Meat Lo Mein

I got this recipe from Mishpacha, originally. Here is my version, in a time-efficient order, for 3-6 people.

Prepare a large pot of water and salt,  and bring it to a boil.


Brown 1/2 to 1 lb of ground beef in a large frying pan or wok.


While the meat is cooking, slice a yellow and purple onion, or more if you prefer, into thin strips.


When the meat if 95% cooked, drain it in a colander and leave it on the side until you need it again.


Saute the onions until they are soft.


While they cook, take a box of spaghetti, fettuccine, or another thin noodle, and break the noodles in half over a foil pan. As soon as your water has boiled, add the pasta.


Once the onions are soft, add 1/2 cup of soy sauce and mix.


Add in the meat, and 6 tablespoons of duck sauce, 2 garlic cubes, and a shake of ginger.


Take a packet of hot sauce and add in some of it. I don’t like my food very hot, so I use just about half, but you could use more.


Add a spoonful of salt and a heaping tablespoon of chicken soup mix.


At this point, your pasta should be nearly done.


Taste to check, and the drain.


Add to the pot.


Mix well and enjoy!


In summary:

16 oz fettucchini noodles, cooked
1/2 to 1 lb chopped meat
assorted onions and vegetables, chopped thin
1/2 cup soy sauce
6 tbsp duck sauce
2 cube frozen garlic
shake of ginger powder
most of 1 packet hot sauce
1 tsp salt
1 heaping tbsp chicken soup mix

Boil water, and when finished, add pasta. Brown meat, remove, and drain pot. Saute onions, add the meat and remaining ingredients and saute another five minutes. Mix with noodles.
