  • Sauce:
  • 3 rounded tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 3 tablespoons dark soy, eyeball it
  • 3 tablespoons water, eyeball it
  • 2 teaspoons hot sauce, eyeball it
  • Everything Lo Mein:
  • 1 pound spaghetti
  • Salt
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil, divided
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 3 chicken breast cutlets, thinly sliced into strips
  • 3 thin cut pork chops, thinly sliced into strips
  • Black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 2 inches fresh ginger, chopped or grated
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 6 scallions, cut into 3-inch lengths then sliced lengthwise
  • 1/2 pound shiitake mushrooms, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into quarters, seeded, then sliced
  • 1 small can sliced water chestnuts
  • 2 cups fresh bean sprouts, 4 generous handfuls or 1/2 pound shredded cabbage, your choice

Mix together sauce ingredients and reserve.

Bring pasta water to a boil, salt water and cook spaghetti to al dente.

While pasta cooks, heat a tablespoon of vegetable oil in a large, nonstick skillet over high heat. When oil ripples, add beaten eggs and scramble them to light golden brown, remove and reserve.

Season the meat with salt, pepper and coriander. Heat the remaining vegetable oil to a ripple, then add meat and stir-fry 4 minutes, push meat to the side and add ginger, garlic and veggies. Stir-fry veggies 2 minutes, then drain and add pasta and eggs back to skillet. Pour sauce over the spaghetti and toss to combine. Turn off pan. Toss 30 seconds and let the liquids absorb.

I followed this recipe exactly and I'm totally unimpressed. A full pound of pasta makes a ridiculous amount of food and the whole dish was too big for my largest skillet, which is 15 inches! As for the flavor, this in no way resembles any lo mein I've ever had. Spaghetti is the wrong texture, 2 teaspoons of any hot sauce is too much, the ginger/garlic ratio is way off and leaves the dish slightly bitter, I could go on and on. In short, this recipe should be called "Spicy Teriyaki Spaghetti: Makes enough to throw 2 servings in the compost every night for a week" Like everything else you do, this is an epic failure, Rachel Ray. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great recipe! I used cooked (leftover) pork loin cut into strips as the meat and used only 1/2 lb of whole grain spaghetti which was excellent in this dish. I think that amount is the right amount and would never use a full pound. Kept sauce as written. Used bean sprouts, not cabbage. This made 4 generous servings, even with 1/2 the pasta, I can't imagine using a full pound. Can't wait to have the leftovers for lunch tomorrow! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent - I removed the egg, added crimini and oyster mushrooms and more hoisin sauce. I used savoy cabbage and a part of the beef that had a little more fat to it for flavor. I have had to fix this back to back for my family. this is a meal you can keep in the refrigerator because you can eat it like it is or you can have it as a side dish with any meat. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love it! We modify it to fit our family. Mostly just use the vegetables and serve chicken or pork on the side... item not reviewed by moderator and published

This is a great recipe. The sauce is what makes the dish, and all hosein sauces are not the same. I reccommend you try a couple and decide on the flavor you like. I dont reccommend the brand that most people associate with grocery store chinese food. Also, if you use a lb of pasta like the recipe suggests then make more sauce, i usually double it. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Loved it !! I read the previous comments and doubled the sauce, and will make again !! I loved all the fresh veggies . item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very good. Used the vegies we liked and also chicken, but didn't double the sauce. Big Mistake. The meal was very dry, so I made another portion of it. Much better!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
