Shamsher's Special Chowmein

What do you do when your own people don't give a shit about you?

You cook the best damn meal, eat it and stop feeling sorry for yourself.

There is a time in every man's life when he wants to do something special.

So, I decided to make my very own Special Chowmein because I love Chinese food and Jackie Chan movies.


100 grams boneless beef

100 grams boneless chicken

100 grams prawns

Cook the beef for 30 minutes in a pressure cooker otherwise it won't get tender properly and will be chewy.

Marinate the chicken with a pinch of salt, pepper and 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil. Keep it aside and don't look at it.

Vegetables are pretty much up to your choice. Here is what I got.

1 carrot

1 onion

Half a cabbage

Can of sliced mushrooms

The rest of the ingredients are

400 grams boiled Chinese egg noodle

1 tablespoon ginger garlic paste

1 tablespoon oyster sauce

1 tablespoon vinegar

2 tablespoon soy sauce

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon black pepper

1/4 cup chicken stock

2 tbsp oil

1 tablespoon sesame oil 

Add oil in a pan or skillet or a wok. Add  ginger garlic paste with the cooked beef and stir fry for 3-4 minutes.

Add the boneless chicken. Cook till the chicken is tender and then add the prawns.

Stir fry for 2-3 mins and then add the chicken stock, soy sauce, vinegar and the oyster sauce.

Now time to enter the vegetables. The hardest ones go in first. Which makes carrots and shrooms.

Now goes in the onions and cabbage. 

Add salt, pepper and sesame seeds(optional) with a tablespoon of sesame oil.

Stir fry for a minute again and then add the noodles and chopped sprin onions.


Chowmein is ready to serve.

Special Chowmein is ready. Really easy to make. Kinda hard to decorate but oh well. Put some sesame oil as seasoning to the chowmein and enjoy.
