This is a very tasty Lo Mein recipe. It goes nicely as a main course meal or as a side dish with my Thai Thighs recipe. You can use either pork or chicken; you can add some of your favorite vegetables and definitely make this dish your own. I am happy to share this dish with my JAP friends! Enjoy!

How to Make LO MEIN

Step-by-Step

  • 1Put the water on to boil for the noodles. Cook spaghetti until al dente or a little more if you wish. Make the Lo Mein sauce and set aside.
  • 2Heat a tablespoon of vegetable oil in a large, nonstick skillet over high heat. When oil ripples, add beaten eggs and scramble them to light golden brown, remove and set aside.
  • 3Season the meat with salt, pepper and coriander. Heat the remaining vegetable oil to a ripple, then add meat and stir-fry 4 minutes, push meat to the side and add ginger, garlic and veggies. Stir-fry veggies 2 minutes, then drain and add pasta and eggs back to skillet.
  • 4Pour Lo Mein sauce over the spaghetti and toss to combine. Turn off pan. Toss 30 seconds and let the liquids absorb. Enjoy!
  • 5Cook's Tip: You can use either all chicken or all pork in this recipe, too, if it is a main dish meal. It is good both ways.
