  • Total Time 20m

Makes 8 servings


  • 1/2 pound flat, thin noodles
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 4 cups sliced cabbage
  • 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 2 cups sliced carrots
  • 2 cups green beans, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1 cup precooked ham or precooked bacon, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper


Cook the noodles in at least 1 quart of boiling water until they are just done. They should be firm to the bite, not soft.

While the noodles are cooking, heat the vegetable oil in a wok or high-sided sautepan. As soon as the oil is hot, add the cabbage, mushrooms, carrots, green beans and ham or bacon, and stir-fry for 2 minutes.

When the noodles are cooked, drain from the water and add to the wok. Stir-fry for 1 minute. Add the chicken stock, soy sauce and pepper and stir-fry for 2 minutes more.
