Thai Style Chow Mein

5 / 5 (1 review) 3 Comments

I just got back from Maui (luckily we left just days before the tsunami!) and I have to say, the food there was the highlight of my trip! I won’t mention how much weight I gained in 6 days because you probably wouldn’t believe me, but that is partly due to this little restaurant called Aloha Mixed Plate. To. Die. For. Seriously I am still dreaming about their Kalua Pig Grilled Cheese sandwich w/ garlic fries. If you ever head to Maui, eat there. Trust me!

I wish I could find the top secret recipe for that sandwich, but sadly I can’t.  So for now this delicious recipe for Thai Style Chow Mein will have to do. I realize it is not a typical stockpile recipe, but it’s so yummy it’s worth it!  Plus, the Thai Peanut Sauce is so versatile you can use it not only in this recipe, but also as a delicious dipping sauce!  One of the best things about this recipe, besides how amazing it tastes, is how quickly and easily it can be prepared which makes it perfect for a quick dinner after a busy day.  This is also a great recipe to have the kids help with since they can mix the sauce while I am prepping the vegetables and tossing everything in the pan.  In fact, if I know that we have a jam packed few days coming up then we can easily make the Thai Peanut Sauce ahead of time and store it until I am ready to cook everything.  Have an especially crazy day?  You could easily prep the vegetables prior to dinner and have them in a plastic zipper bag or sealed container so you could pour them straight into the pan to saute and get dinner to the table within a matter of minutes!
