Mee Goreng

WARNING: This recipe is highly addictive and may make other favourite foods seem bland.

Dedicated to all of my Malaysian friends in Asia and abroad who helped me put together this recipe. Thank you.- Jay Shapiro



      Mee (if you can get it)

        -In Canada the best I could find was a pasta called 'Buccatini'

          which was a little thicker than spaghetti, but hollow inside.

      1 cooking onion

      Garlic (Powdered or Au Natural)

      2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

      Prawns (if you can afford them)

        -In Canada I used frozen/pre cooked shrimp from the grocery.

      2 Lg Eggs

      Oyster Sauce

      Chilli & Garlic Sauce (good stuff!)

      Soy Sauce (Pick your favourite I use Lite stuff)


        -I used:Chinese Brocolli, Snow Peas, Bean Sprouts, & Green Beans


 Slice/Dice the vegetables into what size shapes you prefer & set aside

 Scramble the 2 eggs in a bowl & set aside

 Chop the onions and Garlic

 Boil the Mee/Pasta in a pot. Cook to taste


 Slice the chicken into thin strips.

 Put some oil and the onions & Garlic in a wok. Heat the oil

 Cook the chicken in the wok. Do not over cook, they have to go back in later.

 Add a little of the chilli sauce to cook in the flavour and keep the 

   chicken from drying out.

 Remove the chicken and keep warm.

 If you need to cook the prawns, now would be the time, in the wok.

 Set aside the prawns with the chicken & keep warm.

 Cook the scrambled eggs in the wok, so that they are very thin and 

   fragmented. (flip them around a lot, and rotate the wok)

 Add the vegetables with some oil & Soy sauce, stir fry until ready.

 Strain the Mee/Pasta, Run under hot water to remove some of the starch.

 Keep Pasta warm.

 Add the chicken and prawns back into the wok.

 Add a little oyster and chilli sauce to cook into the mix.

 Add the Mee/Pasta into the wok, and mix it all up.

 Add the Oyster & Chilli sauces to the mix, according to taste.

   (I put in tons of Oyster and a fair bit of the chilli)

 Serve (with LOTS of water or beer!!)


 I hope that everyone enjoys this recipe as much as I did!

 Now if anyone has a good recipe for Roti John or 'John Bread' please 

send that to me, its my next big craving!

  Good Luck
