Equipment

It is important to have a wok for the preparation of this wonderful, Chinese noodle side dish.

Ingredients

 

For the Noodles:

 

1 ½ cups of chopped Duck meat -- using duck that has been roasted in the Duck Roasted in a Chinese Style with Plum Sauce (which recipe you can easily access by clicking that title) and using pieces from the duck breast and duck thighs

2 tablespoons of Duck Fat (whenever a duck is roasted, retain the juices and once they are refrigerated, the fat will separate from the juices, which can be saved and used in other recipes such as this one)

2 Chinese sausages, chopped

ChineseSausage

 1 cup of Bean Sprouts

1 cup of Shitake Mushrooms, sliced into quarters

2 cloves of Garlic, minced

3 Green Onions, coarsely chopped

For the Duck and Plum Sauce:

 

⅓ cup of the Duck Broth, reserved from roasting the Duck Roasted in a Chinese Style with Plum Sauce (which recipe you can easily access by clicking that title), or Chicken Broth can be used as a substitute

¼ cup of Plum Sauce for a Chinese-Style, Roasted Duck (which recipe you can access by clicking that title)

2 tablespoons of Soy Sauce

1 tablespoon of Rice Wine Vinegar

½ teaspoon Garlic Chili Sauce

¼ teaspoon of Chinese Five-Spice Powder

 

For the Garnish:

 

2 tablespoons of Cilantro, chopped

¼ cup of Plum Sauce for a Chinese-Style, Roasted Duck (which recipe you can access by clicking that title)

Directions

 

In a bowl, mix all the ingredients for the sauce with a whisk them until they are fully incorporated.  Set the combined ingredients near your wok.  Put a large sauce pan of water on the stove and bring the water to a boil.  Put all of the ingredients for the noodles near the wok. Once you get started, this recipe will move very quickly.  Once the water is boiling, place the Lo Mein noodles into the boiling water and cook them according to the instructions on the package.  (Commonly, the noodles take about 5-6 minutes.)  Once these are cooking, start your wok and add the 2 tablespoons of duck fat.  Once the fat is hot, add the sausages and use your wok spatula to move the sausage around in the wok, then add the garlic and onions, and cook them for a few minutes moving the food around in the wok with the wok spatula. Add the mushrooms and cook them for another few minutes.  Add the duck as well as the bean sprouts and continue to move the food around in the wok.  As soon as the noodles are done, drain them and put them into the wok along with the sauce.  Continue stirring the food in the wok until everything is fully integrated for another minute or two.  Put the noodles in a bowl and garnish them with the cilantro and the plum sauce and serve them.
