Photos: to follow soon as i get them uploaded

Tips/Hints:
Extra veggies like celery or zucchini could be added with the carrot and capsicum.

Other suggestions.
1. I added half a big zucchini and a stick of celery as well and when the cabbage was added, the bowl for full to the brim.
Cooked okay though but it needed an extra 10 mins, and I also increased the speed to 2 in the final 5 mins as speed 1 wasn't turning it enough.

members' comments

VHJ - it was very nice. I will definitely make it again and might try adding some ginger with the onion and garlic. Thank you riv_mum.

JulieO - we thoroughly enjoyed it. I added half a big zucchini and a stick of celery as well and when the cabbage was added, the bowl was  full to the brim. Cooked okay though but it needed an extra 10 mins and I also increased the speed to 2 in the final 5 mins as speed 1 wasn't turning it enough.  Will be made again. Thanks for a great recipe.

Nay-nay - Made this with the added zucchini - sensational! It really makes a pot full - plenty of leftovers for lunch. I didn't have any oyster sauce and it still tasted good.

Carrie - gosh it was yummy. Thanks for the recipe riv_mum! Last time I made this, I used it as spring rolls filling. It was so tasty.


sue h - We really enjoyed this. I had some roast pork left over and shredded that before adding to the chow mein. It turned out lovely.

katesjoy - Was yummy on the night I cooked it and still yummy the next couple of days (it makes a family sized amount and l am just one person!).  My niece and nephew also loved it as a pie filling.  This recipe is now going in my "I've made it and loved it" folder.

Hally - I saw 300mls of water & thought that's a lot, added it anyway. Mine is very runny, have put it through a cullander & it's fine. Just way too much juice for me.

Yeah I do you shop bought sauce, even though it is full of lots of nasties! You could replace it with a bit of chilli and some vegie stock in water just to give it flavour.

Yum!
A great cook is one who can rustle up a fabulous family meal with some freezer burnt chops, wilted carrots, sprouting potatoes and cabbage that's gone brown on the cut edges.

I'm having a clean out of my folder which is filled to overflowing with recipes "I just have to try" and yet never seem to make.  So finally got around to cooking this.  Was yummy on the night I cooked it and still yummy the next couple of days (it makes a family sized amount and l am just one person!).  My niece and nephew also loved it as a pie filling.  This recipe is now going in my "I've made it and loved it" folder.

This is on my to do list. I will make it with pork mince, then will try beef mince.

The total cooking time for the meat is 7 mins, is this enough.

Thanks
