Whether you're cooking with rice or noodles, both match perfectly with all kinds of meats or vegetables. Here's my tried-and-tested Chinese la mien and kway teow recipe.

Cook Time and Yield

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 25 min
Ready in: 40 min
Yields: 4


  1. Heat small amount of oil in a pan. One at a time, fry beef meatballs, chorizo, and ham. Set aside.
  2. In the same pan, allow water and chicken cubes to simmer.
  3. Add the kway teow first, followed by the la mien. Wait until partially cooked.
  4. Add the fried meats back into the pan, along with the carrots. Add the garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper, and local seasonings (if any).
  5. Cook until liquid evaporates completely. Add the cabbage and mix well.
  6. Adjust the taste if necessary. Serve while still hot. Garnish with spring onion and lemon/lime/calamansi.

Tips and Techniques

  • Read cooking instructions for cooking each kind of noodle.
  • Adjust the water if needed to cook the noodles thoroughly. Some types of noodles require more water than others.
  • Add local seasonings such as fish sauce, soy sauce, liquid seasonings, saute mix, etc.
  • Replace powdered garlic and onion with fresh garlic and onion to enhance the aroma of the dish.
  • Turn off the heat before adding the cabbage. Make sure to completely mix in the cabbage and then cover the pan. The steam will finish the cooking without overcooking.
  • Use a tray for easy clean-up.
