How to Make The Best Chinese Lo Mein ~ Chinese Food Recipe

mayo 13, 2018

Lo mein is another one of my all-time favorite Chinese meals it is so quick easy and delicious I’m Tess and welcome to my kitchen I buy my lo mein noodles at my local Asian grocery store I buy them frozen and thaw when I’m ready this is a pound of lo mein noodles they come in very long strands so I try to find the middle and cut them in half so they’re more cooking and eating friendly lo mein noodles are an egg noodle so they won’t take long to cook only about 4 to 5 minutes then I’m going to drain and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking process you can add a little oil at this point to keep the strands separated but I find just a little fluff every now and then does the trick if you can’t find lo mein noodles you can also use a pasta like spaghetti linguini or fettuccine this is another stir fry so you want to have everything prepped and ready to go before cooking tonight I’m using some garden onions and I just love celery and carrots in my lo mein I usually use sliced cabbage or napa cabbage I only have bok choy so I’m using both the bottom and the tops basically I use what I have on hand and I cut the veggies into matchstick size pieces so they cook fast and mix well with the lo mein and now for the sauce of course we have to start with some soy sauce and this is my little secret to a good lo mein I’ve made a lot of lo mein over the years and I found using this mushroom dark soy sauce will give the low main that smoky hint of flavor you can use just a dark soy sauce but I find it does not taste the same also going in with some oyster sauce and some chicken broth to thin it out you can also use water or vegetable broth a little bit of white pepper and a drizzle of sesame oil giving that a good whisk and setting to the side you can find this recipe and the list of ingredients in the description box below I think we’re finally ready for the fun part and we’re going to be eating in ten minutes in my wok on medium-high I’m adding a couple tablespoons of oil the whites of my garden onions minced garlic and gin giving that a good stir for about 30 seconds and then we will add more veggies turning my heat up to high and INGOs my carrots celery and the bottoms of my bok choy going to stir constantly and cook for about two minutes this goes quickly if you like this lo mein recipe video please remember to give me a thumbs up subscribe and leave a comment below you can also find me and more of what I’m cooking on Facebook and test cooks view blog next are the bamboo shoots that are rinsed really well and drained stirring and cooking for another 1 to 2 minutes here are the tops to the bok choy and the green onions this is half of the pound of lo mein I’m dividing it into two it makes it easier to handle in the walk-in goes half of the sauce I made and I’m saving the other half for the next round of lo mein I wish you could smell this giving this a good toss to make sure everything is well combined and it’s ready to serve I find that some put sugar in there lo mein sauce to sweeten we don’t like our lo mein sweet but you can adjust to your taste my second batch of lo mein I’m adding one of my favorites and that is bean sprouts I love the texture and the crunch they give the lo mein this is a vegetable lo mein but you can add any meat make it your own we just love lo mein and it is a frequent meal at our home an inexpensive meal that is healthier than takeout easy to make and absolutely delicious a great way to use leftover vegetables it is a win-win meal every way I hope you give this one main recipe a try tell me in the comments section below how you like your lo mein and until next time enjoy and thanks so much for joining me here in my kitchen you can subscribe here for my future video recipes and remember to come visit me on Facebook you never know what I might be cooking until next time much love
