Sunday evening is the perfect time for a fakeaway. Beef chow mein is super simple and only takes a few minutes. It’s tasty and filling and I bought all the ingredients in Aldi so it’s way cheaper than getting a Chinese. I thought I’d share this really easy recipe. If you are craving a Chinese but trying to lose a few lbs for the party season. This is the perfect Sunday evening guilt free comfort food. You can adapt this recipe with chicken or prawns to suit your own taste. 

Enjoy, and let me know if you try it. As I am using social media to grow my blog I’d appreciate if you can share my post. Thank you as always.
