Panda Express Chow Mein

Panda Express Chow Mein

Ready in 45 minutes

I think technically this is a “Lo Mein” recipe but we will stick with “Chow Mein” because that is what Panda Express calls it. Either way.. this recipe was a HIT at our house! It tasted just like the chow mein at Panda Express (which I love)! This was so cheap and easy to make and it made about 4-5 good-sized servings. Pair this with a couple of our other Asian inspired recipes (click HERE) and you can have a full-on family style Chinese take-out night at home for a fraction of the price of going out! **In this recipe you can add a shake or two of sesame oil to the vegetable oil to add a deeper flavor–but don’t overdo it! I am not including it in the recipe because the sesame oil flavoring can become overpowering real quick if you aren’t careful. Plus, I have made it both ways (with and without sesame oil) and they both taste great.

"Celery is missing from the ingredient list; I used about a cup. I also used 6 cloves of garlic, grated them with a tablespoon of ginger and stir fried them with the veggies. I used more oil, about 3 tablespoons total, one of which was sesame oil. I've also used plain and whole wheat pasta with great results. It's easy to change this recipe up, don't be afraid to use ingredients you enjoy or have on hand. "

Didn't come out well :/ it may have been because I couldn't find the correct noodles at the store. The meal had a funky fishy taste. Yikes! I think I will try it again later with plain ramen noodles

Wat celery there is none in the ingredients just in the directions, I don't understand how much to use? Could you update this one please.

I used ramen as the yakisoba and pre cooked them, forgot to get celery and basically just guesstimated the rest of the ingredients and it came out great, throw some teriyaki or bourbon chicken (also easy recipes) on top and it makes a great easy and quick meal without breaking the bank at a Chinese take out

Great flavours. Added sliced chicken, cooked separately, and fine julienned carrots with the noodles. Will cook again
