Serving Pork Lo Mein with Chop Sticks

(Post modified with new photos on 1/18/23.)

We love Asian food in our house and I always enjoy going out for Chinese food at our local buffet. This Lo Mein dish is a perfect choice for a weeknight dinner to make in your home. It’s quick and easy and so delicious.

I have used linguine and spaghetti when making lo mein, but for my most recent dish, I used a new pasta I found at Aldi called Bucatini. It’s round like spaghetti, but much larger and is hollow on the inside. I thought it might be fun to use it for this dish. This bronze cut pasta did a great job of catching the sauce, and it received a thumbs up from my family. See my Chicken Lo Mein Recipe Here.

Instructions for Making This Recipe

Ingredients for this Recipe

Gather all your ingredients so that you have everything you need close at hand on the counter or table.

 

Prepare the Ingredients

Using a boning knife and cutting board, slice the boneless pork loin chops into thin slices.

With a second cutting board, chop the cabbage, sweet onion, and bell peppers.

I like to use green, red, or yellow bell peppers for this recipe to give it an extra punch of color. Use what you have. 

Slice the mushrooms. Peel and julienne the carrots. Mince the garlic.

Cook the pasta according to package directions to al dente, 8-10 minutes. Drain and set aside until ready to use.

If you have access to Lo Mein noodles, or Chinese egg noodles, please feel free to use them. They are rather hard to find in our area, so I use linguine, spaghetti, or Bucatini for this recipe.

 

Make the Sauce

 

In a small bowl, whisk together the chicken broth, soy sauce, honey, rice vinegar, sesame oil, freshly ground black pepper, ground ginger, and cornstarch. Set aside.

 

Prepare the Lo Mein

In a large skillet or shallow Dutch oven, heat the olive oil and cook the pork slices until no longer pink, about 4-5 minutes. Remove from skillet and set aside.

If you have a Chinese wok, this would be a perfect recipe to use with it. Just be sure that it has been well-seasoned before using. If not, a large skillet or shallow Dutch oven or casserole braiser works well.

Saute the Vegetables until Tender

In the hot skillet, cook the prepared cabbage, onion, bell peppers, mushrooms, carrots and minced garlic until tender, about 2-3 minutes, adding more oil if necessary.

Pour in the prepared sauce mixture and cook, stirring until sauce thickens.

Add Pasta and Pork to the Dish

Add the cooked pasta to the sauce, followed by the pork. Stir and toss until fully coated with the sauce.

Serve Lo Mein in a Pretty Blue Willow Bowl

Serve warm with Egg Rolls, Crab Rangoon, and Egg Drop Soup. This recipe will serve 8-10 people.
