Mi Goreng, also known as Mee Goreng, or Mie Goreng, is a classic stir fried noodle dish. If you ever visit Indonesia this is a dish you would see street vendors selling, similar to how we have food trucks and hot dog stands. Why is Mi Goreng so good? Well, it’s all about the sauce! A lot of the ingredients in the dish are classic Asian ingredients but when you pair it with the rich and thick sauce once you take a bite you simply have to go back for more!

How to Make Mi Goreng

Assemble your ingredients. For exact amounts see the recipe card below.

Prepare the noodles per their package instruction just before cooking. Be sure to remove the seasoning packet from the noodles.

In a wok or large skillet, heat 1 Tablespoon of olive oil over medium-high heat. Pour in your whisked eggs and swirl them to have a thin coat across the bottom. Cook for 1 minute and then flip and cook for another 30 seconds.

FAQs

Do I have to use chicken and shrimp?

Not at all! Feel free to use any protein you like, whether that is beef or tofu, or even no protein if you are just wanting veggies and noodles!

What is the difference between Dark and Light Soy Sauce?

Light soy sauce is your typical everyday soy sauce. This is what you get in restaurants and what is likely sitting in your fridge as well. Dark soy sauce on the other hand is thicker than light soy sauce and has a denser taste that is really only used for sauces for recipes.

If I don’t have dark soy sauce, can I use regular or light soy sauce as a substitute?

Technically yes, you can. However, keep in mind that there will be less overall flavor in the dish that would come from the dark soy sauce.

Can I make this a Vegetarian Recipe?

Yes! You can swap out the chicken and shrimp for Tofu or leave out proteins completely and you’re good to go!

Storage and reheating

You can STORE this recipe in an airtight container in your fridge for 3-5 days.

To reheat you can do so in your wok or large skillet with olive oil until everything has warmed through, or you can do so in your microwave until everything has warmed through.

I would not recommend freezing this dish.
