In this video Chef David Bishop shows how to make Chicken and Beef Lo Mein. An interesting note ‚Äì ‚ÄúLo‚Äù in Chinese means stirred, ‚Äúmein‚Äù means noodles ‚Äì so, ‚Äústirred noodles‚Äù.
He demonstrates two different styles. The first one is an authentic Chinese style with chicken, noodles, vegetables, and Chinese sauces. The second one is made with beef, noodles, fresh vegetables, herbs and spices.
In the Chicken Lo Mein, the ingredients are marinated chicken, noodles, broccoli, julienne carrots, celery and green onions, soy sauce, plum sauce, hoison sauce, vegetable oil, ginger, and granulated garlic.
Brown the chicken in vegetable oil in a skillet. Cook it quickly and remove it to a clean bowl. Add some roasted soy oil and more vegetable oil to the pan, then add the carrots, green onions, and celery. Cook until just browned. Then add the ginger, granulated garlic, and broccoli. Cook for a minute and add the soy sauce, plum sauce and hoison sauce. Finally, add the noodles and put the chicken back in and season it to taste. This dish makes a beautiful presentation.
The Beef Lo Mein is done the same way. Fry the beef quickly on high heat and set aside in a clean bowl. Add more oil to the pan, then add the carrots, green onions and celery and cook just until browned. Add the granulated garlic, ground ginger, broccoli, soy sauce and noodles. Add the meat back in, and you have another very impressive dish.
