Method:

Stir-Fry

Ingredients

6 ounces dried egg noodles, or 9 ounces fresh egg noodles
vegetable oil (about 1/4 cup)
3 garlic cloves, diced
3 candlenuts (substitute macadamia nuts, or omit nuts entirely)
1/2 tablespoon whole white pepper
3 to 4 ounces chicken breast, cut into cubes
3 to 4 ounces shrimp
4 tablespoons indonesian sweet soy sauce
5 ounces chicken stock
3/4 cup cut cabbage (about 2 ounces)
1 cup bean sprouts (about 3 ounces)
3 to 4 stalks of green onion, chopped
1 large stalk chinese celery, chopped (substitute celery or 3/4 cup fresh spinach)

GARNISH

shrimp chips
a fried egg
tomato slices
sambal or hot sauce

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a food processor or using a mortar and pestle, grind the garlic, nuts and pepper until it becomes a thick, natural peanut butter type textured, paste.
2
Heat cooking oil in a wok. Add the spice and garlic paste; once it is fragrant (very quickly – less than a minute), add the chicken.

Cook over medium heat until it is opaque; add the shrimp, and cook until done.
3
In a steady stream, pour the chicken stock into the wok. Add the cabbage and any vegetables that require a longer cooking time.

Reduce the heat to medium-low, and let it boil for about 3 minutes, stirring frequently.
4
Increase the heat back to medium-high, and add the noodles. Add the sweet soy sauce, and stir everything together.

Let the noodles cook for as long as you’d like: If you prefer them more wet, a shorter cook time, or you can cook them until they’re quite dry.
5
Once the noodles have reached your desired level of dryness, add the sprouts and greens.

Cook until the greens have wilted, just a minute or two.
6
Garnish with shrimp chips, a fried egg or tomato slices. If you prefer spicy, serve with a side of sambal or hot sauce.
