One of my all-time favorite take out foods is Lo-Mein, this recipe will win you over to make it again and again, it’s made with ground pork, is ready in under 30 minutes and you’ll probably have plenty of leftovers to enjoy too!
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 tried 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.
My other favorite version of this recipe is chicken lo main, just use boneless skinless chicken breasts sliced and sauteed, and add the sauce and vegetables with pasta, so delicious! Often I leave out the vinegar and oyster sauce, but just add the soy sauce, sesame oil, and chicken broth, it’s so easy and yummy and is one of my favorite go-to meals.

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