Slow Cooked Chow Mein
I made a Chow Mein last night in the slow cooker, making an alternative to the wok!
Fair to say it really did turn out amazing and just like one from a Chinese takeaway so I thought I would share this with you too!
In the slow cooker throw in :-
1 red pepper
1 yellow pepper
1 onion chopped
As many bean sprouts as you like (i just emptied the entire bag full in)
2 chicken stock cubes to make up 500ml of stock
2 cloves of garlic
a good glug of soy sauce
1 sea spoon of Chinese 5 spice
1/2 tea spoon of pepper
1/2 tea spoon of chilli powder
1 table spoon of sweetener
2 tea spoons of chopped coriander
Put it all on low in the slow cooker for a couple of hours, can easily be done sooner on a higher setting.
Just 30 minutes before serving add 2 nests of noodles per person, 30 minutes is perfect I thought they might need longer but 30 minutes is just right!
You could easily add your favorite meat to this dish too!
I started Slimming World back in March this year, and cooking from scratch and having the right meals I have lost 2 stone 9 pounds so far in total! I am so proud of how far I have came with the support of my friends and family.

I hope you enjoy this recipe, it really does taste just like a Chinese Chow Mein that you would order from your local Chinese, I made plenty and gave some to my neighbours, they could not believe it and actually thought I did order it in!
Let me know if you try it.
