Bami Goreng (Indonesian Version of Lo Mein)

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by BatiksWindmillsAndT

My grandmother was born in Indonesia and growing up we awaited the next time she would make Bami Goreng- "Fried Noodles." She made it with pork, but since I no longer eat pork I substitute chicken here. This is the basic version. You can add any vegetable you like. I add tiny frozen peas and carrots for color, or red or yellow bell pepper thinly sliced using a mandolin.

This was a lovely meal, the flavor was really indonesian! I used wok noodle who "grow". Next time I will use the half amount of noodle or I would double the other ingredient.
Thanks for recipe!
