A recipe is just a starting point and is not set in stone. Remember, the best thing about cooking is that you can improvise!

Ingredients for 2 servings:

  • 60 ml kecap manis (sweet soy sauce)
  • 1 Tbsp oyster sauce
  • ½ Tbsp aged soy sauce

  • 60 g cooked country ham
  • Vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp minced ginger
  • 35 g diced white onion
  • 45 g thinly sliced shiitake mushrooms
  • 30 g thinly shredded Napa cabbage
  • 1 carrot (cut into thirds and sliced thin, lengthwise)
  • ¼ bunch cilantro
  • 2 scallions (white portion, very thinly sliced)

How to make it:

1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
2. In a small bowl, mix together the kecap manis, oyster sauce, aged soy sauce, sesame oil and white pepper.
3. Cook the lo mein noodles according to the package instructions and set them aside to cool.
