  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook spaghetti in the boiling water until cooked through yet firm to the bite, about 12 minutes; drain.
  2. Mix soy sauce, oyster sauce, brown sugar, fish sauce, garlic powder, and ground ginger in a bowl until the sugar dissolves.
  3. Heat oil in a large skillet or wok over medium heat; cook and stir shrimp in hot oil until they start to change color, 1 to 2 minutes. Add broccoli, onion, and mushrooms; cook until just beginning to soften, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir garlic through the vegetable mixture. Push the vegetables to one side of the pan. Cook the eggs in the clear space in the pan, scrambling lightly, until no longer moist, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir the cooked egg with shrimp and vegetables. Add the cooked noodles and the sauce; cook and stir until hot and evenly mixed, about 2 minutes more. Serve immediately.

I'll admit that I was looking for a dish to use up some random vegetables in the fridge and this one fit the bill! The only real changes I made were to use ALL the vegetables I had (onions, mushrooms, cabbage, broccoli, and a green bell pepper.) Other than that, I had to use all fish sauce since I was fresh out of oyster. I also used fresh garlic, sauteed with the veggies, instead of garlic powder. I'm fairly sad I was out of eggs, because I think they would be a great addition to this dish. Luckily, I have plans to make it again, so I'll let ya know! This was great and I can't wait to eat the leftovers for lunch...if they make it that long.

The sauce didn't thicken for me, will try again with some cornstarch. I also didn't care for it as lo mein and will eliminate the noodles and put it over rice next time.

This was really good! Normally I modify the ingredients of a dish after cooking, but this one is good just as it is. I did add a few tablespoons of water late in the cooking process because things were drying out, but I probably could have avoided that with better timing. Really tasty, I had seconds.

I used step two for wonton noodles with carrots and cabbage. Amazing flavor without being too much, very yummy!

So I didn't have all the ingredients. All I had was the garlic powder, ground ginger, spaghetti, brown sugar, canola oil, chicken,the egg and mixed frozen veggies and It still came out great! =)

Of course I changed it up ...the sauce I double the recipes and added 1/2 teaspoon onion powder ... I cooked chicken with onion, garlic,celery,carrot with an splash of orange juice together and set aside...my fresh veggies (pea pods, broccoli,spinach) and water chestnuts all on the side and I cooked up a pound of fettuccine pasta....I had 4 people eating a three different times...to accommodate .... In a sauté pan I scrambled up an egg once cooked added1/2 c sauce, veg, pasta and meat mixture then served... Everyone Loved it! This is a keeper!

Delicious! We luv Chinese at my house but take out is always so greasy - problem solved with this sauce! I don't exactly follow the veggie part, I just use whatever I have on hand. Typically it's red & yellow peppers, zucchini, yellow squash, onions, and broccoli, and just out of personal preference, I always use fresh garlic & ginger instead of powder. I've made this probably a dozen times and it comes out perfect every time. Thanks for sharing!

Very delicious! It looks a little dry at first, but that sauce packs a lot of punch! I thought I would need extra sauce, but I am so glad I didn't try to change it before tasting it! So good!
