Artolsav 8 months agoReally good, really easy, can easily be used with any meat. (We used steamed fish cake.) My husband and I both liked, along with my 5 year old and 2 year old. What could be better than that?
donwal 11 month agoGreat, as close to restaurant style as you can get. I added 1 1/2 tesp. of corn starch to sauce to thicken it up a bit.Better the next day.

Mattywoods 1 year agoThis was great! I made this for my wife last night and she loved it!
Kesmeier 1 year agoNext time we make this, we will back off the red pepper a bit. We used fully cooked baby shrimp, and even the kids loved it.
Ellie429 2 years agoThis is a great lo mein that is perfect for quite a few different noodles. Great with rice noodles.
Mauimichele 3 years agoThis is delicious and simple! Use caution with the red pepper flakes I added the required amount and it was a tad spicier than I expected but it was still amazing!
mermaiden 4 years agoI prefer to use noodles I've bought at the Asian market; they're lot like ramen, usually. When out, spaghetti works just fine, though! We like to have Shrimp lo-mein. [I posted this recipe.]
