Budget Mince Chow Mein

A low-cost take on the classic chow mein.

  1. Fry the onions in a pan until brown.
  2. Add the mince to the pan and brown. Cover with enough water to simmer.
  3. Add the mushroom, garlic, chicken stock and the curry powder. Mix well.
  4. Put the whole packet of mixed veges and the pieces of cabbage (cut finely) into the mix.
  5. Lastly add the chicken noodle soup and cook for about 10 minutes - until the veges are cooked.
  6. Serve with rice or over noodles.
