In This Recipe
Bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook noodles for about 5 minutes or until softened. Drain and set aside.
In a wok or frying pan, heat 2 tbsp. cooking oil and sauté the mushrooms over low heat for about 3 minutes until fragrant.
Add the mixture of chicken stock, Lee Kum Kee Panda Brand Oyster Flavored Sauce and Lee Kum Kee Hoisin Sauce. Bring to a boil.
Add the noodles and toss to coat with the sauce before adding beansprouts and yellow chives (optional).
Give the mixture a good stir. If it is too dry, add another 2 oz. chicken stock or hot water and simmer over low heat until most of the liquid has evaporated (about 5 minutes).
Adjust the seasoning to taste. Add cooking wine, pepper and Lee Kum Kee Pure Sesame Oil.
