Reddit User Shares Simple Chow Mein Recipe For Under $10


A bowl of noodles never looked so good ... or easy.

Reddit user deemikel79 uploaded this incredibly simple step-by-step chow mein noodle recipe on Wednesday, including helpful pictures and a handy list of ingredients. The best part? It won't cost you more than $10. And although chow mein isn't traditionally made in a soup form, chow mein noodles were used to make this dish.

Chow mein are stir-fried noodles usually made with meats like beef or chicken and veggies like celery, carrots, onions and cabbage. Popular at Chinese restaurants, you can make them vegetarian, vegan or healthier if you make them yourself. Generally, 100 grams of chow mein has about 459 calories and 18 grams of fat, so if you want to avoid all that excess salt and fat, try making your own recipe (like this one) instead.
