Skip takeout and make a healthier Chinese lo mein at home that's packed with vegetables. Make sure you drain your noodles well before adding them, as wet noodles will turn your stir-fry into a soggy mess. For a less spicy option, omit the sriracha hot sauce.
Chinese broccoli has a slight bitter flavor reminiscent of broccoli rabe, which is a good substitute (as is broccolini). Look for it in Asian markets, at farmers' markets and some well-stocked supermarkets; opt for bunches with tight flower buds (open flowers are a sign of age).
Shao Hsing (or Shaoxing) is a seasoned rice wine used in Chinese cooking to flavor sauces, marinades and stir-fries. Look for it in Asian specialty markets or with other Asian ingredients in large supermarkets. In a pinch, dry sherry is a good substitute.
