Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Chinese noodles are similar to ramen noodles; look for them in the grocery store in the Asian foods section.
  • tip 2
    Try ground turkey or chicken in place of the pork.
  • tip 3
    Ramen noodles, egg noodles or angel hair pasta can be used in place of the Chinese noodles.
  • tip 4
    To streamline the recipe, use frozen chopped bell pepper and onion, or try a purchased vegetable mixture for stir-fry.
  • tip 5
    Stir-fry sauces vary in flavor; after chow mein is finished cooking, taste it for seasoning and add a bit more sugar if desired.
