Heat the oil in a frying pan and add the beef mince and chopped onion.
Sauté until the mince has browned and the onion has softened, approx. 5 minutes.
Add the garlic, ginger and curry powder and cook until fragrant, approx. 1 – 2 minutes.
Add the carrots, cabbage, water, vegetable stock powder, oyster sauce and soy sauce and stir-fry for 2 – 3 minutes.
Meanwhile, prepare the noodles according to the packet instructions.
Drain the noodles and add it to the chow mein and stir to combine.
Cook this mixture for a further 1 minute.

*You can substitute the beef mince for chicken, pork or lamb mince. Alternatively you can use sliced chicken breasts instead.
* I used pre-packed coleslaw mix.
*I used 2 minute noodles instead.
