FOOD, My recipes, Uncategorized HOMECOOKED MEE GORENG 3 July 2006

Made some Mee Goreng tonight, thanks to ‘s recipe! A bit improvised though, as I had random stuff around the fridge that I wanted to get rid of 😛 It was tasty, but not as super-flavourful as the Makan & Alice’s version, so I’m thinking they might have added MSG or something? I tried to make mine as healthy as possible.. so apart from the crazy amount of egg (I put 5 eggs in and the dish would make 4 servings) I think it was pretty healthy – at least I hope so 😉


Mee Goreng


Mee Goreng (serves 4)

500g cooked hokkien noodles

        I made it! It was pretty good except I didn’t have a few of the ingredients I thought I had…like dark soy, fresh garlic and fish sauce..heh. Instead I used Terryaki, garlic powder and chicken stock, still quite tasty though. Thanks Bev!

    The recipes and all are great, but could you just send me the food instead. It all looks so good. You should write a food column. Tell eBay you want to write a food column on their website. 🙂

    Or write a book.

    Yours looks so much healthy than mine. 🙂

    It is a good idea to omit the Beancurd. Potato and beancurd is not a good combo, in my opinion. Too filling for the stomach.

    MSG does alot of wonders to food. We don’t use MSG at home too.
    Or it could be the prawns that added the flavour to the Mee Goreng?

      I didn’t have beancurd and couldn’t be bothered buying some, hee! Oooh mine DID have prawns, I forgot to add it in the recipe 😉 Only a few prawns though, I underestimated the number I needed 🙁
      Thanks for the recipe, it was yum!
