  • ###### New wave users. Brown off the onion, bacon , minced garlic and spices. Add mince and break up while browning. Add all other ingredients and turn onto High Pressure and cook 10 mins. If it needs thickening then turn onto brown and thicken with cornflour, but the soup sachets thickened it nicely. Serve with toast or crusty bread rolls, or add rice noodles or noodles of your choice. Top with grated cheese (optional).

  1. Thank you so much Robyn! I don’t eat meat but hubby does and he absolutely loved this! I did a double batch and froze some which has been helping us out in times of economic crisis. He asked me to make sure I make it again when it is all gone. I couldn’t find the recipe which I had printed so have now re-printed.

  2. Thank you Robyn! I don’t eat meat but hubby does and he absolutely loved this! I did a double batch and froze some. It has come in handy in times of economic crisis. I have been told that when it runs out that I have to make some more!

    but can’t you just chuck it all in together in the slow cooker, I’m not into using more than one cooking thing

  4. I put all the ingredients straight into slow cooker as i didn’t have time to brown mince etc. It was amazing another favorite in our house?

  5. I made this yesterday for the first time and it will definitely not be the last! Perfect amount of heat and a good low carb meal. I did a double batch but I only put the two chicken noodle packs in and added some Bone broth powder. Absolutely superb.

  6. Hi I had this last night we really thought it was tasty but I went over board with the chilli and it was a bit hot will put less next time

  7. Great recipe!
    I skipped browning – added everything in together raw
    Grated the carrot instead of chopping
    Left out chilli & halved the water

    The whole family really enjoyed & it was a great easy meal with toast on a busy night 🙂

    Absolutely delicious !! Will definitely be making Chow Mein this way forever more 😀 I followed the recipe exactly but did add a couple of tablespoons of Hoisin Sauce. Serving with a French Stick if my partner remembers to bring one home 😉

    This recipe was so very tasty 🙂 I didn’t have enough cabbage in the house, but will rectify that next time.
    It’ll be a regular here and may even make some jaffles out of the left-overs if there are any 😉

    This was amazing lovely flavour and spices I added egg noodles at the end and served with garlic bread as I have 4 hungry boys to feed! I think I’ll double the recipe next time.

    Absolutely yummy, everyone enjoyed it. I didnt use the chicken noodle soup, just added a home made stock cube.

    amazing recipe, I did however tweak it some, I added 1 tsp Ginger to it and used vegetable stock instead of water, also chilli flakes not the powder. putting everything into slow cooker [ no browning} stirred halfway through the cooking.
    nothing else to say other than ” YUMMO”
