I tried to make a house lo mein for my husband and I used the shrimp marinade from this recipe. He said the shrimp was the best part of the dish! I will try again with the same marinade on all of the meat and possibly even the rest of the recipe.
We really liked this! We couldn't find snow peas so we used snap peas. We also added mushrooms. Other than that we followed directions as is. Very tasty!
It was definitely a Thai recipe, I'm not the biggest fan of Thai but it was nice and simple enough to make. Suggestion: I did add some brown sugar at the end and it really added to the dish.
This recipe turned out to be a little more time consuming than I expected - mostly peeling the shrimp. When I first tried it, I thought it was ok but that I'd leave the lo mein to my local chinese restaurant. It just didn't taste like the take out that I've grown to adore and the time it took didn't seem worth the 'not quite right' taste. But as I kept eating, the simple flavors grew on me. It is now 1 hour after dinner and I can't stop thinking about the left overs!! Although a bit time consuming, I will certainly make this recipe again. Perhaps with some broccoli next time. And I would love to be able to find some fresh lo mein but the fettuccine did just fine. My sauce also didn't thicken as much as I would've expected but I suspect I may have just gotten a little impatient and not given it enough time.
This is a definite keeper!! I used collard greens torn up instead of Bok Choy which was very expensive. I also added a few sliced fresh mushrooms. Otherwise made to recipe. I did have to add a bit more oil. This tastes great, is quick to make and is a beautiful presentation. I sprinkled with regular sesame seeds and black ones. I halved the recipe and got 4 generous servings.
My husband gives this a 10 - in keeping with f.com rating I will happily give it a 5 star. I scaled it back as a side dish for 2 (would easily have served 3) and other than the addition of mushrooms and bean sprouts made as directed. We will definitely be enjoying this for years to come. Thanks for posting!
We used shredded carrots, broccoli florets, celery, and snow peas for the veggies. I added ingredients to the pan based on cooking times (celery and broccoli first) until all the veggies were cooked, then added my shrimp in with the veggies and cooked until done. Then added the sauce and noodles to everything in the pan. I'm not one for a bunch of little batches and getting extra dishes dirty. This definitely needed reduced sodium soy sauce, which I didn't have on hand. All in all very good, and pretty good for us. thanks
This was wonderful, and very easy to make. I made it exactly as described. I will be adding this recipe to my rotation!
Tasted great and easy to make. I live 80 miles from nearest market so I just made it with what I had on hand. Used powdered ginger instead of fresh and it was fine. For veges I used carrots, mushrooms, snow peas, and bell pepper. I would like it with the cabbage so I will just have to make it again!
Great recipe I have been wondering how to make veg lo mein and we were already having shrimp for dinner so I just omitted the shrimp I turned out great! My DS is so picky but he tried one of the noodles off his friends plate then ate 2 plates full! They said it is better than the chiness rest! Thanks again!
