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.

Good, healthy food

I made this last night, it took one hour total from starting to chop to setting on the table. I cut back the vinegar as suggested by everyone (1.5 TBLS) , added 1 TBLS of Asian garlic pepper sauce (comes in a jar in the Chinese food section) LOTS more garlic as we love it, halved the amount of snap peas and added some broccoli and mushrooms to bring the veggies up to 2 cups. Towards the end I separated out some for leftovers then added shredded napa cabbage and shredded carrots to the pan, warmed and served with garlic Parmesan bread. Very good meal and lots of leftovers.

When I have spaghetti-type leftovers, I like to heat a small cast iron skillet in the toaster oven, swipe with olive oil when it's hot, then dump in the spaghetti leftovers to warm up. The hot skillet gives the bottom and sides some crunch.

Easy to make, fresh ingredients

Needs oyster sauce

A shake or two of oyster sauce added to the sauce will make a world of difference. It's a little extra salt and sugar, but still way healthier than Chinese takeout.

This was just OK. I followed the recipe exactly. Not the best thing I ever ate but it was quick and easy. I'll make again with the added veggies that other reviewers recommended.

BOMB-DIGITY

Used Sesame seed oil in place of canola and reduced the rice vinegar to 2 tablespoons. Added a few other veggies and this was aMAzing! Definitely going to make this again. Thank you Eating well!
