This Easy Chow Mein Recipe is a great vegetable stir fry meal! Skip the take out and enjoy your Chinese food straight from the kitchen!
OXO provided me with a Stainless Steele Pro 12 Inch Wok + Cover from their new Stainless Steele Cookware line. I am beyond thrilled to have the opportunity to give this Wok a try!
Chow Mein from my local Chinese food joint is one of my weaknesses. I crave those boxes filled to the brim with noodle-y deliciousness!
For some reason it has never dawned on me to make Homemade Chow Mein Noodles. I guess I thought it would be a hassle to make. Or that it wouldn’t be as good as take out.
Jeez was I wrong! This is so simple to prepare and tastes 10x better than take out!
It definitely helps that I now have a high quality Wok to get my stir fry on!
I’ve never had much luck with woks. The ones I have used didn’t get hot enough and the vegetables ended up soggy.
I love OXO kitchen gadgets. And honestly, I am totally impressed with OXO Cookware.
Here are a few more features of the new OXO Cookware:
- Heat-radiant aluminum core fused between two layers of stainless steel ensures even cooking from every side
- Rolled edges designed for drip free pouring
- Contoured handles designed to stay cool to the touch for a comfortable grip
- Durable, all-metal construction allows cookware to move directly from stovetop to oven and broiler. Glass lids are oven safe up to 430°F
- Works on all stovetops, including induction
- Dishwasher safe
Add this Easy Chow Mein Recipe to your menu. Don’t forget the chopsticks and fortune cookies for a true homemade take out experience!

*Find yakisoba noodles with the refrigerated Asian products or in the produce area near the stir fry veggie packs. The yakisoba noodles will be pre-cooked and will require soaking or microwaving. The yakisoba noodles are what makes this dish taste like take out. Do not use spaghetti noodles. Just don't.

This is a meal my family would love. I’m a big OXO fan too.
Love these flavorful noodles and veggies! I love my OXO pan, too!
My store only had the dry yakisoba noodles, I sent with other ones labelled “Chinese style noodles” or something like that. Hoping they work! They are unflavored.
They were the kind in the produce section, not dry.not dry ones.
