Samoan Style Chop Suey (Sapasui)

Another dish inspired by our trip to Samoa. This one has loads of Asian influence - so it's not foreign to me..he..he....

You will need:
2 small bunches of Bean Vermicelli (about 100 grams), soaked in warm water for a few hours and drained
250 grams chicken meat, cut into small strips
1/2 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 carrot, julienned
2 small bunches of spinach, chopped
1/4 head of Chinese cabbage, chopped
2 tablespoons oyster sauce
2 tablespoons Japanese Soy Sauce ( I used Kikkoman sauce)
2 teaspoons Kejap Manis
Oil for frying

Marinate chicken in oyster sauce and set a side. Add oil in a wok over medium high heat, fry onion and garlic until fragrant. Add chicken, stir well until cooked, add carrot and fry further for a minute. Add cabbage and spinach, turn quickly until wilted then add vermicelli. Season with soy sauce and Kejap Manis, stir well. Fry until soft and cooked through. I like my vermicelli well cooked so that it will not give me indigestion. Add a round of freshly milled white pepper and serve warm. Yum, yum.

Note: This portion is enough for 2 if you have more than 1 dish.
