"This shrimp lo mein is easy to prepare and tastes wonderful! Can double the sauce if you like more. Can add additional water or broth to sauce if you like it less thick. Use whatever combination of vegetables you like for about 4 cups total. You can also serve the vegetables and shrimp over the noodles, as opposed to tossing them together."

Very good recipe! Thanks for submitting it. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is that I found the sauce "as-is" was too bland for us--I had to add more oyster sauce and soy sauce to give it flavor, so next time I will just use a little less water and reduce the cornstarch accordingly. I didn't have shrimp, so I used leftover pork chops cut into bite-sized chunks. We also left out the bell pepper (just a preference) and added some cut baby carrots for color and flavor. Delicious! I doubled the recipe for our family of 8, and it made generous portions, so everyone was satisfied, but there were no leftovers!
This was blander than I was expecting. Like the other reviews mentioned, make much more of the sauce than called for. I am going to continue my search for authentic lo mein
This is a very easy meal to prepare and delicious. The only thing I do different is sub the sesame oil with evoo. Just a personal preference. Good directions. You can also make this with any meat of your choice.
Very tasty! I doubled the sauce ingredients, tripled the garlic, added scallions, used snow pea pods instead of snap peas and red bell peppers as opposed to green. Served over 2 pckg. Yakisoba noodles (tossed with sesame oil) and spring rolls. Would make again!
This was simple to follow and allowed for additions or substitutions- added 1/4 c prepared stir fry sauce, (instead of doubling as others suggested )garlic butter (was out of minced), and crushed walnuts as a topping- didn't have cabbage or snap peas on hand. I also added a dash of worsetshire in place of oyster sauce.
Great lo mien!
It is quick, easy and yummy.
had veggies in the fridge to use up so I decided to make a stirfry. The sauce to this one sounded good so I decided to give it a try. I used tofu instead of shrimp and bean sprouts instead of snap peas. The amount of cornstarch called for was too much in comparison to the amount of liquid. The sauce immediately seized up when it hit the hot pan. I had to add another 1/2 cup or so of water to loosen it back up again. This watered down the flavor a little but it was still tasty. I will make this again but adjust the sauce ingredients.
I really liked this recipie, i added hoision sauce and sugar per another recipe, prepared it with green onion, yellow onion, garlic, sugar snap peas and mushrooms. very satisfying and filling. there was nothing I didn't like, but something a little off, could have been the things I added. (reading the other reviews, i added more oyster sauce) the flavors all fade into one another, i think red pepper or some kind of hot sauce would have been a nice addition.
