Lo Mein

What You’ll Need

  • 1 1/2 pounds of lo mein noodles
  • 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • 2 inches of ginger root, minced
  • 1 1/2 cups of snow peas, halved
  • 1 pound of assorted mushrooms
  • 2 red bell peppers
  • 4 scallions
  • 1 tablespoon of toasted sesame oil
  • 2 cups of fresh bean sprouts
  • 3/4 cup of soy sauce
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced

How to Make

Start by cooking the lo mein noodles al dente, as per the instructions on the box. While that’s cooking, cut the bell peppers, seed them and then slice them into thin pieces. Next, cut the scallions all at a diagonal into small pieces. Next, get out a wok, or a very large non-stick pan, and heat it over high heat. Once the pan has gotten really hot, add the vegetable oil.

Immediately add the mushrooms, peppers, scallions, bean sprouts and snow peas to the wok or pan and stir fry them. After about a minute, add the garlic and ginger and stir fry for about two more minutes. Add the cooked lo mein and toss it in the mix.

Next, add the soy sauce to the pan and toss the mixture to make sure everything is well coated with the cause. Finally, transfer the whole mix to a plate for serving. Drizzle the sesame oil over top of it for a garnish, serve and enjoy!

This dish pairs well with a side of fried rice or spring rolls. If you’re looking for a very authentic dish, try eating with chopsticks! If you’re looking for a good drink pairing, try a light, dry beer that will complement the salty flavor of the soy sauce.
