Updated on April 12, 2011

My Pork Chow Mein Recipe Info

If you are looking for a tasty Chinese dish to make this pork chow mein recipe is the best. I have been making it for years and everyone I make it for just loves it.

The recipe itself is very simple. The preparation time is in chopping up the meat and vegetables but it is well worth it. This recipe is better than any pork chow mein I have had in a Chinese restaurant.

A lot of people I know like to eat Chinese food with chop sticks to get that authentic chinese feel. So make up a plate of pork chow mein and bring out the chopsticks. Its a fun way to eat a meal.

Trying new recipes is fun. Don't get into cooking boredom by using the same recipes over and over gain. You will not regret trying this pork chow mein recipe because it is very tasty.

The Pork Chow Mein Recipe

The Main Ingredients:

1/4 pound of butter or margarine

1 1/2 cup pork cut in cubes

1 medium onion cut up fine

1 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. pepper

1 cup celery cut in very small pieces about 1/8 inch cubes

1 cup hot water

1 can bean sprouts drained

The Sauce Ingredients:

1/3 cup cold water

2 Tablespoons corn starch

2 Tablespoons Soy Sauce

1 tsp. granulated sugar

Directions For Making Pork Chow Mein Recipe:

I like to use a large wok pan with handle that I have to cook this recipe in. Melt butter and sear pork and onion. Fry for about 5 minutes. Add celery, salt, pepper and hot water. Cover and cook for about 5 minutes. Add drained bean sprouts and heat to boiling.

Mix together the sauce ingredients separately and then add to pan until it thickens. Serve with steamed rice and crunchy chow mein noodles. My favorite are the La Choy crunchy chow mein noodles. They come in a bag or a can. 

This pork chow mein recipe serves about 4 people. If you cook for more people simply double or triple the recipe. For extra fun buy some fortune cookies to serve after the meal.
