Lo mein is a Chinese restaurant takeout favorite that’s easy to make at home. This lo mein recipe features lean pork loin chops and snap peas, but snow peas or asparagus work well too. Serve with shredded radish and cabbage tossed with rice vinegar.

Not bad, not great

i used 2 T. vinegar like other suggestions and added carrots, napa cabbage, and onion. this was good, but nothing special. will stick to a stir fry recipe i use for whole foods, which is very similar.

Easy and Great Flavor

I've made many stir fry's and this was the easiest! Just a few ingredients and full of flavor. I thought the amount of soy sauce would be too much but after reading other reviews I made the recipe as written. The balance of flavors was right on. We like things a little spicy so I added crushed chili flakes. Also, marinated the pork in a couple tablespoons of sauce for about 30 minutes. Next time will add more veggies...shredded carrot, napa cabbage.

Easy and tastes great

Used chicken instead of pork and added more vegetables like they do at the restaurant... all we were missing was the egg roll and fortune cookies :). The soy sauce smelled very strong as it was cooking but the taste was very balanced.

Good substitute for takeout

I thought this was tasty. I added more vegetables to the snow peas: broccoli, nappa cabbage, carrot. My husband likes it a little sweeter, so he added a little agave to his dish. Next time I make it, I'll reduce the vinegar to 2 Tbs.

Better than take out!

Good recipe. Added a little soy sauce to our plates but didn't need any other tweaking.

Budget friendly, easy

This was a very good dish.

This was a very good dish. Simple and not too expensive to make. I need to watch my chloresterol now. It is a good addition to many I have found on this site!
