BonniE !


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!

    teaspoon sugar

    salt to taste

    teaspoons hot sauce

  • 1
    pound of spaghetti--i use thick spaghetti
  • 1/4
    cup vegetable oil, divided
  • 2
    large eggs beaten
  • 3
    chicken cutlets thinly sliced into strips
  • 2
    teaspoons ground coriander
  • 3
    thin pork chops thinly sliced into strips

    small can sliced water chestnuts

    cups fresh bean sprouts or 4 generous handfuls of shredded cabbage--your choice.



  1. Put 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.
  2. Heat 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.
  3. Season 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.
  4. Pour Lo Mein sauce over the spaghetti and toss to combine. Turn off pan. Toss 30 seconds and let the liquids absorb. Enjoy!
  5. Cook'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.
