We always have noodles for New Year's Day. This is a very simple noodle recipe that we would typically eat for good luck and prosperity on New Year's day along with all of the ono foods that you would typically feast on. I love visiting friends and family and eating all of the different ono food!
1.5-2 Lbs Chow mein noodles
Sesame Oil to cover bottom of pan or wok
1 bunch green onions, chopped
2 each carrots, peeled and thinly julienned
1 package chopped cabbage or bean sprouts
1?2 Cup oyster sauce
Aloha shoyu to taste
3?4 Pound char siu, thinly sliced
1 Bunch Chinese parsley
sesame seeds, as needed
Heat sesame oil. Add yellow onion, carrots.. stir-fry for 2 minutes. Add char siu, cilantro (save some for garnish), cabbage/beansprouts...Add noodles over cooking ingredients and add alittle bit of water on the sides of the wok to creat a little steam. Start tossing noodles until all ingredients are evenly distributed in wok, add shoyu, oyster sauce and keep tossing noodles.
Garnish with cilantro and left over char siu. You can use just about any type of meat..sometimes we would add leftover teriyaki chicken or scrambled eggs, kamaboko...whatever you enjoy eating in your noodles!!
