Whenever we order Chinese carry-out, I usually end up getting lo mein. When I saw this post on Annie’s site, it looked so delicious, I couldn’t wait to try it. Very glad I did! It was a delicious dinner that came together in a matter of minutes. Not to mention, it’s pretty figure friendly! Any vegetables would be wonderful in this. I kind of used what I had on hand. Also, I cannot wait to try it with Chinese roasted pork (you know – the red tinted stuff?). I’ve seen it at my local grocer, have wanted to try it, but just wasn’t quite sure what to do with it. Now I know!

I sort of had a hard time finding the lo mein noodles. Chances are you will find them in the International or Asian aisle of your supermarket. It seems to be hit or miss! You could use spaghetti noodles, but semolina pasta doesn’t absorb the sauce as well. I was shocked how much soy sauce goodness that these babies absorbed. It really was delicious!

This was plenty for myself and my husband, with a small portion leftover for leftovers. If you’ve got more than 2 folks to feed, I’d double the recipe.

    Ahhh this is my biggest problem! Finding lo mein noodles has proved to be difficult. This recipe looks delicious though. Perhaps I can modify it to something else (like you said, spaghetti)…

    So colorful and vibrant!! I’m jealous of this pork you mentioned. My market is so small-town and we having nothing special like that. This dish sounds wonderful and delicious.

    It was a VERY tough search to find a good and trustworthy lo mein recipe. I gave yours a try and oh to the mg…it is amazing!! Stupid me forgot the meat (was going to use lean chinese sausage) but the flavors are all there.
