Longevity Noodles with Spicy Pork & Vegetables
Serve this spicy pork-and-vegetable lo mein for Chinese New Year or for dinner anytime. While some cooks like to cut the noodles into 6- to 8-inch lengths to make them easier to combine with other ingredients, for the New Year the noodles can never be cut because that symbolizes bad luck. The longer the noodles, the longer your life! Be sure to thinly slice the pork and mushrooms so they cook through. And thoroughly dry the bok choy to avoid creating a braise instead of a stir-fry.
14-inch flat-bottomed wok
Find fresh lo mein noodles in the refrigerator section of most Asian markets. You can substitute fresh linguine.
We recommend Yamasa Less Salt Soy Sauce for its superior flavor compared to other brands.
If you can't find chile-garlic sauce, you can substitute Sriracha and add 1 teaspoon minced garlic when you add ginger to the wok.
