Chinese egg noodles
2 packets
Ham
5~6 slices
Cucumber
1
Bean sprouts
1 handful
Eggs for the kinshi tamago

A pinch
☆Chicken stock
1 cup
☆ Vinegar
3 tablespoons
☆ Soy sauce
3 tablespoons
☆ Sugar
2 tablespoons
☆ Sesame oil
1 tablespoon

Steps

1. Make the kinshi tamago. Beat the eggs and add the ○ ingredients. Heat a little oil in a frying pan and spread the oil around. Divide the egg mixture into 2 portions and make 2 thin omelets. After it has cooled, julienne the omelets. This is the kinshi tamago.
2. Julienne the ham and cucumber into the same lengths. Quickly blanch the bean sprouts in boiled water (add 1 teaspoon of vinegar just at the end and drain well in a colander).
3. Cook the Chinese noodles. Run under water after cooking and drain really well. Combine the ☆ ingredients to make the noodle sauce.
4. Arrange everything on serving dishes and pour the sauce over. Done!

Story Behind this Recipe

This is my mother's recipe. This homemade sauce is much better than the soup sachet included in the noodle packet.
