Forget take-out and take in the delicious flavor of this super simple dish! I’m typically the first one to order Chinese food but dislike when I get my order and notice they are stingy with the shrimp or they don’t have the vegetables that I want. That’s typically what prompts me to cook my own rendition.
After researching many recipes, I combined a couple of flavors and created this tasty Lo Mein. Trust me, if you cook this for your friends and family there will not be a bite left. This is another one of my recipes where you can contour the meat/vegetables to your liking but don’t compromise on the sauces. That’s what’s really going to complete the taste of this dish.
Give this recipe a try and as always make sure you tag me on social media so I can see how your dish turned out. Enjoy!

*** You can add any meat/veggies that you want to the dish
***Prepping is a very important step when you stir-fry. Chop all your vegetables beforehand because the stir-fry portion goes extremely fast.
*** Since my noodles were already partially cooked, ensure you do not boil too long in the hot water or noodles will get mushy.
