Chinese Takeout: Homemade Lo Mein in 4 Easy Steps!

Put down that phone and step away from the menu. I promise you that this recipe for Lo Mein Noodles by blogger, Damn Delicious, is absolutely phenomenal. In fact, on my browser I have a bookmarked file labeled, “Chinese Takeout Recipes”. This recipe is my go-to for lo mein noodles. I admit it, sometimes I just crave the taste of soy sauce. I can thank my Asian husband for that 😉 . No, but seriously, this lo mein dish is sweet, slightly spicy, and oh-so-flavorful! The sauce is a blend of sesame oil, soy sauce, minced ginger, and Sriracha. And the best part? You can whip up this dish in under 30 minutes flat! So before you go spending money at your local Chinese restaurant, grab a few veggies from the fridge and give this dish a try! Enjoy this recipe everyone and let’s get cooking! 🙂
