Lo Mein is a fantastic Chinese takeout option if you’re looking for something a bit thicker than the traditional Chow Mein.
As a child growing up my mother was not very knowledgeable in making Chinese food (she once made chow mein with holy messenger hair noodles). I needed to realize how to make lo mein like in Chinese eateries yet regardless of her earnest attempts we’d end up with were soy sauce enhanced noodles with every one of the veggies she figured she could cover up in the pot.It was a fearless exertion, however it never genuinely suggested a flavor like Chinese food from a Chinese Restaurant.
Since watching my #1 Daytime syndicated program make their rendition of The Chew chicken lo mein (I’m an enormous Micheal Symon fan), I had a hankering to make some lo mein.What you’re taking a gander at is my immediately put together lo mein with the fixings I had close by and it was pretty much as scrumptious as my #1 takeout spot. My significant other was watching alongside me yet he didn’t comprehend the distinction of lo mein versus chow mein until he saw the distinction in these noodles!
