Now you can have some Panda Express at home for the fraction of a price as this Chow Mein recipe (copycat) tastes way much better than the original. In this recipe, I used the thick noodles (fresh) which you can find in any Asian market.

Par boil all the vegetables except for the mushrooms.
For the Mongolian Sauce:
In a separate container, prepare the sauce. Put all the ingredients and mix well. Set aside.
For the Main Dish:
In a large skillet (or wok), set over medium heat and add vegetable oil. Once the oil is hot, lightly saute 1 tsp mince garlic and add the marinated beef. Stir until the beef is cooked and then add mushrooms + cashew nuts.
Pour the par boiled vegetables and stir continuously so the bottom does not get burn.
Once everything is sizzling hot, add the thick noodles and ½ of the Mongolian sauce. Pour ½ cup of water around the side of the wok and combine with all the ingredients. Keep stirring until the sauce thickens.
Add the remaining ½ of the Mongolian sauce. Keep stirring until the thick noodles are cooked. Sprinkle the cooked Chinese sausage and add more cashew nuts if needed.
Garnish with scallions or cilantro and serve hot!
