To make a copycat version of Panda Express’ chow mein, gather ingredients such as spices, cooking wine and minced green onions to make the sauce for the dish, and serve it over prepared lo mein or Yakosba noodles. The recipe also calls for onion, cabbage and celery.
Make chow mein like Panda Express by whisking together 1/2 cup soy sauce, 1/4 cup sugar, and 2 tablespoons each cooking wine and oyster sauce. Add 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce, 1 chopped garlic clove and 2 teaspoons fresh minced ginger, 2 tablespoons minced green onions, and 1/4 teaspoon sesame oil. Set the mixture to the side.
Prepare 14 ounces of lo mein noodles or 2 packages of Yakosba noodles according to the instructions on the package. Drain the noodles.
Heat 2 tablespoons of vegetable, olive or other oil in a wok on medium heat. Add 1 large thinly sliced onion and 3 stalks of celery cut into 1/4-inch slices. Cook the mixture for three to four minutes or until the onions take on a translucent look. Stir in 2 cups of sliced cabbage, and cook until the cabbage heats through or around one minute.
Add the prepared noodles and 1/2 cup of the sauce mixture, stirring until combined and until the noodles heat through or around two minutes. Serve the dish immediately.
