Today I prepared Mie (chinese noodles) with some colourful vegetables, ham and omelette stripes - I had some sort of Bami-goreng in mind.
For 3 persons:
- 150 g ham (lean), sliced into strips
- 3 eggs (had to use the up)
- 2 red bell peppers sliced
- 1/2 cup small green peas (frozen, heated up in the microwave)
- 1 bunch slender spring onions, trimmed, sliced
- 1 garlic glove, minced
- 1 knob ginger root minced
- 1 tablespoon red Thai curry-paste (for real Bami goreng it should be Sambal oelek - but I like Thai curry paste better)
- 1 tablespoon crunchy peanut butter
- a few dashes oyster sauce (may be subsituted with soy sauce)
- sesame oil
First I heated up the big pan with a little oil/sesame oil mix. I stir-fried the spring onions and bell peppers together with ginger and garlic and a tablespoon Thai curry paste until it became fragrant, reduced the heat and let the vegetables get a little softer - at this point I stirred in peanut butter.
Meanwhile I prepared a thick and fluffy omlette using 3 eggs and a dash water, salt and sliced the omlette into thicker strips.
I tossed the omelette and ham with the vegetables, seasoned with salt, oystersauce (it is very important to not overcook the ham and omelette so just mix them into the hot vegetables but don't stir-fry any longer).
I cooked the mie in salted water until chewy soft and tossed them (drained but still a little wet) with the rest. Finished.
