Pork Lo Mein

Pork Lo Mein

Pork Lo Mein is a Asian recipe to try making for your family. Tender pieces of thinly sliced pork and vegetables in a tangy sauce served over perfectly cooked linguine. So good!

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.

 

Ingredients Needed to Make Pork Lo Mein

  • uncooked linguine
  • vegetable oil
  • pork loin chops (cut into thin strips)
  • chicken broth
  • soy sauce (I like to use a reduced sodium version)
  • brown sugar
  • rice vinegar
  • sesame oil
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • ground ginger
  • cornstarch
  • sweet onion
  • cabbage
  • green bell pepper
  • white button mushrooms
  • carrots
  • garlic cloves

 

Instructions for Making This Recipe

Gather all your ingredients so that you have everything you need close at hand on the counter or table. Prepare your ingredients. Slice the pork loin chops into thin slices. Chop the sweet onion, cabbage, and green bell peppers. Slice the mushrooms. Peel and julienne the carrots. Mince the garlic.

Cook linguine according to package directions to al dente, 8-9 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 used linguine for this recipe. You could also use spaghetti noodles, if you want.

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

In a large skillet or shallow Dutch oven, heat oil and cook thinly sliced pork 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.

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

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

Add cooked pork and linguine, tossing to coat.

This recipe will serve 4-6 people.
