Lo Mein

The other day I was trying to figure out what to do with some left over pork loin I had in my fridge. I came across this recipe for Lo Mein at Blog Chef. I didn’t have everything the recipe called for so I just improvised with what I had in the house. It worked out wonderful.

My only complaint was that it was a little too spicy for me. My lips burned after each bite. So next time, I’ll cut the red pepper in half. This recipe will work well using leftover and what you have in the house. Be create and use what veggies you have. Below I included the original recipe with my alterations added.

Ingredients
  

  • 8 ounces linguine spaghetti or vermicelli noodles, cooked until al dente (I used fettuccine)
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil I just used enough to coat my pan
  • 1 tsp dried red pepper flakes I would cut this in half unless you like things really spicy
  • 2 cups fresh mushrooms sliced (I didn't have any of these)
  • 1 carrot peeled and sliced into thin strips (didn't have these either)
  • 1 red bell pepper sliced (I had some red and yellow)
  • 1 onion sliced
  • 2 Tbsp garlic minced (I only used 1 Tbsp. 2 sounded too much)
  • 2 tsp ginger minced
  • 1 green onion chopped (I didn't have this)
  • I added 1 stalk of celery sliced
  • 1 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • ¼ cup hoisin sauce
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • ¼ tsp curry powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • You can add any left over meat if you want. Beef chicken or pork would work well. I used 6 thick slices of pork loin.
