How to Make The Best Chinese Lo Mein ~ Chinese Food Recipe

Posted on

Lo mein is another one of my all-timefavorite chinese meals.

It is so quick, easy and delicious! I'mTess and welcome to my kitchen.

I buy my Lo Mein noodles at my localAsian grocery store.

I buy them frozen and thaw when I'mready.

This is a pound of Lo Mein noodles.

They come in very long strands so Itried to find the middle and cut them in half so they're more cooking and eatingfriendly.

Lo Mein noodles are an egg noodle sothey won't take long to cook.

Only about four to five minutes then i'm going todrain and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking process.

You can add a little oil at this pointto keep the strands separated but, I find just a little fluff every now and thendoes the trick.

If you can't find Lo Mein noodles youcan also use a pasta like spaghetti, linguine or fettuccine.

This is another stir fry so you want tohave everything prepped and ready to go before cooking.

Tonight I'm using somegarden onions and I just love celery and carrots in my Lo Mein.

I usually use sliced cabbage or napacabbage but I only had bok choy.

So, I am using both the bottom and the tops.

Basically, I use what I have on hand.

I amcutting the veggies into matchstick size pieces so they cook fast and mix wellwith the Lo Mein.

And now for the sauce! Of course we have to start with some soy sauce and this is my little secret to a good Lo Mein.

I've made a lot of Lo Mein over theyears and i found using this mushroom dark soy sauce will give the Lo Meinthat smoky hint of flavor.

You can use just a dark soy sauce but i find it doesnot taste the same.

Also going in with some oyster sauce and some chicken broth.

You can also use water or vegetablebroth.

Adding a little bit of white pepper and a drizzle of sesame oil.

Giving that a goodwhisk and setting to the side.

You can find this recipe and the list ofingredients in the description box below.

I think we're finally ready for the funpart and we're going to be eating in 10 minutes! In my wok on medium-high i'm adding acouple tablespoons of oil, the whites of garden onions, mincedgarlic and ginger.

Giving that a good stir for about 30 seconds and then wewill add more veggies.

Turning my heat up to high and in goesmy carrots, celery and the bottoms of my bok choy.

Going to stir constantly andcook for about two minutes.

Stirring and cooking for another one to two minutes.

Here are the tops to the bok choy andthe green onions.

This is half of the pound of Lo Mein.

I'mdividing it into two.

It makes it easier to handle in thewok.

In goes half of the sauce I made and I'm saving the other half for thenext round of Lo Mein.

I wish you could smell this! Giving thisa good toss to make sure everything is well combined and it's ready to serve! I find that some put sugar in their LoMein sauce to sweeten.

We don't like our Lo Mein sweet but you can adjust to yourtaste.

My second batch of Lo Mein I'm addingone of my favorites and that is bean sprouts.

I love the texture and the crunch theygive the Lo Mein.

This is a vegetable Lo Mein but you canadd any meat.
