Maybe it was just my family, but I remember the mainstay of takeaway Chinese food in the 60's and 70's was Chicken Chow Mein. With the discovery in our pantry of a packet of friend noodles yesterday, I thought it was about time I tried cooking it myself.
I followed this recipe, which was pretty straight forward, and used pork instead of chicken. (I also used a full onion - I remember most takeaway chinese uses a lot of onion in the vegetable mix.)
The result was pretty good. Nothing fancy, but had that old childhood comfort food feel about it.
For my future reference:
