There are many types of noodles available in the shops, ranging from egg noodles (yellow) to rice noodles (white). They also come in different shapes and thicknesses, and as you would expect, recipes will differ according to the type of noodle, as well as the country / region where it is most popular.
This recipe I am sharing is using egg noodles. Lo Mein, is a dish which is often served in addition to a variety of other dishes in Chinese cuisine. It usually comprises of a meat and some vegetables, and all combined in a delicious sauce.
I have made this recipe using the ingredients listed below, but you can of course swap the beef for chicken, pork, tofu, or leave the protein out completely.
Regarding the vegetables, I simply choose whatever is in season at the time, and ones which will add a little texture and crunch to the dish. Vegetables such as broccoli, sugar snap peas, mange tout, mushrooms, green beans, bell peppers, the sky’s the limit! So you choose what you know your family enjoys!
The trick with making any Chinese food and it’s guaranteed success is to prepare everything before hand. You need to get all your ingredients together, chopped, diced, sauces prepared, absolutely everything that belongs in a recipe must be at hand when you fire your wok up!
