Pork Lo Mein

One of the best parts of ordering Chinese Food to me is having leftovers the next day.

I usually make sure I order extra, just so I can enjoy it all over again.

Lo Mein is one of my favorites.

I typically order Chicken Lo Mein, but once I tired making Lo Mein at home with ground pork, I was hooked!

This is one of those go to meals for me, I make it OFTEN.

Saute the ground pork with scallions and asparagus.

 

Ladle pasta in so the starch of the pasta water helps thicken the sauce.

Pour the sauce over and give it all a toss.

Pork Lo Mein

  • 1 lb ground pork
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 teaspoon chicken bouillon
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar

  2. In skillet cook ground pork.
  3. Add in asparagus and scallions.

  5. Prepare sauce: Mix water, bouillon, soy and oyster sauce along with sesame oil and vinegar together.
  6. When pasta is finished cooking, do not drain, but ladle the pasta over the pork and asparagus.
  7. Pour on sauce and stir.
  8. Add carrot and mix together.
Notes
The starch from the pasta water will help the sauce be thick and stick to noodles. If you prefer it spicy, add chili oil. Sometimes I add fresh grated ginger. This meal is easy and ready in less than 30 minutes. This is WONDERFUL reheated. Perfect meal to make ahead. A fun dish to bring to a party. You may vary the vegetables and use, broccoli, eggplant or squash or a mixture of all of them.

 

 

Stir in carrot at the end.

I make this meal just about every week. I vary the vegetables according to what is in season. This is a crowd pleaser, it re heats wonderfully. It really is like having great Chinese food leftovers in you refrigerator, it’s so good….some days I eat it for breakfast!

    I made this recipe last night but substituted broccoli because my boyfriend doesn’t like asparagus. I also used Japanese noodles instead of fetuccini. It was delicious and I’m having leftovers for lunch! Thank you for this easy meal idea!
