Authentic Pork Lo Mein - Chinese
80 mins (prep 25, cooking 55)
20 ingredients
2-4 servings
My friends mom is Chinese and living in Hong Kong, and she sent my friend this family recipe, at my request, because I couldn't find a good one on the internet, and I asked him if his mom had a special recipe. If you love Lo Mein and want to make an authentic Chinese recipe for it, then this is it! You can find the noodles in your neighborhood Asian Market and maybe in the International section of your local supermarket. If you can't find fresh (chinese) noodles, then use the dry noodles. Rice wine should not be confused with sake, although sake is certainly rice wine. The two are made very differently, and the recipe below is for rice wine NOT Sake. You may substitute Mirin, which is a Japanese sweet cooking wine. You can change this up and make Shrimp, Chicken, or Beef Lo Mein by using either fresh whole shrimp, fresh chicken pieces or beef strips in place of the tenderloin. Cooking time includes marinating time. To poster Chef #868046, I am not sure what you mean when you say this isn't "authentic", because in my eyes it definately is. Furthermore, if you knew green peppers weren't "authentic" then why did you put them in your dish? Also, if you thought this recipe wasn't "authentic", and knew what the ingredients were supposed to be, why did you bother to make my recipe? I would have asked you in an email, but your not accepting mail, and since you just joined yesterday and this was your first review, I am assuming your not really interested in what I have to say anyway :) But I feel better after having said it, and with that said, those that try it, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!!!
