This was delicious! We used soba wheat noodles, subbed in chicken instead of pork, and added mushrooms to the recipe. I didn't have dark soy so I used all regular soy. We doubled both sauces, and you could probably even triple them if you're going to eat as leftovers. Will definitely make again.
Long Life Noodles
Any type of noodle—thin chow mein noodles to broad rice noodles to the thicker Shanghai wheat noodles—is a must at Chinese New Year's. However, long noodles represent a long unbroken life (so cutting them into shorter strands would symbolically shorten your life). Pull out your largest skillet or wok because this Asian recipe creates a full pan.
