Copycat Panda Express Chow Mein

Copycat Panda Express Chow Mein

Everyone here loves Panda Express Chow Mein so when I found this recipe on Pinterest from “Eat Cake for Dinner”, I knew I had to give it a try and it was terrific!  Bob and Jaren even said they liked it better than Panda Express!

1/4 cup soy sauce

1 tablespoon brown sugar

1 – 2 cloves garlic, grated or pressed

1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated (I used about 1/4 teaspoon ground)

ground black pepper, to taste (I used about 1/4 teaspoon and that was a little too much)

2 tablespoons oil

around 15 oz (2 packs) Yakisoba Stir Fry Noodles (you can find these in the refrigerated section of the produce department)

2/3 cup celery, chopped diagonally (I used 1 heaping cup)

1/2 medium onion, thinly sliced (I used the whole onion)

2 cups (heaping) cabbage, chopped (I used 1/2 of a head of cabbage which was about 4 cups of cabbage)

1  In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, ginger and black pepper.

2  Remove noodles from packages, discard included flavoring packets, run noodles under hot water to help break them apart, drain and dry.

3  Heat oil in large wok or skillet.  Add celery and onion and saute for several minutes until onions are soft and transparent.

4  Add cabbage and saute another few minutes until soft.

5  Add noodles and soy sauce mixture and heat for an additional 2 – 3 minutes or until noodles are heated through.

Here are the Yakisoba noodles you’ll need:
