Really good homemade take on pork Lo Mein! It did turn out a little thin and soupy. If I made it again I'd reduce the broth & the red pepper flakes. It was fine for adults but too spicy for kids.

Very confused by the recipe. I want to try it but it says 5/24 and 5/12 for amounts. Please help

Excellent! Great flavor, and tasted and smelled authentic. I added cabbage and sprouts, and unfortunately had no sherry or sesame seeds. Still great!

I made a bit extra sauce and marinated the pork overnight. Served over Jasmine rice..Very good and so easy.
