Homemade Chow Mein Recipe

Food Friday, Recipes

This very easy to make chow mein recipe is one of my most requested meals that I make at home! It’s packed with veggies and has so much flavor in every bite. Learn how to make chow mein that literally tastes better than Panda Express + it’s mom approved and that’s what counts!

As many of you already know, I’m busy working during the day and when it’s time to cook, I don’t always have 2-3 hours. Most of the time, it’s already 6-7pm, it’s getting late and I’m starving. Your girl needs a fast fix, so one of the dishes I resort to making is chow mein and this version is pretty quick to make and it’s got some veggies– delicious & healthy! If you’re local to San Diego, I buy a lot of my noodles from 99 Ranch Market.


  • 1 yellow onion
  • bean sprouts (2 handfuls)
  • 3 stalks of celery chopped
  • 2 cups of chopped white cabbage
  • sesame oil
  • Kikkoman soy sauce
  • fresh Yakisoba chow mein noodles (seasoning included)


  1. First, wash all of the veggies and let them drain.
  2. Then, chop the yellow onion, white cabbage, and celery stalks.
  3. Now prep the bean sprouts.
  4. Heat oil in a wok/ large frying pan over medium heat
  5. Toss the onions in and stir-fry for 1-2 minutes
  6. Add the veggies and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes
  7. Put the veggies aside in a bowl
  8. Add 1/4 of a cup of water and 1 tablespoon of sesame oil (follow instructions on the noodles wrapper)
  9. Now, add the fresh noodles and fry for 3-4 minutes
  10. Add the veggies back into the pan
  11. Add the seasoning packets
  12. Stir, stir, stir
  13. Add a tablespoon of soy sauce (Kikkoman is what I use)
  14. Stir, stir, stir
  15. Lastly, remove from heat and serve immediately.
