garlic chutney, vinegar chilly and soy dip or sometimes with some homemade King Chilly Sauce and tomato sauce.
This pork noodles can also be had with Raja Mircha Pickle/ Bhut Jolokia Pickle but this is not for faint hearted because of its extremely hot taste. It also goes well with Pork Pickle and Beef Pickle.
This pork chow is also a big crowd pleaser. Back home I often cook up a batch for mid-day meals and it was always a hit. It became a dish my family would specifically ask me to make for when I am there for holidays.
